While Jaguar was happy to unveil the all-new E-Pace sport-utility with a bit of a splash, we're more concerned about the meat and potatoes of this all-new SUV.

"As far as I am aware no production auto 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", said Grant, who also drove the Jaguar F-Pace in a record-breaking loop-the-loop in 2015.

The E-Pace set the new record of 270-degree corkscrew-like "barrel roll" jump when it covered a distance of 15.3 m / 50 feet.
