The latest issue of The Jaguar magazine 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 by 2020, we explore how pushing boundaries on the 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 center, Peckham offers an unconventional experience of multicultural London, from the wonderfully flavorful 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 shrimp, chicken, mushrooms and more – are dreamy, and the neighborhood 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 a movie. Prior to taking our seats we take in a 360° view of the ever-changing London cityscape. After the film, we drop off the kids at their granddad’s close by, check our own luggage in the spacious trunk 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 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. 26 THEJAGUAR
European interior shown. 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 transportion companion, progress should remain as stylish, practical, swift and connected as before. Plan your own urban escape.

The latest issue features a range of inspiring people: from Luke Jennings, creator of Villanelle, one of the most interesting television characters in recent times, to Marcus Du Sautoy, who ponders whether artificial intelligence is on the brink of becoming creative. Out on the road, we visit the US to explore the foodie heaven of Portland in a Jaguar I-PACE, take a Jaguar XE to the south of France to get a photographer’s viewpoint of the charming town of Arles, and much more.
