In an exhilarating showcase of the all-new F-PACE, Jaguar’s first family sports car has defied gravity at its world debut, performing a record-breaking loop-the-loop at the 66thFrankfurt Motor Show.
Jaguar’s first crossover, described as the world’s most practical sports car, was driven by legendary British stunt driver Terry Grant in a 360 degree loop with courageous precision, entering the record books in style. You can watch F-PACE break the world record right here.
Two months of intense physical and dietary training for Grant meant his body could withstand severe G-Force of 6.5 in the loop at Frankfurt’s Niederrad Racecourse. The specially built structure standing at 19.08m tall took months of planning, with a team of structural engineers, safety experts and mathematicians working to calculate precise physics, angles, speeds and dimensions for the challenge.
The extraordinary achievement highlights the perfect balance of speed, performance, agility and lightweight construction of the F-PACE, utilising the vehicle’s technology and world-class safety features to officially announce the arrival of this stunning sports car.
Ian Callum, Director of Design for Jaguar said: ‘The Jaguar F-PACE is an SUV with the soul of a sports car. When we created this car, we thought differently’ we took a Jaguar sports car and made it family-friendly. The F-PACE exudes performance, yet you can fit five people and all their belongings in it. This is a car for people who love driving, who love design and who love technology – this is the ultimate practical sports car.’
