Jaguar Reveals Their 1,020BHP Vision GT Coupe EV

It’s no secret that Jaguar really knows how to make a good looking car. The F-Type is still winning me over every time I drive past one, and the i-Pace could possibly be the best looking EV on the market at the moment. The British company just has a way with lines, mixing soft curves with hard aggressive lines.

I think they may have just outdone themselves this time with the new Vision GT Coupe. Just like the F-Type is has a long bonnet, muscled hips and swooping edges, maximising that pleasing tear drop tail. It really is a looker, and anyone with a few hundred quid will get the chance to drive it as much as they could possibly want… on Grand Turismo.

Unfortunately, this car is only a concept and only drivable through the medium of pixels and a controller. But Jaguar have still delved deep into reality to bring you a realistic specification.

It’s all-electric, producing 1,020bhp from a trio of electric motors giving it the urgency to reach 60mph in just 2 seconds with it carrying on to 200mph. And where it will be silent, Jaguar has given it the soundtrack of a “race-spec 3.8-litre XK”, which “provides a unique layer, manipulated and woven into a futuristic and distinctive electric soundtrack.” Its chassis is made from carbon fibre and aluminium alloys and because of this only weight 1400kg.

Its interior is epically futuristic, with a Halo-like Cortana hologram being emitted on the dash. It’s apparently inspired by an old Le Mans car, but I really can’t see the connection. It’s inside the reality of this breaks down a little. “The augmented reality digital side glass for enhanced vision either side of the car; the glass being able to highlight danger and obstacles, therefore increasing driver perception.” That doesn’t sound real to me, but there have been many cars that have been spawned from a Vision Concept. See the Chiron for example.

The Vision GT Coupe will be available from November 2019. We’re just wondering whether you have to charge it.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
