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.
E-PACE Below: Away from
E-PACE Below: Away from the city centre, Peckham offers an unconventional experience of multi-cultural London, from the wonderfully flavourful Taiwanese restaurant Mr Bao to the great views both on- and off-screen at the Rooftop Film Club 6PM SE15 As south London has been my home for 25 years, driving to our next location is child’s play. Peckham didn’t always fit everyone’s idea of the best place to eat out, but part of London’s energy is how it endlessly morphs and changes as new waves of people choose to call it home and set up places to reflect their culture. Small but perfectly formed Taiwanese restaurant Mr Bao is one such example. Their fluffy steamed buns – filled with prawns, chicken, mushrooms and more – are dreamy, and the neighbourhood atmosphere buzzes with both locals and well-informed visitors, served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Full again, we leave the car safely parked and walk five minutes down the road to the Peckham branch of the Rooftop Film Club to see Back to the Future as never before. Prior to taking our seats we sip a drink at the next-door bar while taking in a 360° view of the ever-changing London cityscape. After the film, we drop off the kids to their granddad close by, check our own luggage in the large 577-litre boot and head back into the actual City of London for a grown-up night at the Napoleon Hotel. Probably the city’s only “one-room hotel”, it’s is a rather unusual but fitting place for us to end the day, kick back and reflect on an adventure that has taken us through an edgy city that is truly full of ongoing change and surprises.

11.30PM EC2 Once commuters and revellers have gone home, the Napoleon Hotel room itself (above) is remarkably peaceful for such a wonderfully central part of the city. After our packed day, rest comes easily. Refreshed, by the next morning we’re ready to take on the world again (and collect our kids). With the new E-PACE still our transport companion, progress should remain as stylish, practical, swift and connected as before. Plan your own urban escape.
