eTrophy car spoiler

Does anyone have a link where I can buy the spoiler that's on the I-Pace eTrophy car, or something similar that would fit? I've never been a fan of giant, rear-wing spoilers, but I think it adds a whole new dimension to this car.

I should clarify that I've been searching for a while now and can't find anything that would fit. Something like this would be great but the dimensions of the base make it incompatible with the car. There's only about 3 inches of mounting space between the rear window and the rear of the car at that width. None of the "universal" rear wings that I've found would work. It's possible that a custom solution is the only option.

I would contact Jaguar directly, but I wouldn't be too hopeful. It's likely that those wings were a limited run made specifically for the E-Trophy promotion. The molds may still exist, but extra wings may be difficult if not impossible to come by.

I'm not sure Jaguar SVT would actually build the cars. I think I read they do not, they just spec it, and ship it to a race outfitter. In production racing, they normally ship a new car to a builder, they take it all apart, install the rollcage and any other welded structures, then put it back together with race components where necessary. I know the front end is not OEM but it still shares a lot of parts with the OEM car.
Some parts are fabricated and just have the 'look' of the factory car like the front fenders. So the wing they use might not fit, depending on how it attaches.

Some cars are highly misleading. Like the C5.R+ Corvette endurance racers. They share virtually no parts with the OEM car. The part LOOK a lot alike, but everything has been optimized for maximum performance. If making a new engine block saves 4 lbs, they do it even though a stock block would work.

Found who the builder is:

"Jaguar partnered has partnered with fellow British firm M-Sport to build and support the race cars. Jack Lambert from Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations is the lead development engineer on the e-Trophy car and travels with the M-Sport crew to all of the races."

Search for "swan neck spoiler" or wing. A wing like that is going to need a strong attachment point, much stronger than just the trunk metal. It looks like they added some bracing into an already fully caged car.

Not the spoiler but here are some close up shots of one of the e-trophy cars . I got invited to the NY Jaquar event to meet the drivers and the party was great.
