Jaguar has just launched their latest E-PACE vehicle in record-breaking style, by achieving a spectacular, daring and gravity-defying Guinness World Records title.
The car manufacturer decided to take on the Furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle – an iconic stunt often seen in action films like James Bond, but extremely difficult to pull off in reality.
The company invited their go-to stunt driver Terry Grant to take on the challenge.
As a multiple record-holder he was the perfect choice for the job.
The potentially dangerous attempt was months in preparation, as a team of experts tested different ramps and perfected the run-up speed.
The attempt took place at the ExCeL in London and saw Terry drive the Jaguar E-PACE up a ramp, travel through the air turning a minimum of 270-degrees, and land safely on the other side.
He achieves a spectacular 15.3 metre-long barrel roll and adjudicator Pravin Patel was able to confirm a new record for the driver.
During the attempt Terry had to endure a powerful G-Force of 5.5.
This is not the first time Jaguar and Terry Grant have hit the headlines for their record-breaking stunts.
In 2015 Jaguar introduced the F-PACE sports car at the Niederrad Racecourse in Germany, by attempting the world’s Largest loop the loop in a car ever.
Terry successfully completed a daunting 19.08 m tall, 360 degree circle.
