CONCEPT ZERO ZERO COMPROMISE The most beautiful car ever – remade On 25 July 1965, Bob Dylan took the stage at the Newport Folk Festival. Instead of his usual acoustic guitar, he shocked the audience by carrying a Fender Stratocaster for the first time. A global icon had gone electric. It’s for this very reason that the Jaguar Classic team dubbed the E-Type Concept Zero ‘Project Dylan’ during its development. The incredible creation is based on a 1968 Series 1.5 model of the iconic E-Type Roadster and is almost completely original in specification, with one major but fundamental difference: in place of the old XK six-cylinder engine is a 220 kW electric powertrain. The E-Type Concept Zero drives, handles, rides and brakes like an original E-Type. In fact, at around 40kg lighter, the new incarnation is actually quicker, capable of 0-60mph in only 5.5 seconds. The unique combination of the renowned E-Type experience with electric propulsion creates a breathtaking, zero-emission driving sensation. “Our aim with Concept Zero is to give Classic Jaguars a sustainable future in changing environmental and economic conditions,” explains Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic. By integrating it into the existing E-Type structure, the new electric powertrain, which uses some technology from the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, could be used to transform any XK-Engine Jaguar, spanning a range of models from 1948 to 1992. And because of its seamless integration, a conventional internal combustion engine could be reinstalled at any point. The E-Type was once famously described by Enzo Ferrari as ‘the most beautiful car ever made’. With Concept Zero, Jaguar Classic has undoubtedly created the most beautiful electric car ever made.
