Jaguar has teamed up with expert British stuntman Jim Dowdall, veteran of dramatic action stunts in movies including Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones, to perform a world’s first high-wire water crossing in the all-new Jaguar XF.

The dramatic drive, across two 1.3in (34mm)-diameter wires suspended high above water will highlight the lightweight and agile credentials of the new Jaguar XF and will be streamed globally on at 3:00PM EST (19:00 GMT) on 24 March 2015.

XF was first launched in the UK in 2007 and in North America in 2008 , and is Jaguar’s biggest selling and most awarded car. The next generation XF is completely new from the ground up and will be the second Jaguar model to use the brand’s advanced aluminium-intensive architecture. The all-new XF will set new business segment benchmarks for weight and efficiency, resulting in class leading fuel economy figures of over 70mpg.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, “I believe the all-new Jaguar XF will be the best looking car in its class. Elegant, handsome and with proportions that imbue a great sense of integrity – the all-new XF will be true to the strong tradition of sporting Jaguar sedans while being completely of its time.”

The sophisticated all-new XF, on sale in the fall of 2015, will offer exceptional levels of technology, refinement, luxury and comfort. It will be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich plan

The all-new XF will make its global motor show debut at the New York Auto Show on April 1 when the full range and technical details will be released in addition to further images/films.
