A “director’s cut” Jaguar F-Pace raised £102,500 as industry leaders gathered at the annual Ben Ball this week.
Personally specified by Jaguar director of design, Ian Callum, the one of a kind SUV was finished in Storm Grey paint and fitted with the Black Pack and 22-inch Double Helix wheels not available as a standard option on the F-Pace.
The winner of the F-Pace ‘Designer Edition’ lot also receives a special Owner’s Portfolio, featuring words from Ian Callum and a one-off design sketch.
Jaguar Land Rover UK manging director, Jeremy Hicks, also announced his ‘Channel Swim Challenge’ at the event at Grosvenor House, London.
Hicks hopes to raise more than £150,000 swimming the channel with 11 colleagues.
He said: “Ben is a vital lifeline, with its sole purpose to help improve the health and wellbeing of those in the automotive industry and their families.
“I really wanted to challenge myself, my team and also the industry to get behind Ben, as our own dedicated industry charity.
“I’m pushing myself physically because it’s all too easy for us to take our good health for granted, and with our help Ben can come to the aid of those in our industry that need it most.”
