    Jaguar unveils new E-Pace, sets Guinness World Record

    LONDON — It’s not often that Guinness World Records are set during the launch of a new car, but moments after the new Jaguar E-Pace was unveiled in London on Thursday (July 13), it leapt into the Guinness World Records by making a 15.3m-long jump, complete with a 270-degree “barrel roll”.

    Behind the wheel was stunt driver Terry Grant, who has completed stunts on many film sets and holds an impressive 21 world records.

    “As far as I am aware no production car has ever cleanly completed a bona-fide barrel roll and therefore it has always been an ambition of mine to perform one ever since I was a boy,” said Grant, who also drove the Jaguar F-Pace in a record-breaking loop-the-loop in 2015.

    Not surprisingly, the barrel roll is not one to be tried at home: Grant did months of testing and analysis to fine-tune the stunt, including getting the correct speed and ramps.

    The Jaguar E-Pace is a five-seat, compact SUV that the automaker said “packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a spacious, practical and connected all-wheel-drive vehicle”.

    While very cool, not sure what this tells me about the vehicle's capabilities.

    I'm disappointed they've put it on the old Ford EUCD derived LR-MS steel platform - that now gives JLR 3 models (Discovery Sport, Evoque and E-Pace) on an out of date platform that's just as heavy as the iQ[Al] used by Discovery, Range Rover Sport and F-Pace.

    Its a small company without the resources of the big boys. Something has to give.

    Given the number of all-new platforms, all-new engines and all-new models they developed under Tata - they're ahead of the big boys!

    That was pretty awesome. I'm with BlackGTP in that it doesn't say much, other than they had a pretty good driver in it I guess.

    Tata is a small company. The entire Tata group has an annual revenue of about 100 billion dollars , Ford did 151 billion for 2016.

    If you take the Tata motors group, you dind that they are eventually going to find themselves where Mitsubishi motors found itself.
    Too many industries and no real direction, when **** starts asking for Capital, with over 30 pulicly listed entities, its going to be difficult to justify giving money to a high capital low margin business like automotive assembly.

    Re: Jaguar unveils new E-Pace, sets Guinness World Record

    The E-Pace is another winner for JLR. They should be able to shift 75K of these WW a year. Given that it is only the size of a Q3, they did a fantastic job on the styling. Cadillac XT4 needs to be at least as good as this Jag. Next up for JLR is the I-Pace, and for 2018 the reveals of the Evoque 2 and probably the new Defender. JLR is definitely on the move.
