Jaguar revealed its 2018 E-Pace with a mid-air barrel roll that sent the luxury SUV flying toward a Guinness World Records mark for the furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle.

The stunt marked the unveiling of Jaguar's second of three planned SUVs, including the 2017 F-Pace and battery-electric I-Pace that will be introduced in 2018. Stunt driver Terry Grant piloted the vehicle for a 50-foot long jump that included a 270-degree corkscrew mid-air roll. Grant experienced a G-Force of 5.5 for a twist that required a 525-foot run up to reach the correct speed.

The E-Pace will offer a pair of 2.0-liter turbocharged Ingenium gasoline engines, including a flagship model that makes 296 hp. It will offer standard all-wheel drive and an array of technological features such as 4G Wi-Fi, a 10-inch touchscreen, and autonomous emergency braking.

The E-Pace will retail for at least $39,595.
