Jaguar and Land Rover will be debuting a series of exciting new models at this year’s annual celebration of all things automotive; the Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking place this week from 4 to 7 July.

Continuing the most demanding test regime of any pre-production Land Rover to date, a camouflaged prototype Defender will be putting its on-road dynamic abilities to the test on the hill in the ‘First Glance’ batch twice daily. 

Taking a short break from the world's first all-electric production based international race series supporting Formula E, the all-electric Jaguar eTROPHY I-Pace race car will be silently storming the Goodwood Hill every day in front of the Goodwood crowds for the first time.

Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director, Rawdon Glover said: "Annually, Goodwood Festival of Speed is our largest event, and we have pulled the stops out this year to bring our award-winning Jaguars and Land Rovers to both our stand and the hill. 

"We have created an inviting space for customers to come and spend some time with the team and we remain one of the only stands to offer in-car experiences which have proved incredibly popular with festival goers.

"I myself am particularly excited about seeing the new Defender testing on the hill, and I know our customers will love the thrill of a passenger ride in our Jaguar F-Type on our handling circuit or a Land Rover on the off-road course."
