WATCH: The E-Pace barrel rolls on debut

The Jaguar E-Pace breaks world record by literally launching its new small SUV...into a barrel roll.

As was reported in AutoExpress on Friday, Jaguar have broken the Guinness World Record by being the first production car to ever complete a bona-fide barrel roll. The stunt was performed as part of the much anticipated Jaguar E-Pace launch that has been teasing us over the last few months.

Seen above, the E-Pace, driven by stunt driver Terry Grant, jumps 15,3m and spins 270 degrees. Grant experienced 5.5 Gs performing the spin that was worth every bit of the discomfort:

"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."

Watch the jump below. Pretty bad ass! Well played Jag. And, great looking car by the way. We suppose that's worth mentioning too.
