Loop The Loop Record
Jaguar F-PACE defies gravity once more
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.
