Jaguar has released a new promotional video which pits the 2016 XJR against a human jet.

In the clip, Martin Brundle races Yves Rossy on a 1.75 mile (2.81 km) stretch of road in the Dubai desert.  Brundle gets to compete in the comfort of the facelifted XJR, while Rossy dons his Jetman outfit which features a 6.5 foot (2 meter) wing span and four Jet-Cat engines.

You'll have to watch the video to see who ends up victorious but before you make your guess we'll tell you Brundle hit speeds of 174 mph (280 km/h) in the XJR while Rossy topped out at 195 mph (313 km/h).

In a statement, Brundle said "This was the most unique race I have ever taken part in. I have never seen anything like the Jetman wing, full of technology and innovation, and Yves is an extremely brave man. It turns out he is also a very fierce competitor!"

As a refresher, the XJR features a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 550 hp (410 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque.  It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
