The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy is a race-spec version race car of the Jaguar I-Pace, developed specifically for the I-PACE eTROPHY racing series. The futuristic electric race car was designed by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations.

Many aerodynamical advancements have been made over the standard I-Pace, such as the addition of a rear wing and a revised exterior, a new front splitter, especially the front fascia and the sides, to create anti-lift and better direct air flow to cool the battery and motors.

Other changes include a lower ride height (by 30 mm), longer length (by 173 mm). slightly longer width (by 6 mm), a weight slash of up to 450 lb, etc. The length of the wheelbase of the I-Pace eTrophy race car is the same as the road car. Power is increased to 436 hp (442 PS), from 395 hp (400 PS) as that of the road car, with a slight increase in torque to 700 Nm (513.4 lb-ft) of torque, from the 696 Nm (513 lb-ft) of the road car.

The last I‑PACE eTROPHY series was won by New Zealander, Simon Evans. The series showcased the award-winning Jaguar I‑PACE in some of the world’s greatest cities and has supported a diverse grid from all around the world along the way.
