Jaguar have launched their new E-Pace in London in the most spectacular fashion, with a world record breaking 'barrel roll' stunt.

Priced from £28,500, the new Jaguar E-PACE can now be configured and ordered on the Jaguar website.

Yesterday (13 July 2017), in London, the new SUV set an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title during its world premiere, leaping into the record books with a 15.3 metre-long jump complete with a 270 degree corkscrew.

The record was attempted by stunt driver, Terry Grant. He had this to say: “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. After driving the Jaguar F-PACE in the record-breaking loop-the-loop, it has been amazing to help launch the next chapter of the PACE family in an even more dramatic dynamic feat.”

Here's the footage. Enjoy:
