We’ve seen various car manufacturers pull different stunts, especially on slippery surfaces, to showcase their product’s ability to find traction even when the odds are stacked against them.
More recently, there was the Maserati Levante hauling a snowboarder and last year, Land Rover raced against huskies on a snow circuit. This time, Jaguar debuted its new XE 300 Sport by pitting it against a Winter Olympic gold medallist skater, Shaolin Sandor Liu, around the world’s longest artificial outdoor ice circuit in Netherlands.
Find out if the Jaguar XE 300 Sport could actually beat a Winter Olympic gold medallist in his own territory in the video below.
The new XE 300 Sport variant is not only available for the XE line up but also for the XF and XF Sportbrake with distinct interior and exterior designs. The XE 300 Sport is fitted exclusively with the new 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine with 296 hp and 365 Nm of torque, similar to the one found in the new Range Rover Velar launched in Malaysia yesterday, with power delivered to all four wheels.
All 300 Sport models can be distinguished with Dark Satin Grey finishings on its door mirror caps, rear spoiler and grille, along with 19 or 20-inch Satin Technical Grey wheels.
