Careless guy drowns his Jaguar F-Pace in a ford

Jaguars obviously don't like water!

Felines don't like to splash around in the water. This statement is confirmed in the automotive world, where an unskilled driver recently drowned the engine of his Jaguar F-Pace while crossing a ford at full speed. The event occurred in England at the Rufford Mill Ford, a passage that is easily flooded on rainy days.

However, crossing this area is still allowed if you are careful and have the right vehicle. It is therefore often trucks, SUVs and pickup trucks that dare to cross this area because they are obviously higher and less vulnerable to the various water infiltrations in the engine and the passenger compartment.

But having one of these vehicles does not guarantee immunity. It is also necessary to remain vigilant. The driver of the aforementioned F-Pace clearly did not apply these instructions and made a common mistake. To avoid getting stuck in the middle of the ford, the person went at full speed, creating a huge wave at the front of the vehicle.

This wave then completely submerged the bonnet and consequently the engine. In addition to disturbing the ducks, the man caused heavy damage to the powertrain of his SUV. This is noticeable at the exit of the ford where the Jaguar emits a thick white steam cloud from its exhaust pipe accompanied by water, a sign that the engine has suddenly drunk much more water than diesel.

  • Actually, jaguars are perfectly fine in the water! They often hunt near waters and sometimes even hunt for Caymans!

  • Some felines are competent swimmers, Tigers especially so. Man however is capable of incompetence when empowered by a false sense of bravado whilst operating a piece of trinket meant for the high streets. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • Actually if you’re that thick with a car, you can drown anything, he didn’t make a nice steady bow wave, what a complete gonk of a driver...

    • It’s obvious the driver failed in the most basic aspect of vehicle ownership, RTFM, the maximum wading speed is limited to 7km/h and depth limited to 525mm, a bow wave is inconsequential at those limits. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • What a half wit ! He hit the water so fast and so hard he even dislodged the number plate, what was he thinking. He needs a refresher course in common sense.
