The Jaguar F-Pace is a 1,665-kilogram machine that was made to go around a 19-meter high vertical loop. Now you don’t get to see that every day, but it is certainly a feat worthy to behold. The accomplishment was made possible with the car’s specs and with the great driving skills of stunt driver Terry Grant. When the car approached the loop, it was at a speed of 50-miles-per-hour. The vehicle even slowed down to a nerve-wracking 15-miles-per-hour as it approached its upside-down point. While in the driver seat, Grant would have felt over 6.5Gs of force. For reference purposes, that number is twice the force that astronauts feel whenever they do takeoffs or do atmospheric reentry.
Jaguar Still Shows the World That They Are Still at the Top of Their Game With the Jaguar F-Pace
The British Luxury car company proves that they can still beat its competitors with the amazing power of their Jaguar F-Pace. So what’s their answer as to how would they promote their new car? Easy; have a driver make it do incredible stunts. The first wave of the F-Pace SUV will arrive in showrooms come April 2016. Customers can choose between a 2-wheel drive and a 4-wheel drive variant. They can also choose between petrol, diesel, manual, and automatic models. The SUV was the product of 4 years of careful research and development by the car company as what Ian Callum, Jaguar’s chief designer, had said. He also stated that they have never tried anything like this before. After all, who would drive their car across a 19-meter high vertical loop for advertisement and marketing’s sake, right? Well, Jaguar did. Callum also said that the design of their new car had somehow deviated from their usual car look of being low, long, and sleek.
The company is not the only one who notices the change in their design but their loyal fans and customers as well. Hence, Jaguar has seen the status quo of what people want these days. The chief designed said that they hope to produce a sportier version of their SUV soon. When one looks at the front of the Jaguar F-Pace, it certainly screams Jaguar. The headlights are unmistakably like that of the new XE and XF. The gaping grille is also very similar to the company’s older car models. While it does look like it can complete a very high vertical loop, the company says that their new SUV is not made for off-road driving.
