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.

February 18th February FORMULA E IN BUENOS AIRES: JUST WATCH OUT FOR NOODLE Fictional Japanese comic book figure and founder member of virtual band Gorillaz, Noodle, has a thing for fast, electric cars. Panasonic Jaguar Racing drivers Adam Carroll and Mitch Evans have been warned not to let their I-TYPE cars out of their sight in Buenos Aires on February 18th. Season 3 of the FIA Formula E Championship kicked off in October 2016 (see page 30). In last season’s dramatic race, the Argentinian capital more than demonstrated the ability of the Formula E championship to electrify audiences. While a common engine for all the teams has proved to be a guarantor of highly entertaining and closely fought races, the 1.5 mile (2.44 km) Puerto Madero circuit with its rich mix of corners, chicanes and both high and low speed turns, is equally popular with drivers and the racing fans alike. And it might just prove too tempting for a young, female Japanese guitarist... GREAT SCOTLAND YARD HOTEL Great Scotland Yard is a classic London landmark. Home of the Metropolitan Police in Victorian times, detectives based here investigated career criminals like Jack the Ripper. Now, following more than 6 million of investment, it will take on a new role as a luxury hotel, built in the style of the Belle Époque. With 236 rooms, the most expensive of which will set you back ,000 for a single night’s stay, the resort will offer a true London vibe and ensure your visit to the city is steeped deep in Dickensian history. Ever wanted a vacation in the heart of Sherlock Holmes’ old stomping ground? Now you can. PHOTOGRAPHY: COLIN ANDERSON/GALLERY STOCK, JAGUAR PR, MAURITIUS IMAGES THEJAGUAR 9
