UNIQUE I-PACE CLAY MODEL FOR SCOTLAND’S FIRST DESIGN MUSEUM

I-PACE CLAY MODEL

JAGUAR UNVEILS UNIQUE I-PACE CLAY MODEL FOR SCOTLAND’S FIRST DESIGN MUSEUM

A bespoke full-size clay model of the Jaguar I-PACE, created by the brand’s world-renowned designer Ian Callum, is to take centre stage at Scotland’s first dedicated design museum. 

The I-PACE exhibit will be unveiled on 15 September at the grand opening of the new V&A Design Museum in Dundee, which highlights the global achievements of Scottish designers past and present.The clay model shows the painstaking and elaborate design process behind the firm’s first all-electric vehicle as well as the steps followed to create all new Jaguars. 

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: 

“Automotive design is hugely complex. Although much of the design is done digitally, clay models are still important – they are our first chance to see the car in reality. As a child l was inspired to become a car designer at Jaguar and have been lucky enough to live out that dream. 

“Scotland has a long history of design excellence and the V&A Dundee is a fantastic opportunity to showcase this on a global stage. It has been an honour as a Scot to be involved with the opening of the new museum, and I hope our I-PACE exhibit can help inspire the next generation of design talent.” 

Fifty years after writing letters, as a schoolboy, to Jaguar asking for help to become a car designer, Ian Callum has become world-renowned. Born in Dumfries, he has transformed Jaguar since becoming Director of Design in 1999. All of the current Jaguar line-up – XE, XF, XJ, E-PACE, F-PACE, I-PACE and the F-TYPE sports car – have been designed under Ian’s tenure. They have won numerous global design awards. 

Nothing else on the road looks or drives like the Jaguar I-PACE. It is designed and engineered to take full advantage of its smart electric powertrain and maximise the potential of the packaging benefits it brings. With two Jaguar-designed electric motors placed at each axle, producing a combined output of 294kW and 696Nm, I-PACE delivers all-wheel-drive sports car performance with 100km/h taking just 4.8 seconds. 

Dundee is a fitting location to display the all-electric I-PACE: as Scotland’s only Go Ultra Low City, it has one of the highest number of charging points in the UK. 

The new museum will bring touring exhibitions from the V&A and other international museums to Scotland, as well as curating its own exhibitions in future years. V&A Dundee will have an international outlook: investigating the global importance of design, commissioning new work and contributing to public understanding of the role of design in everyone’s lives. 

V&A Dundee will also present the largely untold story of Scotland’s outstanding design achievements, bringing together in one place the world-renowned V&A collections with loans from other collections in Scotland and beyond to allow all to understand and be inspired by this rich design heritage.
