What an amazing way to launch a compact Luxury SUV!
During its world premiere, the Jaguar E-PACE leapt into the record books with a 15.3-meter-long, 270-degree ‘barrel roll.’ The famous barrel roll in the James Bond film, The Man With the Golden Gun inspired this stunt.
The Bond-style longest barrel roll was performed by stunt technician Terry Grant at the ExCeL Centre in London in a production vehicle. Terry already holds an impressive 21 Guinness World Record titles to his name.

The E-Pace will be the first Jaguar to be built outside of the UK by contract manufacturer Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.
