TWO SPORTING heavyweights joined forces last week as the new Jaguar estate was revealed.

World heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua and Andy Murray, two-time Wimbledon champion, both helped pull the covers off the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake before placing his men’s singles trophy inside and sending it on a UK-wide tour to inspire the next generation of players.

Jaguar is the Official Vehicle Partner of The Wimbledon Championships and to celebrate the relationship the premium estate was revealed on a replica Centre Court.

“Winning my first major title ten years ago was an amazing moment for me; the culmination of everything I’d worked for my whole life.

“I feel very lucky to have got to where I am today and hope that anyone passionate about tennis gets the opportunity to play and improve,” said Murray. He added:

“Letting go of the trophy will be difficult, but there’s no better vehicle than the Jaguar XF Sportbrake to take it on this UK tour.

“I’m pleased that people are going to be able to get up close to the trophy when it visits schools and tennis clubs, and hopefully it might encourage people to pick up a racket this summer”.

The XF Sportbrake joins Jaguar’s award-winning XF saloon in its tenth year of production. The XF was launched in 2007 and has now claimed almost 200 global awards. The saloon’s new Sportbrake sibling delivers equally impressive performance, design and technology, with greater practicality and space. With sports car-derived handling, a practical 565-litre load space and advanced convenience and safety features, the XF Sportbrake has the best of Jaguar design and technology. It also delivers impressive aerodynamic efficiency of Cd 0.29.

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said:

“The iconic Jaguar posters of the 1950s promised customers grace, pace and space.

“The XF Sportbrake re-imagines this offer for 21st-century active families, with stunning looks, sports car performance and a load space fit for active lifestyles.”
