2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake teased… at Wimbledon

Jaguar is the major sponsor of the Wimbledon tennis tournament (starting in July) and has teased the 2018 XF Sportbrake on the centre court… literally.

THE 2018 JAGUAR XF SPORTBRAKE has been teased at Wimbledon with the centre court used as a canvas. Ground staff redrew the white lines into the outline of an XF Sportbrake.

Jaguar’s designer, Ian Callum said: “With XF Sportbrake we’ve created a silhouette which sweeps towards the rear, almost into the distance, and really gives the car a sense of speed and sportiness. It will bring new levels of practicality to the range without sacrificing the dynamic design and agile handling our customers expect.”

Neil Stubley said: “Ian and I come from very different professions but the roles of Head Groundsman and Design Director at Jaguar have one thing in common – our dedication to achieving perfect precise lines.  If we get one line out of place, the whole world will see it, so it’s vital that we achieve 100 per cent precision with every line we draw.”

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake will go on-sale later this year.
