What is the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drove following the Royal Wedding?
PRINCE Harry drove his new bride Meghan Markle away in an iconic Jaguar E-Type, here's all the info on the British sports car.
The car was built between 1961 and 1975 with Enzo Ferrari calling it "the most beautiful car ever made".
What is the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drove off in a 1968 silver blue E-Type although the Concept Zero version is an adapted version to make it electric, which Jaguar Land Rover converted last year.
The couple used it to get to Frogmore House for the after-party.
Prince William and Kate Middleton left Buckingham Palace after their wedding in 2011 in a vintage Aston Martin DB6.
Last year Pippa Middleton and hubby James Matthews sped off in Britain's oldest surviving Jaguar E-Type following their wedding ceremony at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berks.
What's the performance?
It is still a high performance sports car, capable of doing 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds, one second faster than an original Series 1 version.
The car the newly married couple rode in had a special number plate E190518 – the date of their marriage.
Out went the car's six-cylinder XK engine and gearbox and replaced with a 220kw battery and motor, with a reduction gearbox.
The old analogue dials have been removed and replaced with digital ones.
Jaguar has limited the car's top speed to 100mph.
