Jaguar F-TYPE R AWD Bloodhound SSC RRV would make its world premiere at the Coventry MotoFest On May 30/31, 2015. It is one of the cars that will support the Bloodhound world land speed record attempt. The Bloodhound F-TYPE R is the latest project of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, created by Jaguar Design incorporating the Bloodhound SSC colours.

The organisers have closed off the Coventry ring road to public traffic in order to host a number of motorsport activities and the Bloodhound F-TYPE will be taking part in laps on Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31. Jaguar will also be previewing its activities at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed – the theme of which this year is ‘Flat Out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge’ - by bringing along some of the most iconic cars from its rich heritage. As Technical Partner of Bloodhound SSC, Jaguar is supplying engines, engineering expertise and a number of support vehicles for the attempt to break the world land speed record. The F-TYPE R AWD has already fulfilled a critical role in the development of the Bloodhound SSC with a communications test back in November 2014.

Fitted with the same radio equipment as the rocket powered Bloodhound SSC, the F-TYPE was driven head-to-head at top speed with a similarly equipped jet flown at 500 knots and just 20 feet above the ground. The combined closing speed of almost 1126kmph enabled the successful test of the system that will allow communications between the ground crew and Andy Green in Bloodhound SSC. Joining the Bloodhound F-TYPE at MotoFest will be a star line-up of Jaguar heritage vehicles, including a 1956 D-type Long Nose and the stunning 1966 XJ13 – the only one of its kind in existence. A 1974 Group 44 E-type, a 1976 Broadspeed XJ12 Coupé and the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9 will also see action over the weekend, while a 1938 SS 100 will be on static display to visitors.
