José Mourinho made a surprise visit to Jaguar Land Rover’s factory in Solihull, to watch employees build his new car, the 100,000th F-PACE.
Mourinho wore bespoke Jaguar overalls. He made his way directly to the factory floor to oversee the production of his car. And he helped the team as it moved along the production line.
José Mourinho said:
“It was an amazing experience to visit Jaguar’s factory. Jaguar is a brand that 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 that is very special.”
Upon arrival at the factory, José gave a team talk to the employees. He motivated them and talked about having pride and passion in your work, and the products they deliver.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar said:
“It’s great to have one of the most successful football managers drive the F-PACE. 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 Arjeplog, Sweden.
The Jaguar F-PACE offers an unrivalled blend of performance, design and practicality. The new F-PACE went through one of the most demanding test programmes the company has ever devised.
