Wimbledon, London: Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has revealed the first glimpse of the desirable new XF Sportbrake over Wimbledon's iconic centre court.

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.

Ian Callum, director of design, JLR, watched as ground staff transformed the venue’s famous white lines under the expert eye of head groundsman Neil Stubley.

Mr 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”.

Mr 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 percent precision with every line we draw”.

The XF Sportbrake will join the award-winning XF sports saloon in the Jaguar line-up when it goes on sale this summer.

JLR is official car partner for The Championships at Wimbledon 2017, which runs from July 3, Monday, to July 16, Sunday.
