Jaguar is attracting more and more interest on its future SUV. The first crosover in Jaguar history was already anticipated by the C-X17 Concept in 2013 and is now closer to its official unveil, scheduled to take place this fall during Frankfurt Motor Show, in September.
Until then, Jaguar found another way to promot the SUV called F-Pace. A prototype version of the Jaguar F-Pace will support the Team Sky at the Tour de France Grand Depart in Utrecht.

Part of final testing included sending a prototype to Team Sky rider Chris Froome’s La Pierre-Saint-Martin training camp as a real-world test. The team chose the same car to support them during stage one of the Tour de France – their most demanding and high profile event. The job of the support vehicle is to carry a crew of up to four people including the Team Sky Sports Director, doctor, mechanic and another senior team member. 

The F-Pace Prototype will support Chris Froome on the first of 21 stages, the individual time trial, which starts at Utrecht in the heart of the Netherlands on Saturday, 4 July. The time trial heads south towards Belgium over a twisting route of 13.7km.
