Coscharis in association with Jaguar Land Rover SSA is set to send nine guests to the Jaguar Art of Performance tour, in an all-expense-paid trip scheduled from November 19 – 21, 2016 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The guests are a blend of current Jaguar customers, new prospects and conquest customers of the Jaguar brand.
Coscharis Motors owns the exclusive franchise for Jaguar Land Rover sales and service in Nigeria. With iconic showrooms and service centres across the country, it is posed to deliver more personalized sales and service experience while planning to further sustain the brand advantage and positioning in the premium market segment.
A special high note of this event is the track debut of the new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. This 322km/h supercar is the most powerful Jaguar ever made and the fastest cat on sale today. With a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 423kW and 700Nm, the All-Wheel Drive F-TYPE SVR can catapult from a standstill to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds. As the first Jaguar model to emerge from the Special Vehicle Operations division at Jaguar Land Rover, the F-TYPE SVR features additional engineering that allows it to be lighter, faster and sharper.
During the Jaguar Art of Performance Tour, guests will visit a number of cities around South Africa with added opportunity to experience Jaguar’s range of lightweight, aluminium-intensive cars. These include the All-New Jaguar F-PACE – Jaguar’s first-ever SUV – along with the XE, XF and XJ sports sedans, and also the powerful Jaguar F-TYPE sports car.
“Getting into and driving a Jaguar is an experience like none other. They’re luxurious, and thrilling to drive, in a way that seduces the senses,” says Richard Gouverneur, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa. “We want drivers from all corners of the country to have an unforgettable encounter in a Jaguar and see first-hand why our cars represent the Art of Performance.”
Those participating in the Art of Performance Tour will be able to drive Jaguar cars on normal roads as well as the race track, with professional guidance from Jaguar Experience driving instructors.
According to Josiah Samuel, the Group Managing Director of Coscharis, “while we intend for all our customers and prospects who are interested to participate, we can only send a few at this time but with future plans to involve others in this continuous opportunity to experience the Jaguar Land Rover brands.” “We have always invested in our customers enjoying privileged experiences of our Jaguar Land Rover brands through our local ride and drive events and bespoke driving and riding experiences in South Africa.”
