Jaguar Racing never rests on its laurels. Shortly after unveiling the I-Pace's production version, it recently debuted its all-electric race car prototype to the automotive world.

At its global launch, founder and CEO of Formula E Alejandro Agag drove the I-PACE eTROPHY race car around Berlin’s Tempelhof Circuit to showcase its capabilities. However, the real deal is yet to unfold.

Reports say that up to 20 of these I-PACE eTROPHY race cars will ride later in the year on the roads of Hong Kong, Rome, Paris and New York on Jaguar's electric racing championship. As per the Chairman of Jaguar Racing Gerd Mäuser, the 20 cars would feature the same technology, so the drivers would be extremely important.

Agag describes the car as a production road vehicle with the performance of a race car, noting that it is critical for the eTROPHY to prove that the technology you can drive on the road is also capable on the racetrack.

The newly unveiled Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will be the Formula E Series' official support series in 2018/19. The car provides an ‘Arrive and Drive’ package for the drivers on the grid. This includes global logistics for vehicles, equipment and spare parts, as well as professional technical support from race car preparation to data engineering. Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) will design, engineer and build all the vehicles.
