2018 Jaguar E-Pace Racing Down The Nurburgring



Still under heavy camouflage, the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace was spotted hooning its way around the Nurburgring. As the F-Pace’s smaller brother, the E-Pace needs to be fine tuned on the quintessential test track before it can compete against the likes of the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.

The crossover may be small, but rumors claim that it is sitting on the same platform found in the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Evoque, meaning it should come with standard FWD and optional AWD.

CarScooops suggests that an entry level E-Pace could be powered by a 161 HP 2.0-liter diesel engine and the higher trims may be equipped with 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol units or 2.0-liter diesels with a few extra ponies. Perhaps we’ll even see a hybrid powertrain in the future. All that power will be sent to the wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Styling wise, we can expect to see it resemble the larger F-Pace that has already proven to be a success for the automaker. Inside, the cabin may be sporting Jaguar’s latest iteration of the Incontrol Touch Pro infotainment system.

Jaguar is expected to debut the E-Pace sometime this summer or later on this year.

I believe the Nurburgring has a minimum track speed of 60 km/h so that could be the speed that the E-Pace was travelling at.

I read 40km/h but I'm not too sure if there are different rules for public use and manufacturer testing purposes?

Here's a video of the Jaguar E-Pace going around the Nürburgring. That tire squealing sounds very fake, or maybe it really was going that fast around the corners.

You are right... it does sound like some sort of sound effect but it is possible. Looking at how much body roll there was, it does seem like a higher rate of speed than I initially thought.

think it was going 40 or 60 km/h in that video? With how much it was tilting in the turns, I thought the inner tires would lift a bit.

I think more than that now, but it looked like the wheels were very close to lifting

For tires to be making that sort of sound it had to be going reasonably fast and I don't think 40-60 would have been it, more like 70-100km/h. For someone who has been on the ring or any track its easy to squeeze in a bit more speed around those turns.

We really can't even tell how sharp of a turn they were taking either. Really hard to decipher anything with that without having any more variables or information.

I'd like to see it take on the Carraciola-Karussell portion of Nordschleife since it has a banked carousel in a portion of the circuit.
