What a way to make your world debut.
In an amazing gravity- defying stunt, Jaguar’s all new F-PACE SUV earned a place in history by performing a record-breaking 360 degree loop around a 19.08 metre tall structure – the largest ever loop the loop and a Guinness World Record.
A day ahead of the new Jag’s global motor show debut in Frankfurt last week a Jaguar team gathered at Niederrad Racecourse for the spectacular event which had been months in the planning to ensure that both car and driver could complete the world record-breaking challenge.
Precise physics, angles, speeds and dimensions were considered by a team of experts including structural engineers, mathematicians and safety experts.
At the wheel of the new F- PACE was legendary British stunt driver Terry Grant who undertook two months of intense physical and dietary training to ensure his body was prepared for the 6.5 G-Force which was generated during the stunt – greater than the forces experienced by space shuttle pilots.
After his daring, stomach churning drive Grant said: “Driving the world’s largest loop tonight was a very proud moment in my career.
“I am delighted to bring the Guinness World Record back to the UK and help Jaguar run rings around their competitors ahead of the motor show.”
When the F-PACE was unveiled at the Frankfurt show, Jaguar announced that it will be priced from £34,170 and will be available in three grades - Prestige, R-Sport,
