Tumi Morake: New ambassador for Jaguar Menlyn
Pretoria – Popular award-winning comedian and TV star, Tumi Morake, has been chosen as a Jaguar ambassador. In partnership with Jaguar Land Rover Menlyn, Tumi will be driving a new Jaguar F-PACE – finished in Italian Racing Red, to perfectly suit her personality.
“I have always dreamt of driving a Jaguar and when I attended their launch last year, I had heart palpitations,” said Morake. “When I got to pick the colour, I thought that it has to be red, it has to be a colour that speaks to me, something that is out there, unique and exciting. I’m a mom, but I also don’t want to look like a boring mom.”
The F-PACE combines Jaguar’s sports car DNA with the space and practicality of an SUV. It boasts class-leading interior space for passengers, as well as boot capacity of 463 litres – including a full-size spare wheel. When the rear seats are folded flat the total cargo volume increases to a massive 1 553 litres. With underpinnings based on the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car and Jaguar’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics all-wheel drive, the F-PACE offers a thrilling driving experience, with confidence and stability in all weather and on all road surfaces.
“I first saw Tumi performing in May 2016. Her bold and edgy character and entertaining persona resonated with me, and made her the perfect candidate for a brand ambassador,” says Eric Vorster, Dealer Prinicipal at Jaguar Land Rover Menlyn. “Tumi is the epitome of the Jaguar brand – a world of contemporary luxury and refined power, exciting all of your senses. We look forward to having Tumi on board and sharing in her successes in 2017.”
Along with space and practicality, F-PACE also boasts a thoroughly modern set of world-class infotainment and connectivity technologies, through its InControl Touch Pro. The 10.2-inch touch screen is powered by high-speed processors and networking technologies, allowing for intuitive swipe, pinch and zoom gestures, and seamlessly integrates with drivers’ mobile phones. Additionally, it also offers an in-car wireless hotspot for up to eight devices and connected services that integrate with the satellite navigation.
