Loop The Loop Record

Jaguar F-PACE de­fies grav­ity once more

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

On 17 March 2017, for a tourist walk­ing around Shang­hai, China may have come across a rare sight. English stunt driver, Terry Grant, was at­tempt­ing to break the Guin­ness World Record of a loop stunt and he suc­cess­fully com­pleted it with the all-new Jaguar F-PACE. The ve­hi­cle show­cased its all­rounded per­for­mance with its light­weight design, agility and sports car speed from the brand's first SUV. Both the F-PACE and Grant had to with­stand a 6.5 g-force to nav­i­gate the 360-de­gree, six-storey loop with a width of only 13 ft.

“The Jaguar F-PACE is an SUV with the soul of a sports car,” said Ian Cal­lum, di­rec­tor of design for Jaguar. “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.”

Be­fore the main loop stunt, Grant also went up against Aarif lee, Hong Kong ac­tor and singer, in a se­ries of spe­cial driv­ing chal­lenges. The win­ner of 3 F-PACE mis­sions would then get to ride the loop at the Shang­hai Bund.
