Jaguar has slapped on a special livery to celebrate Team Sky's triumph at the 2015 Tour de France.
A prototype of the Jaguar F-Pace served as a support vehicle for the team in stage 1 in Utrecht and now it has gained a "celebratory light camouflage" after Chris Froome and his teammates took the win by being ahead in the General Classification by 1 minute and 12 seconds. This new livery provides a better glimpse at Jaguar's first ever crossover which will be unveiled in production guise in mid-September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The "family sports car" will go head to head with the Porsche Macan and aims to grab a piece of the market by combining a lightweight construction with powerful engines and Jaguar's sleek design. It will be available right away in an F-Pace S version with a 340 bhp supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and chances are there's also going to be a 550 bhp supercharged V8 later on inside the flagship F-Pace SVR.
The lesser models are getting an array of efficient Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines while an EV derivative could be planned for a release in the years to come with a 300-mile (483 km) range.
