Jaguar F-Pace Prototype Will Support Team Sky on Tour de France

Light Camo Gives Us Best-Yet Forecast for Production SUV

Jun 30, 2015
Jaguar will provide mobile support for British professional cycling group Team Sky in this year’s Tour de France, using a lightly camouflaged F-Pace prototype as its flagship. The crossover will provide onlookers with the best guess yet as to what the F-Pace will look like when it’s revealed in full production regalia in September.
Jaguar provided some photos of its support vehicle, sporting a form that’s incredibly similar to the C-X17 concept crossover. That’s not wholly surprising, as Jaguar Land Rover has been in the habit of producing vehicles that stay true to their show-car roots. The Range Rover Evoque (nee Land Rover LRX concept) proved that production crossovers could have fabulous styling, and the F-Pace looks to continue that trend with its flowing lines and Jaguar-typical design cues.
At the front, squinty headlights flank a deeply recessed radiator grille, just as they do on Jaguar’s sedans, while graceful front and rear fenders flow into each other along the F-Pace’s smooth bodysides. It’s a largely uncluttered design, except for the massive lower air inlets in the front bumper. Those could stand to be toned down a little.
Frankly, “camouflage” is too strong a word for this crossover’s motif, since some F-Pace owners will likely have some kind of simulated carbon-weave wrap done as soon as they pick up their crossovers. What you’re looking at, really, is a production-spec SUV with a fancy paintjob.
Although Jaguar hasn’t released interior photos or images of its shapely cat’s haunches, we still have a pretty good idea as to what the F-Pace will look like. As you can see, it will almost assuredly be very, very pretty.
