Jaguar has released a new promotional video featuring the 2016 Jaguar XJR  against a human jet. In this video, you will see Martin Brundle (known as formula one driver and commentator for ITV Sports) races Yves Rossy (the inventor of a series of experimental individual jet packs) on a 1.75 mile stretch road in the vast desert of Dubai.

Martin Brundle competes with its comfortable facelifted XJR, while Vyes Rossy dressed in his jetman outfit featuring a 2 meter wing span (Carbon-Fibre constructed) and four Jet-Cat P200 engines. Before coming to any conclusion, let us tell you that Brundle hit a speed of 174 mph (280 kmph) in the XJR while Rossy topped at 195 mph (313 km/h).

Talking about our interesting part, the XJR facelift will be packed with a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that will produce 550 HP and 680 Nm of torque. It is paired to a eight-speed automatic transmission, which enables the car to bolt 0-100 kmph in a mere 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).

Speaking on this Versus, 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!"
