CONCEPT ZERO ZERO COMPROMISE The most beautiful car ever remade On July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan took the stage at the Newport Folk Festival. Instead of his usual acoustic guitar, he shocked the audience by carrying a Fender Stratocaster for the first time. A global icon had gone electric. It’s for this very reason that the Jaguar Classic team dubbed the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero ‘Project Dylan’ during its development. The incredible creation is based on a 1968 Series 1.5 model of the iconic E-Type Roadster and is almost completely original in specification, with one major but fundamental difference: In place of the old XK six-cylinder engine is a 220 kW electric powertrain. The E-Type Concept Zero drives, handles, rides and brakes like an original E-Type. In fact, at around 88 lbs lighter, the new incarnation is actually quicker, capable of 0-60 mph in only 5.5 seconds * . The unique combination of the renowned E-Type experience with electric propulsion creates a breathtaking, zero-emission driving sensation. “Our aim with Concept Zero is to give Classic Jaguar vehicles a sustainable future in changing environmental and economic conditions,” explains Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic. By integrating it into the existing E-Type structure, the new electric powertrain, which uses some technology from the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, could be used to transform any XK-engine Jaguar, spanning a range of models from 1948 to 1992. And because of its seamless integration, a conventional internal combustion engine could be reinstalled at any point. The E-Type was once famously described by Enzo Ferrari as “the most beautiful car ever made.” With Concept Zero, Jaguar Classic has undoubtedly created the most beautiful electric car ever made.
