[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ast night(14th September 2015) marked the beginning of what is expected to gather momentum today and indeed reach a crescendo in few days time, as the likes of Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar Landrover seized attention of the world media with their exclusive offerings.

The all-new Jaguar F-PACE was driven with daring precision by expert British stunt driver Terry Grant. The F-PACE sped through the specially built structure, using its sports car derived technology and world-class collection of safety features to complete the record loop and officially signal the opening of order books worldwide.

Ian Callum, Director of Design for Jaguar said, “The Jaguar F-PACE is an SUV with the soul of a sports car. When we created this car we thought differently; we took a Jaguar sports car and made it family friendly. The F-PACE exudes performance yet you can fit five people and all their belongings in it. This is a car for people who love driving, who love design and who love technology – this is the ultimate practical sports car.”

The extraordinary feat, showcased the powerful design of the lightweight F-PACE and its ability to combine agility with sports car speed and performance.
