Former British Olympic Skier Graham Bell has set a new Guinness World Records title for the 'fastest towed speed on skis', pulled by the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

Former Olympic Skier Graham Bell achieved a top speed of 188km/h in the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake in Sweden
After only a couple of practice attempts, it was clear that Graham and the XF Sportbrake were more than up to the challenge and he went on to smash the target set by Guinness World Records by over 75km/h, achieving an average top speed of 188km/h at Jaguar Land Rover's Arctic Revi Test Centre in Arjeplog, Sweden.

It was set to be a real challenge for both Graham's physical limits and the premium estate's performance.

The existing record stood at a fraction under 112km/h, but with the XF Sportbrake's all-wheel drive technology, Adaptive Surface Response and All Surface Progress Control, it comfortably hit the high speeds Graham required to set the record.

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover U.K. said, "The XF Sportbrake's superb traction, handling and high-speed stability made it the perfect choice for this speed record attempt. We're extremely proud to have supported Graham in this incredible world-beating achievement - it's this kind of trail-blazing activity that really tests our cars to their limits."
