Jaguar joined forces with stunt driver Terry Grant, who piloted the exact same example last year straight into the Guinness World Record for the biggest loop-a-loop, at the vehicle's launch.

The tipping over and the smoke seem to have been two separate incidents on different days.

There's a lot of 3M advertising and I assume £M product on the driver's side of the car in the 'smoking' incident video. So that looks like a cover up for the damage when the car fell onto the driver's side.

For the second incident I saw some earlier video footage on some repeat video showing on the Goodwood FOS live feed. The car went up the ramp to get on two wheels. Then the passenger climbed out of car, did the acrobatics and climbed back in. The car then bumped down hard on four wheels and white steam/smoke started coming out from the side of the car. It would be interesting to know what caused the steam/smoke.

Good try Jaguar - a brilliant publicity stunt. Shame it ended badly on two occasions. Terry Grant is a fab stunt driver and he must be gutted things didn't go to plan.

Also noticed that on some shots the cars seems to be on 22" helix standard for FE , but on others it is shown as on 19" bionics standard on R sport. :eek: ...so question is which ones are better for handling in this particular situation :? ... Best ask the stunt driver this one :lol: :lol:
