In this issue we return to top level motorsport but not in a conventional way, and by doing so accelerate the development of our electric powertrains. In tandem, we introduce our Jaguar I-PACE Concept vehicle - a revolutionary new model available to reserve now for delivery in 2018.
The Diary SPRING/SUMMER
The Diary SPRING/SUMMER 2017 May 26th May THE 35TH AMERICA’S CUP IN BERMUDA Six 60 mph sailing boats will take to the Great Bermuda Sound in May in the battle for the oldest trophy in sporting history — The America’s Cup. These are the new generation of 50 ft foiling catamarans that fly across the water rather than plough through it. Powered by solid wings as long as those on a commercial airliner, they can sail more than three times the speed of the wind. Leading the charge for Great Britain — a nation yet to win a trophy it first established 166 years ago — are Land Rover BAR, helmed by sailing legend Sir Ben Ainslie in a boat co-developed with Land Rover. 12 THEJAGUAR

The Expo will take place at a speciallydesigned complex spreading over 400 acres in the heart of Astana, including a 61 acre exhibition center.
