Frankfurt Auto Show Proves How Close We Are To An Electric, Autonomous Driving World

Jaguar says it's planning a one-make race series for the forthcoming all-electric I-Pace, and to prove the point it showed a concept of what the race car would look like on its Frankfurt show stand. Except the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy isn't exactly a concept. Keen-eyed showgoers comparing it with the I-Pace concept will notice the race car has different exterior mirrors, different side windows, and slightly different styling around the rear hatch. They'd also notice the creases in the bodywork aren't quite as sharp as those on the white concept and that a pair of wipers are nestled at the base of the windshield. Yep, hiding in plain sight on the Jaguar stand is the production version of the swoopy I-Pace. Strip away the rear wing, the side skirts, the race-face front fascia, and the racy wheels and tires, and you'll see exactly what the twin-motor I-Pace with around 400 hp and an anticipated EPA-rated range of about 220 miles will look like when it launches in the second half of 2018. —Angus MacKenzie
