Jaguar’s new E-PACE performance SUV plays in the city in a series of ‘warped reality’ pictures by digital artist Chris Labrooy. The artwork celebrates the North American launch of Jaguar’s new compact performance SUV. Inspired by the car’s playful character and its record-breaking barrel-roll reveal, Labrooy puts the E-PACE into a series of unlikely locations and scenarios. The ‘Transposition’ series of images revealed today features Detroit, famed for its automotive heritage and the location of the E-PACE’s US debut today.
Jaguar has released a short behind-the-scenes documentary offering viewers the chance to see how its engineers brought a perilous barrel roll stunt from concept to reality. The stunt, which was six months in the making, was over in just 1.5 seconds when the E-PACE was revealed to the world at London’s ExCeL on Thursday 13th July. Jaguar leapt into GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ history with its new performance SUV for the furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle. Over a million people* watched the stunt within the first week online.
The Jaguar E-PACE is a five-seat compact SUV that packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a practical and connected all-wheel-drive vehicle. The newest member of the Jaguar family of SUVs, the E-PACE follows the brand’s first all-electric SUV, the I-PACE Concept, and the World Car of the Year-winning F-PACE performance SUV.
The New Jaguar E-PACE has set an official Guinness World Records™ title during its world premiere in London. Leaping into the record books, Jaguar’s compact performance SUV achieved an epic 15.3 metre-long jump, complete with a 270-degree corkscrew-like barrel roll. Behind the wheel was legendary British stunt driver Terry Grant. One of the best things about watching this barrel roll, other than the sheer marvel of such a stunt, is that you get a full 360-degree view of the E-PACE. Let’s face it, it is hard to hide much when you soft white (or aluminum) underbelly is exposed for all the world to see.
From the freezing Arctic Circle to the dust and heat of Dubai, the Jaguar E-PACE has been subjected to a diverse testing programs, ensuring it is not only a driver’s car but a dynamic and entertaining performance SUV too. Jaguar unleashed hell* and high water** to ensure that E-PACE worked on all surfaces and in all weathers. More than 150 prototypes were built during a grueling 25-month test program which took place across four continents to ensure not only extreme durability but that the vehicle lives up to the Art of Performance philosophy.
Jaguar introduces its new compact performance SUV, the Jaguar E-PACE. Joining Jaguar’s PACE family of performance SUVs, the E-PACE follows on from the successful F-PACE, which helped boost Jaguar’s sales by 83 per cent last year, and the all-electric I-PACE Concept which will go into production in 2018.
