New Jaguar XJL in ‘Game of Drones’ challenge

Jaguar XJ Game of Drones

Jaguar has staged a unique drone race to demonstrate how much room there is inside the luxurious long-wheelbase XJ saloon.

High-speed drones piloted by professional racers flew through three cars during the race at Alexandra Palace, London, on a course marked out with 13 gates the same shape as an XJL rear door.

Travelling at speeds of up to 60mph, the drones navigated their way through the door-shaped gates lit in Phosphor Blue and Red to highlight two of the XJ’s eye-catching interior lighting options.

Victorious drone pilot Brett Collis said: “I’ve been racing drones in competition for years, but this is a first for me. The course was a great test, but the fact we were able to go at such speeds proves how much space the doors of the Jaguar XJL gave us. Despite having to fly through the cabin we were still pushing the drones to their top speeds.”
