Video: Jaguar XFR Secret Trip To Bonneville Salt Flats



One thing I neglected to mention earlier about Jag’s new XFR is that the Coventry Crew made a trip over to the states in November, 2008. What for? To make a pilgrimage to the salt flats of Bonneville. It was there that Jaguar broke a 16-year-old record. We’ve even got the video to prove it.
