The latest issue introduces our new ‘cub’, the E-PACE compact practical sports car, which is already turning heads on the street. As we commit to electrifying every new Jaguar from 2020, we explore how pushing boundaries on track helps develop our sports cars, from writing motorsport history at Le Mans, to taking on the Nürburgring with the extreme XE SV Project 8 and being at the very cutting edge with the FIA Formula E Championship.
13.30 E2 Exhausted,
13.30 E2 Exhausted, exhilarated (and fed at the Castle Climbing’s cafe), the girls are very happy relaxing in the E-PACE’s spacious rear seats, glancing up through its large optional panoramic sunroof at the city around them while listening to music on Spotify via the car’s InControl Apps and simultaneously catching up on their busy digital lives via the optional 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. This First Edition specification car has five USB charging points to stay topped up, and a tablet can be stowed under the central armrest. While driving I see the influence of the F-TYPE continued inside the E-PACE’s cabin, which has a sporty driving position with a pleasing cockpit feel that’s also clutter-free. Every surface exudes quality, from the exposed stitching on the dash to the metal accents around the door handles and sports-shift gear selector. Out of rush hour it doesn’t take long to get to the Brick Lane area so we can wonder at its signature independent shops, colourful street art and fashionforward types doing their thing in the quirky and offbeat market atmosphere, a must for curious city explorers and hip city slickers alike. 24 THE JAGUAR
Above: Featuring optional side steps to aid entry, the E-PACE (left) also boasts high sight lines. You can also stay connected about town with up to five USB power sockets, tablet storage, wireless links to InControl Apps like Spotify and optional 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Below: The Serpentine Pavilion in Hyde Park features a new design every year, offering a calm creative oasis in this bustling and vibrant cosmopolitan metropolis 4PM W2 After bustling, earthy east London, we navigate westward in search of tranquil surroundings. On a sunny London day like this, the E-PACE remains calm to drive, but it’s good to know it’s equipped with the All Wheel Drive system for optimum traction on all surfaces, in all kinds of weather – should you need it. Passing by Buckingham Palace we arrive at the often underestimated but beautiful Hyde Park. As well as lovely lakes and greenery, this royal park also houses the eclectic Serpentine Gallery. Each year for the last seventeen years, the gallery has commissioned a temporary pavilion by some of the world’s greatest architects, from Zaha Hadid to Frank Gehry. This year’s structure by Francis Kéré draws inspiration from large trees in the remote desert village in Burkina Faso where he grew up. It’s a wonderful oasis to relax and regroup, before heading over the River Thames to locate dinner. THE JAGUAR 25
