What makes something a classic? Could it be a historic moment that is remembered by all and called a “Classic”? Or something that is considered revolutionary years ago and obsolete now, but called a “Classic” because of its influence?
For Baracuta and Jaguar, it is a combination of both old and new school working together in perfect harmony to create something that is truly a “Classic”. And with the recent global release of the brand-new Jaguar E-Pace SUV, Baracuta has invited a bunch of people to take a road trip of a lifetime with a modern refresh of their bestselling and iconic G9 Harrington Jacket in this trip of a lifetime, The Next Classic Guide.
The Jaguar E-Pace is Jaguar’s second successful attempt at capitalizing the SUV market with their smaller version of the F-Pace. Boasting a top speed of 250 km/h made possible with a turbocharged 1.5L petrol engine. The permanent all-wheel-drive transmission also keeps the car planted and stable on the road when you are cutting through the highway at top speeds and carving canyons around the twisting mountain roads.
The SUV is also fully loaded with cutting edge features that is designed to work seamlessly with the people living today and tomorrow. With a number of dials and screens to give you the most important information you need to know, and safety features to make sure that your trip on the road is one that is free of accidents.
On the other hand, Baracuta’s old-school side is given a facelift to fit in with the modern trends of today. Their iconic G9 Harrington Jacket is given a special design done both in house, by Jaguar designers and other customers worldwide to give them a cutting edge and unique aesthetic.
No matter our interpretation of what the term “Classic”. One thing that remains constant is that it remains recognizable and influential for years to come. Baracuta and Jaguar’s attempt at defining classic is definitely one of the more unique and groundbreaking interpretations with The Next Classic Guide.
