Jaguar’s first family suv has defied gravity by performing a record-breaking 360 degree loop, one day prior to its
global motor show debut in Frankfurt, Germany, last week.
The all-new Jaguar F-PACE, the world’s most practical sports car, 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 record loop.
Ian Callum, Director of Design for Jaguar said: “The Jaguar F-PACE is an SUV with the soul of a sports car. 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.”
The extraordinary feat, showcased the powerful design of the lightweight F-PACE and its ability to combine agility with
sports car speed and performance.
Fiona Pargeter, Global PR Communications Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The F-PACE is a family car that is
fast, fun and full of charisma, so completing the world’s largest loop the loop was the perfect reveal moment. The F-PACE
is packed full of innovative technology and features the world’s most-advanced in-car entertainment system, matched with
super-fast wifi connectivity. Customers are going to go loopy for the Jaguar F-PACE.”
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.

proud moment in my career. The F-PACE’s supreme performance credentials and rigid lightweight structure gave me complete
confidence that I had the strength and driving agility needed. 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 tomorrow.”
