British automaker Jaguar staged a unique drone race to demonstrate how spacious the XJL really is. The race was called as Game of Drones and was held at London's Alexandra Palace.
The race track comprised of three XJL's and 13 gates in the shape of the rear door of the XJL. Two professional drone racers flew the drones through the door-shaped gates lit with Phosphor Blue and Red to highlight the ambient lighting of the sedan.
The drones flew at speeds of up to 96km/h. The pilots were operating their drones while sitting in the back of the new XJR575. The long-wheelbase sedan sports 5-litre V8 supercharged engine producing 567bhp and 700 Nm of torque.
The Jaguar XJR575 can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.4 seconds. The long-wheelbase sedan is offered in two bespoke exterior finishes from Special Vehicle Operation - Velocity Blue and Satin Corris Grey.
The winning drone pilot, Brett Collis said, "I've been racing drones in competition for years, but this is a first for me. The course was a great test, but the fact we were able to go at such speeds proves how much space the doors of the Jaguar XJL gave us."
Jaguar design boss, Ian Callum said, "Quality and comfort are always at the forefront of our minds and this is especially true for the Jaguar XJL. The long wheelbase gave us the space to create a passenger experience that is second to none."
The Jaguar XJL is the flagship sedan from the stable of British luxury carmaker. The Game Of Drones was held to demonstrate the spacious interior of the sedan. The drones flew at high speeds through the gates which were spectacular to watch.
