Jaguar has teased the new XF Sportbrake over Wimbledon's iconic Centre Court ahead of its official unveiling in July this year. With less than 70 days to go until The Championships, Wimbledon 2017, the famously manicured surface of the All England Lawn Tennis Club served as the canvas for a large-scale outline of the dynamic sports estate. Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum watched as ground staff transformed the venue’s famous white lines under the expert eye of Head Groundsman Neil Stubley.

Ian Callum said: “With XF Sportbrake we’ve created a silhouette which sweeps towards the rear, almost into the distance, and really gives the car a sense of speed and sportiness. It will bring new levels of practicality to the range without sacrificing the dynamic design and agile handling our customers expect.” The XF Sportbrake will join the award-winning XF sports saloon in the Jaguar line-up when it goes on sale around July 2017. Neil Stubley said: “Ian and I come from very different professions but the roles of Head Groundsman and Design Director at Jaguar have one thing in common – our dedication to achieving perfect precise lines.  If we get one line out of place, the whole world will see it, so it’s vital that we achieve 100 per cent precision with every line we draw.”

Jaguar is official car partner for The Championships at Wimbledon 2017, which runs from Monday 3 July to Sunday 16 July. Meanwhile, Jaguar Land Rover, the Tata Motors-owned British luxury marquee, announced a price cut in the entire product portfolio in the Indian market due to constantly slumping value of pound sterling post Brexit. The locally built Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque got a reduction in price by approx. Rs. 4 Lakhs and 3 Lakhs, respectively. On the other hand, the CBU models such as the Range Rover Sport and the flagship Range Rover's prices were slashed by a massive Rs. 30 Lakhs and Rs. 50 Lakhs, respectively. After the reduction, the current price for the Range Rover duo stands at Rs. 86.80 Lakhs and Rs. 1.57 Crores (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).
