Manufacturers have flocked to Formula E in recent months, keen to develop and promote their battery-electric powertrain prowess, but Jaguar's underlining its status as an early-adopter (it first entered Formula E in 2016) with the intriguing eTrophy.

Maybe that will be enough to drum up some attention for the I-Pace eTrophy and electric racing in general.

But that's not all; Jaguar has also announced a dedicated racing version of the Jaguar I-Pace, aptly named Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy.

The I-Pace racecars will be built by Jaguar's SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division in Warwickshire UK and of course, be based on the Jaguar I-Pace, which itself will be seen on streets towards the end of 2018.

"We've always said we want to prove our electrification technologies on the track -this is the proof". But we have to admit that I-Pace race vehicle looks pretty dang cool.
