(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Luxury automotive manufacturer, Jaguar, recently carried out an ultimate performance challenge in the Middle East “ a trip to Jebel Jais in the beautiful mountains of Ras al Khaimah. 

With the kind permission of the government of Ras al Khaimah, Jaguar let loose its most dynamically capable, performance- focused, two-seater sports car on the adrenaline fuelled, hairpin bends of one of the most challenging roads this side of the Nurburgring. The dramatic drive has been captured on film and the exhilarating drive is due to be released across the Jaguar MENA social channels.

As the first official automotive manufacturer to have the honour of officially driving on the new extended Jebel Jais mountain road, Jaguar chose its best performance model for the job; the Jaguar F-Type Convertible V6S. In an exciting twist, the Jaguar FType Coup R, which is about to go on sale in the region, also makes an appearance in the film.

Speaking about the experience, Salman Sultan, PR, social media and events manager for Jaguar Land Rover MENA said, ''Our sincere appreciation to the government officials and police of Ras al Khaimah who helped make this possible. We appreciate their continued support for our endeavours and look forward to working with them again in the near future.'' He continued, ''This has personally been an amazing experience; to see our all-aluminium, performance sports car go the pace in what is regionally regarded as one of the most challenging mountain roads to drive, has been a rewarding experiment to say the least.''

The film tracks the front-engined, rear-wheel drive Jaguar FType Convertible V6S deliver pure dynamic driving performance as it scours the 20km Jebel Jais road, reaching 0-100km/hr in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 275kmph. The dramatic ending sees the beautifully streamlined Jaguar F-Type Coup R deliver an agile acceleration from 0- 100kmph in 4.2 seconds as it disappears into the suns
