Jaguar’s dynamic new estate has been revealed by world tennis number one Andy Murray. The two-time winner of the Championships, Wimbledon, pulled the covers off the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake before placing his men’s singles trophy inside and sending it on a UK-wide tour to inspire the next generation of players. Jaguar is the Official Vehicle Partner of The Wimbledon Championships and to celebrate the relationship the premium estate was revealed on a replica Centre Court.
“Winning my first major title ten years ago was an amazing moment for me; the culmination of everything I’d worked for my whole life. I feel very lucky to have got to where I am today and hope that anyone passionate about tennis gets the opportunity to play and improve.
Letting go of the trophy will be difficult, but there’s no better vehicle than the Jaguar XF Sportbrake to take it on this UK tour. I’m pleased that people are going to be able to get up close to the trophy when it visits schools and tennis clubs, and hopefully it might encourage people to pick up a racket this Summer.”

This new car’s innovations include an intuitive gesture-controlled sunblind for the Sportbrake’s super-sized, full- length, panoramic roof, Driver Condition Monitoring to detect signs of tiredness after an active day and a waterproof Activity Key you can wear while playing sport. As well as self-levelling rear suspension ensures an effortless ride, an advanced range of clean and efficient four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines with low CO2 emissions. Not to mention – it is beautiful!
“The iconic Jaguar posters of the 1950s promised customers grace, pace and space. The XF Sportbrake re-imagines this offer for 21st-century active families, with stunning looks, sports car performance and a load space fit for active lifestyles.“
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design
To help inspire the next generation of tennis talent, Jaguar is doing something that has never been done before, and is taking the famous men’s singles trophy on a nationwide tour of clubs and schools. As Andy Murray counts down to the defence of his Wimbledon title later this month, the gilt cup will be chauffeured between venues in an XF Sportbrake.
