About the winning vehicles:
The Jaguar F-PACE is a performance crossover designed and engineered to offer the agility, responsiveness and refinement that all Jaguars are renowned for, together with unrivalled dynamics and everyday versatility.
Developed using Jaguar's Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the F-PACE combines purity of line, surface and proportion with F-TYPE-inspired features such as the powerful rear haunches, fender vents and distinctive tail light graphics.
Jaguar F-TYPE SVR
The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar SVR, developed to exploit the lightweight aluminium sports car's full potential while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability. More powerful, lighter, and benefiting from an enhanced chassis and driveline and active aerodynamics, the all-wheel drive F-TYPE SVR Coupé and Convertible deliver supercar performance – in all conditions – and unrivalled driver engagement and reward.
