According to reports, the company has assigned renowned sculptor Arzan Khambatta to construct a 60-feet high replica of London’s The Shard skyscraper on Marine Drive. The Shard is UK’s tallest building at 1016 feet, and apparently looks like a shard of glass -hence, the name ‘The Shard.’ Besides, the building considered one of the hallmarks in British engineering and Jaguar wants to convey the same with its all new F-Pace when it launches.
