Jaguar I- Pace E Trophy

I don't know if you guys have heard about this race series that will feature 20 I-Pace cars racing across 10 different tracks. These variants were produced by Jaguars in house SVO team, and have seen some awesome styling tweaks and weight reduction. With a max speed of 121mph and a 0-60 sprint in 4.2 seconds, these races should be an interesting watch. These models could end up being the basis for SVO versions of the I-Pace.

Yeah, good look. There are plenty of details online, but I'll just reiterate that it's a modded production car. So, same power plant(s), with upgraded brakes and stripped interior. You can get one for ~$250,000; but apparently it's another ~$450,000 to enter the race series. . . . So, much more economical to simply buy some spare tires and track your production model (and pretend its got a wing and racing stripe). There are also murmurs about about radically different power plants in the future (SVR?).

Brand new article at MotorTrend: https://www.motortrend.com/cars/jagu...ce-car-review/


My conversion from Euros was way off. With entry fee at $530,000, the car must be over $300,000.


Seeing as the motors are the same from production models, we're getting a good deal. Just not sure what we do about mimicking the non-existent race car sound . . .

It will be cool to see some of the livery here on production I-Pace models. Even if Jaguar doesn't offer it, how many of you would consider getting it done from a local vinyl/wrap shop?

Yeah the cost of these variants really reiterates just how much value Jaguar has packaged into the production model. While I don't know how much interest there will be in modifying electric vehicles, I do like the look of the more aggressive front bumper. More vibrant color options would be nice too.

Totally agree. An exterior "race package" would be very cool.

Yes, I think Jaguar was very conservative with the colour options on the I-Pace. I think they are used to more "traditional" customers who are maybe more conservative on colours. My dealer stated that since I had chosen the Caesium blue, my deposit would become non-reimbursable after the "last amendment possible date" on the order. He also said that with a black, white or grey car, the deposit would stay reimbursable until final delivery.

But this being a such innovative car, it has to be more "visible".

This is one reason we're getting the FE, for the red. People really do buy bland colors. Partly that's all automakers offer anymore. Partly that's all lots tend to carry. Mostly people just suck.

I've seen the FE red in London. It sure stands out!
