September 15, 2015 – Jaguar’s first family sports car has defied gravity by performing a record-breaking 360 degree loop, one day ahead of its global motor show debut in Frankfurt.

The all-new Jaguar F-PACE was driven with daring precision by expert British stunt driver Terry Grant. The F-PACE sped through the specially built structure, using its sports car derived technology and world-class collection of safety features to complete the largest ever loop-the-loop and officially signal the opening of order books worldwide.

The extraordinary feat, showcased the powerful design of the lightweight F-PACE and its ability to combine agility with sports car speed and performance.

Pro Driver Terry Grant undertook two months of intense physical and dietary training to ensure his body was prepared for the 6.5 G-Force, which is greater than the forces experienced by space shuttle pilots.

Months of planning went in to ensuring that both car and driver could complete this never before done challenge. Precise physics, angles, speeds and dimensions were considered by a team of experts including structural engineers, mathematicians and safety experts.

First Edition: Concept car design for the real world

To celebrate the launch of the all-new F-PACE, a special model called the First Edition will be available in strictly limited numbers and in the first year of production only. Powered exclusively by the 380PS supercharged V6 petrol and 300PS V6 diesel engines, the First Edition is distinguished by two unique metallic paint colours – Caesium Blue and Halcyon Gold; clear references to the breakthrough C-X17 concepts unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt and Guangzhou Motor Shows. Customers can also choose from Rhodium Silver and Ultimate Black. Further highlights include 22-inch Double Helix 15-spoke wheels with Grey finish and contrast inserts, Adaptive Dynamics, full-LED headlights, Gloss Black fender vents and a sliding panoramic roof.

Inside, the Windsor soft-grain leather seats in Light Oyster feature twin-needle stitching and an embossed houndstooth pattern influenced by the C-X17’s award-winning interior. The traditional Jaguar craftsmanship blends seamlessly with the configurable 10-colour ambient lighting, state-of-the-art InControl Touch Pro infotainment system and the 12.3-inch HD virtual instrument cluster.

The all-new F-PACE is manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s UK Solihull Plant alongside the Jaguar XE sports saloon.
