The Jaguar F-Pace just debuted and it has already set a Guinness World Record.

The British automaker wanted to prove that its F-Pace is one of the most dynamic, exciting crossovers available by defying gravity with a Guinness World Record 360-degree loop. Driven by expert British stunt driver Terry Grant, the F-Pace rocketed through a specially-built structure to complete the record loop. Jaguar also used the special event to signal the official opening of order books worldwide for its newest model.

The Jaguar F-Pace will celebrate its arrival with a First Edition model that will be limited in the first year of production only. It will come exclusively with either the 380-horsepower supercharged V6 engine or the 300-hp V6 diesel and is distinguished by two unique metallic paint shades: Caesium Blue and Halcyon Gold. Customers can also choose from Rhodium Silver or Ultimate Black, while other highlights to the model include 22-inch Double Helix 15-spoke wheels with a grey finish and contrast inserts, Adaptive Dynamics, full-LED headlights, gloss black fender vents and a sliding panoramic roof.

The inside of the F-Pace First Edition will be outfitted with Windsor soft-grain leather in Light Oyster with twin-needle stitching and an embossed houndstooth pattern inspired by the C-X75’s award-winning interior.

“The Jaguar F-PACE is an SUV with the soul of a sports car,” said Ian Callum, director of design for Jaguar. “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.”
