    Jaguar F-Pace Rolls Over at Goodwood

    Interesting stunt, but it did not end well for the F-Pace...

    Center of Gravity was just too high. Without a dry sump system a rollover could easily result in engine destruction as well.

    So presumably, a Tesla Model S with its ultra low centre of gravity would have been a better choice of vehicle for this stunt ?

    Could you get a Tesla up on two wheels? Certainly the batteries and motors would be as functional upside down as right side up, except for poor traction.

    This stunt have been done with all kinds of vehicles for decades. Remember James Bond? It is often performed at car shows. You have to put a little extra pressure in the tires and focus on the task. As I mentioned in another thread, there are a few nice videos about it on Youtube. None of them shows any accident with the F-Pace. Was it after the hillclimb?

    It was immediately after crossing the line.

    So the official Jaguar video stopped at exactly the right time

    But that is not the same car. The car with the damage is blue and is damaged (surprise) on the right side. This one on the video is undamaged on the right side, and it's mainly black. The Bottom and the rear is blue. It also has some writing on the side. Why is it smoking BTW? They don't seem to try to put out a fire, and they keep on driving the car for a while. Could it be, that two F-Pace's had accidents? One rolled over, and one started smoking?
    Kind regards
