Jaguar’s upcoming F-PACE is poised to be a power player in the luxury crossover market. To celebrate the 80th birthday of the brand, they chose unveil the F-PACE in a unique way: smashing a Guinness World Record. Not just any record would do, so they chose to build the largest ‘loop the loop’ in automotive history, according to a press release issued today by Jaguar Land Rover.

“The F-PACE is a family car that is fast, fun and full of charisma, so completing the world’s largest loop the loop was the perfect reveal moment,” said Fiona Pargeter, Jaguar Land Rover Global PR Communications Director, in the press release. “The F-PACE is packed full of innovative technology and features the world’s most-advanced in-car entertainment system, matched with super-fast wifi connectivity. Customers are going to go loopy for the Jaguar F-PACE.”

Months of preparation went into building the reinforced loop and in conditioning the driver. Both would need to be capable of 6.5 gs of centripetal downforce through the loop. Obviously, the F-Pace is capable of over six gs of suspension load, but we advise you not to attempt this.

Also included in the release are the details of the First Edition model. This special edition will be built in limited numbers and only available in Caesium Blue and Halcyon Gold. They will arrive fully loaded with LED headlights, 22-inch wheels and a panoramic roof. Windsor leather in Light Oyster adorns the interior, with an embossed houndstooth pattern.
