The newly married Duke & Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry traveled from Windsor Castle to Frogmore House in a silver-blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero.

It was originally manufactured in 1968 but has since been converted to electric.




From Autoblog:
"Jaguar left as much of the original 1968 Series 1.5 E-Type in tact as possible while replacing the original inline-six engine with an electric motor and battery pack. Enough power is sent to the rear wheels to push this feline from 0-62 in just 5.5 seconds. That means it's quicker now than it was when new and chugging on gasoline."

Yes that was a nice little touch.

Jaguar could have capitalised by having an ipace there instead, but perhaps the e-type was more suited to the occasion.
