England - The new Jaguar E-Pace, the newest member of Jaguar’s SUV family, has set an official Guinness World Record during its world premiere at the ExCeL show in London, England.

The compact performance SUV leapt into the record books with a 15.3 metre-long jump complete with a 270-degree corkscrew-like 'barrel roll'.

Stunt driver Terry Grant said: "As far as I am aware no production car has ever cleanly completed a bona-fide barrel roll and therefore it has always been an ambition of mine to perform one ever since I was a boy. After driving the Jaguar F-E-Pace in the record-breaking loop-the-loop, it has been amazing to help launch the next chapter of the Pace family in an even more dramatic dynamic feat."
