NEW BOND 007 ELEMENTS STARRING JAGUAR AND LAND ROVER OPENS

007 ELEMENTS, an exciting new James Bond experience built inside the summit of the Gaislachkogl mountain in Sölden, Austria, is now open to the public.

The cinematic installation was opened by actress Naomie Harris who plays Moneypenny (Spectre, Skyfall) and Jakob Falkner Managing Director of Bergbahnen Sölden.

Visitors can learn how the thrilling action sequences in Spectre were filmed in Sölden and see interactive displays with Jaguar Land Rover technology. The iconic Land Rover Defender driven by villain Hinx’s henchmen is situated on the cliff edge and the Range Rover Sport SVR driven by Hinx (Dave Bautista) is also on display.

The latest Jaguar Land Rover technology is on show with features from the all-new electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV and artificial intelligence systems.

Jaguars and Land Rovers have appeared in nine Bond films since 1983, when Roger Moore’s Bond escaped in a Range Rover Classic convertible driven by Bianca (Tina Hudson).

Laura Wood, Head of Brand and Partnerships at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are very excited to reach the 35th anniversary of the collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover and the Bond franchise.

“007 ELEMENTS showcases the long-standing unique partnership which is still demonstrated today, with more than 70 Jaguar Land Rover vehicles used in the most recent film, Spectre.”

At more than 3,000m above sea level, 007 ELEMENTS is the highest experience of its kind taking visitors on a journey through nine galleries and a plaza with stunning Alpine views. The dramatic spaces complete with an immersive soundscape showcase the fundamental elements that define the James Bond films – placing visitors inside the world of 007 and revealing how that world is made.

EON Productions’ Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said: “We are truly proud to be in partnership with Jakob Falkner and launching our latest experience, 007 ELEMENTS, on the very mountaintop in Sölden where we filmed Spectre. Architect Johann Obermoser, our Art Director Neal Callow and Tino Schaedler have created a Bondian lair worthy of a Ken Adam set in which visitors immediately become enveloped in the cinematic world of 007.” 

007 ELEMENTS is accessed via the Gaislachkoglbahn Gondola in the resort village of Sölden. Open daily from 09:00 to 15:30, tickets are available online or from the Bergbahnen Sölden ticket offices and cost €22 for adults, €12 for children.

KATHERINE LEGGE RACING I-PACE FOR RAHAL LETTERMAN LANIGAN

Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced today that experienced sports car and open-wheel racing driver Katherine Legge will drive one of the team’s two Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series electric racecars during the 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E season. An American-themed livery will be unveiled by RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal, Legge and team officials at the New York E-Prix 2017/2018 season-finale this weekend.

“I am very proud to be driving in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Formula E series for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing,” said Katherine Legge. “I have followed Formula E since its inception and have been very impressed with the growth in the electric car market and electric racing as a whole. I have also wanted to drive for Bobby for the past 10 years or more so this for me is the realization of a dream. Driving for a British brand like Jaguar on a global stage and ‘racing to innovate’ sounds like the best kind of challenge to me. I’m excited!”

RLL first announced participation in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series, the world’s first production-based electric vehicle race series, in November 2017. The team will announce the second driver prior to their first test session which is expected to take place in September in the UK.

JAGUAR MAKES I-PACE DRIVING EVEN EASIER

Jaguar has launched an intelligent app to help drivers experience life with its all-electric I-PACE before even getting behind the wheel.

The Go I-PACE app captures journey data to calculate potential cost savings, show how much battery would be used per trip and tell users how many charges they would need in a week if they were driving the I-PACE.

As it builds a unique picture of a vehicle’s use, the app will even show how many journeys, if any, would have needed a stop to charge the EV’s advanced Lithium-ion battery. Journeys over 50 miles represent only two per cent of all UK trips*. I-PACE, which has a maximum range of 298 miles (WLTP), could complete 98 per cent of these using just a fraction of a single charge.

When opening the app, users can enter the real-world fuel economy of their existing vehicle to calculate the cost savings switching to the I-PACE would deliver. Once enough journeys have been logged, the app will estimate the range drivers can expect to achieve from a full charge. An interactive map allows users to search for the nearest charging points along a chosen route or within a local area.

Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar I-PACE said:  “Making the switch to EV ownership is a big decision. We’re confident anyone who experiences the I-PACE will relish its engaging driving dynamics, performance, practicality and comfort. What a test drive doesn’t show is the lower running costs and convenience of living with our electric performance SUV on a daily basis. The Go I-PACE app is designed to help potential customers make an informed decision.”

Compatible with Apple operating systems and coming soon for Android, the Go I-PACEapp runs in the background and uses the device’s location services to track individual journeys. It can also distinguish between different modes of transport to make sure it collects accurate data, even prompting users to confirm that individual trips were made by car for unusual routes – for instance on journeys made by cycling rather than behind the wheel.

Jaguar has teamed up with presenter and independent EV expert Robert Llewelyn to demonstrate the Go I-PACE app: https://youtu.be/KZwyNDcSfOI

Robert Llewelyn, EV expert and Fully Charged Show Creator, said:  “It can be hard for drivers to understand how an EV would fit into their day-to-day lives. The Go I-PACE app makes this possible by providing personalised information about how the Jaguar I-PACE could work for them based on real-world data. I’ve no doubt the app will surprise many users with the scale of the potential cost savings and by revealing how little change to their driving habits I-PACE ownership would actually make.”

During Robert’s week he drove 364 miles over 19 journeys, costing £66 in petrol. The same mileage in the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE would have cost just £24, translating to a potential average annual saving of over £1,100 based on 10,000 miles. Calculations are based on accredited data sources, using national monthly electricity, petrol and diesel costs from market-appropriate government information.

The Jaguar I-PACE can achieve a 0-80 per cent charge in 85 minutes (50kW DC rapid) and can achieve the same level in just over 10 hours using a residential AC wall box (7kW), ideal for overnight charging at home. When plugged in, owners can even choose the time at which their vehicle begins charging, to take advantage of cheaper energy tariffs.

A suite of smart range-optimising technologies includes a battery pre-conditioning system that, when plugged in, will automatically raise or lower the temperature of the battery to maximise range ahead of driving away.

Owners can also take advantage of software updates that ensure I-PACE is always running the latest version.

BOB JANE’S LIGHTWEIGHT E-TYPE

This evocative shot, taken at the Easter meeting at Bathurst in 1965, shows the 10th of 12 Lightweight E-Types built coming down through the treacherous and infamous ‘Dipper’ at the top of the ‘Mountain’.

Jane beat arch rival Leo Geoghegan (following here) in a Lotus Elan in two races, the cars reaching 148 and 142 mph respectively coming down Con Rod Straight.

Jane raced the car in England, and at its first race (which was in Australia) he won the Australian GT Championship (November, 1963).

He sold the Lightweight at auction in 1980 for AUD$80,000.  Its most recent sale saw it bring close to AUD$9,000,000.
