José Mourinho made a surprise visit to Jaguar Land Rover’s factory in England (Solihull ) to watch workers build his new car, the 100,000th F-Pace.
Mourinho wore bespoke Jaguar overalls and made his way directly to the factory floor to oversee the production of his car and helped the team as it moved along the production line.
Mourinho said it was "an amazing experience" to visit Jaguar’s factory and see all the cars, technology and hard work that went into developing "such a beautiful car".
"Jaguar is a brand I have been involved with for many years. Back in 2014, I was the first UK customer to receive the F-Type coupe, and now to become the 100,000th Jaguar F-Pace customer is something very special.”
On arriving at the factory, Mourinho gave a team talk to the employees about having pride and passion in their work, and the products they deliver.
Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar, said it was great to have one of the most successful football managers drive the F-Pace.
"Our SUV that has been voted as the best and most beautiful car in the world by the 2017 World Car of the Year jury. Just like José Mourinho, the F-Pace is all about individual style and top performance.”
The F-Pace is the fastest selling Jaguar vehicle ever and is currently the fastest Jaguar vehicle to reach the 100K sales mark.
In 2016, Mourinho test drove the Jaguar F-Pace as part of an extreme high-performance driver training experience in the Arctic Circle. José Mourinho mastered the art of high speed drifting and full throttle ice driving on a 60km frozen lake at Jaguar’s extreme testing facility in Sweden.
Jaguar says the F-Pace offers an unrivalled blend of performance, design and practicality. To ensure that every system functions perfectly even under the most extreme conditions, the new F-Pace has been subjected to one of the most demanding test programmes the company has ever devised.Here is the link to the short film of Mourinho working on his new F-Pace:
