Was The Jaguar E Type Concept Zero The Best Car For Prince Harry's Reception?
A classic car with a modern twist!
By Phil Bradley
Like it or hate it, unless you were living under a rock, it would be pretty hard not to hear about the Royal wedding on Saturday. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose to drive a Jaguar E Type Concept Zero on the short journey from Windsor Castle to their Wedding reception at Frogmore House.
The Concept Zero is an electric version of the 1968 classic E Type Jaguar, which produces no emissions. The 220KW motor takes the car to 60MPH in just 5.5 seconds, and came with a bespoke number plate. The E Type was dubbed the most beautiful car in the World by Enzo Ferrari, and Jaguar took the beauty of the E Type and brought it up to speed with modern times by making the vehicle electric. It's not something anyone could buy though, as the Concept Zero costs a whopping £350,000!
