Bond and Bourne stuntman Jim Dowdall will drive the new XF across two 34mm-thick wires suspended above water.
Why? To highlight the aluminium-intensive new XF’s light weight, that’s why… oh, and also to create some dramatic debut scenes, no doubt.
The launch special gets under way early this evening: we have a live feed which will begin airing from 19:00 GMT.
Come back then to watch the new second-generation Jaguar XF being revealed – and see the new car in full detail when we bring you the first images.
