Siddharth, who is the owner of the Jaguar has been taking the same journey for the third time now. He first started in 2022 and that’s when he became viral on the Internet. Since then, he did this trip twice.

Did a similar trip in January 2023

Earlier this year in January, Siddharth wrapped his Jaguar XF sedan in the colors of the Indian national flag – Saffron, White, and Green. According to Doshi, he wrapped his car in the tricolor to raise awareness about India’s presidency of the G20 and the significance of the G20 group as a whole.

Siddharth Doshi’s Jaguar XF, originally white, has been wrapped in the tricolor scheme with specific elements in each color. The bonnet, front bumper, and front fenders are adorned with saffron, while the rear fenders, rear door panels, boot lid, and rear bumper feature a green wrap. The front doors and a portion of the roof retain their original white shade. The combination of these wrap jobs, along with the car’s original white color, creates a tricolor theme that is attracting attention wherever the car goes.

In August 2022, on the occasion of the 75th Independence Day anniversary, he wrapped his XF sedan in a similar tricolor-themed wrap to promote the Central Government’s ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ campaign.

The Jaguar XF utilized for this awareness campaign by its owner is a 2019 Prestige variant of the sedan, powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. This engine is one of the commonly-used diesel engines in Jaguar-Land Rover’s India lineup. In the XF, it delivers a maximum power output of 180 PS and a peak torque output of 430 Nm.
