Jaguar Land Rover at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017
● Jaguar XE SV Project 8 set for global debut
● New Jaguar XJ derivative completing final testing on the Goodwood hill
● First dynamic appearance of the new Range Rover Velar
● ‘Jaguar Electrifies’ with its first dedicated all-electric on-stand area featuring the I-PACE Concept and I-TYPE Formula E car
Jaguar Land Rover is bringing its latest game changers to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, in the spirit of the event’s theme: ‘Motorsport’s Game Changers’. Making its global debut at the Festival is Jaguar’s ultimate game changer, and the most extreme performance Jaguar ever, the XE SV Project 8. Visitors will be able to see the latest limited-edition sports car on the Jaguar stand and appearing in the Michelin Supercar Paddock.
A prototype of a new Jaguar XJ derivative will be in a special camouflage and completing final tests on the Goodwood hill climb over the course of the weekend. The car will be fully revealed later this summer.
Making its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the newest member of the Range Rover family, the Velar. Designed to fill the white space between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, Velar brings unprecedented glamour to the Range Rover family. When it’s not tackling the Goodwood hill, it will be available for guests to see on the stand.
Ten years on from the introduction of the Jaguar XF nameplate, the all-new XF Sportbrake will be completing its Wimbledon Trophy Tour at Goodwood, arriving with Andy Murray’s Wimbledon Trophy in the boot. Jaguar is the Official Car Partner of The Wimbledon Championships and to celebrate the relationship the new XF Sportbrake was revealed in early June on a replica Centre Court.
Visitors will be treated to an array of interactive experiences on the stand, including updates to the Jaguar Experience track, with the addition of the Jaguar XE S, alongside the usual passenger rides in the crowd-pleasing F-TYPE. Land Rover will also be showcasing the All-New Discovery on the Land Rover Experience Terrapod, a simulated off-road circuit that showcases the Discovery’s unbeatable go-anywhere capability.
The Jaguar stand will also feature a special Jaguar Electrifies area, hosting a static display of the I-TYPE Formula E car and appearances from Panasonic Jaguar Racing drivers, Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll. The stunning I-PACE Concept all-electric SUV is also on show, ahead of its launch as a production model in 2018.
Guests will have the chance to take their place alongside the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing team on their America’s Cup boat in our virtual reality experience, or test your reflexes with the Wimbledon Batak challenge.
The festival will be running from Thursday 29th June until Sunday 2nd July.
Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: "From the new Range Rover Velar to the Panasonic Jaguar Racing I-TYPE, our Goodwood Festival of Speed presence this year is a real testament to the diversity and breadth of talent in the modern Jaguar Land Rover brand. I’m particularly excited to show the world our latest limited edition sports car, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8. Seeing – and hearing – the most powerful production Jaguar ever tackling the hillclimb is going to be a moment to remember."
