…Becomes 100,000th Jaguar F-PACE Customer
José Mourinho made a surprise visit to Jaguar Land Rover’s factory in Solihull, UK, to watch employees build his new car: the 100,000th F-PACE.
Mourinho said: “It was an amazing experience to visit Jaguar’s factory and see all the cars, technology and hard work that goes into developing such a beautiful car. 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, motivating them and talking 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, 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 Arjeplog, Sweden.
The Jaguar 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.
