To launch their new car, Jaguar showed it off doing an incredible stunt (last time they launched a car they had it drive a loop-the-loop); this time they've taken inspiration from TMWTGG and done something I've only seen a car being driven by 007 do before (this time with less slide-whistle):

Great find, marktmurphy, thanks for sharing.

It seems the landing was a bit on the rough side there. Otherwise an awesome stunt, congratulations!

Doesn't seem as though he car had the driver symmetrically in the middle like the specially designed AMC Hornet was.  But it's always nice to see real stunts over CGI.

I think there might be a bit of editing trickery though: there's a shot of the car driving off unscathed with its lights on which doesn't quite fit with the shots of it landing, where the headlights appear to go out and the bonnet doesn't look like it fits any more! If you see a red used E-Pace for sale in the London area I'd maybe give it a wide berth...
