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?There are a few videos of it, did not look good for Jaguar....
The issue is not the stunt going wrong. (that happens)It IS difficult to drive a car on two wheels. Stunts like that sometimes goes wrong. No shame in that. Acrobats, gymnasts, figure skaters and so on also fall and make other mistakes from time to time. Those things happen. And in this case it can't really be a fault of the car's. Some cars may be easier to balance on two wheels than others, but that hardly says much about how good a car it is, when driving normally. So even thought it is of course somewhat embarrassing, it shouldn't harm Jaguar's reputation.
How else would Steve Cropley, Matt Saunders, Vicky Parrott... make a living? Their sole skill is putting their tongue down JLR's backside.I find it quite amazing that the British automotive press simply posts the Jaguar promo video and does not do any digging behind the scenes.
All that is probably just for the cameras, the video and the audio. The cage and the fire extinguisher are there, because the Drivers' Union demands some safety equipment.BTW, this is the interior of the F-Pace that went up the hill at Goodwood, just in case anyone was under that illusion that it was a stock vehicle....

That is a fuel cell, which is there both for fire safety and to prevent fuel starvation once the car is on 2 wheels.I don't know, what the square metallic box in the middle is, so perhaps that is something, that might help.
