Shirtless supermodel David Gandy stars in new short film about passion for driving

Jennifer McShane

A FILM about driving - it’s not something that is often guaranteed to get high female viewership.

But a shirtless David Gandy might make a difference

Gandy (33) is brand ambassador with Jaguar – and he’s just launched a new short film where he talks about his love of driving.

In the film, entitled ‘Escapism’, Gandy is seen driving various Jaguar cars, including classic C-type, E-type and XKSS models.

Gandy discusses his passion for driving, describing it as “that feeling of freedom, just you and the car” and how driving is his “meditation”.

In the footage, Gandy says his driving is the “ultimate escapism” from his hectic life.

The Londoner was part of the Jaguar Heritage Racing team that took part in the 2013 Mille Miglia and described the event as "one of the greatest adventures of my life."

He is known for his love of cars, having previously written car reviews for British magazine GQ.

The film was previewed at the Goodwood Revival motor event earlier this month.
