Jaguar Land Rover has planned a special presentation of the new XF just for the NY Auto show, with the world’s first high-wire water crossing Jaguar has teamed up with expert British stuntman Jim Dowdell, veteran of dramatic action stunts in movies including Bond, Bourne Identity and Indiana Jones, to perform the high-wire water crossing feat.
The dramatic drive, across two 34mm-diameter wires suspended high above water, will highlight the lightweight and agile credentials of the new XF.
XF was first launched in 2007 and is Jaguar’s biggest selling and most awarded car in its current product range. The next generation XF is completely new from the ground up and will be the second Jaguar variant to use the brand’s advanced aluminium-intensive architecture. The all-new XF will set new business segment benchmarks for weight and efficiency, resulting in class leading fuel economy figures of over 70 mpg.
Ian Callum, Jaguar’s Director of Design, said: “I believe the all-new XF will be the best looking car in its class. Elegant, handsome and with proportions that imbue a great sense of integrity, the all-new XF will be true to the strong tradition of sporting Jaguar saloons while being completely of its time.”
The all-new XF will make its global motor show debut in New York on 1 April when the full range and technical details underlining its class-leading credentials will be released, in addition to further images and film content.
