The Curve WINTER 2018

The Curve WINTER 2018 OUR LATEST ROUNDUP OF CURATED HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDS OF DESIGN, STYLE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION E-TYPE ZERO BACK TO THE FUTURE Following its debut in concept form in 2017, the all-electric Jaguar E-type Zero is now slated to go into full production from March 2019. Jaguar Classic has already gained worldwide acclaim for its E-type Reborn restorations, and now the Classic Works facility in Coventry, UK, will be offering fully future-proofed, restored E-type cars for tech-savvy classic car enthusiasts as well as those seeking efficiency, reliability and timeless design in one compelling, groundbreaking package. While the E-type Zero looks like its original forebear, under the hood it’s all change: The E-type’s venerable straight-six XK engine has been replaced with a bespoke electric motor, developing 220 kW, that sends power to the rear wheels and will spirit this unique EV to 62 mph in 5.5 seconds 1 . The 40-kWh battery delivers a range of around 170 miles 2 (official figure to be confirmed following commencement of production) and can be recharged overnight. The lithium-ion battery pack, being of similar weight and dimensions to the now-departed gas engine and transmission, means that the E-type Zero’s basic structure has remained the same, allowing it to drive, handle, ride and brake just like a prime example from yesteryear. Indeed, aside from the electric powertrain, efficient LED headlights and optional modified fascia – which features a central touchscreen in the dashboard – the E-type Zero is largely original. And should its owner at any point decide to return to the E-type’s authentic gas-powered past, the EV conversion will be fully reversible. Truly, a classic car for the past, present and future. To purchase a Jaguar E-type Zero, or to convert your existing E-type to an electric powertrain through Jaguar Classic Works, please contact a member of the specialist team on +44 (0)203 6011255 or zero@jaguarlandrover.com PHOTOGRAPHY: DAVID SHEPHERD 1 Always follow local speed limits. 2 Figures shown are manufacturer’s fuel economy and driving range estimates.
