Jaguar F-Pace loop-the-loopThe Jaguar F-Pace SUV was revealed in dramatic fashion on the eve of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show – with a Guinness World Record for the largest ever loop-the-loop!

Jaguar’s first-ever SUV, the new F-Pace crossover goes on sale in 2016 priced from £34,710. It’s going head-to-head with the Porsche Macan and Audi Q5, and will also rival the BMW X3.

It’s a crucial car for Jaguar, which the firm will give its public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this week. But, before that, it had a Guinness World Record to claim – for the highest-ever loop-the-loop!

Brit stuntman Terry Grant drove the new F-Pace around the 19-metre high 360-degree loop, experiencing forces of 6.5G in the process – that’s more than space pilots. Jaguar’s been planning the launch stunt for months…

Stunt driver 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 tomorrow.”
