Jose Mourinho set to be first customer to receive new Jaguar F-Type Coupe in UK
The official UK launch of the beautiful Jaguar F-Type Coupe will take place tomorrow, where fans and potential customers will be able to pore over the sleek lines and intricate details of Ian Callum's creation.> Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will make an appearance at the event and as UK ambassador to the Jaguar brand, he will also be among the first in the country to receive a shiny new F-Type Coupe when deliveries commence in March.
The hard top version of last year's barnstorming convertible F-Type will come in three different variants: The top-of-the-range R iterant boasts the impressive 548bhp, 5.0-litre V8 that can hit a top speed of 186mph. The S Coupe and standard Coupe produce 378bhp and 338bhp, respectively.
Mourinho can also look forward to a bespoke suspension set-up and new dynamic technologies should he plump for the F-Type R Coupe. New gadgets on this model include a torque vectoring system and an electronic active differential that improves handling and steering response.
Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director Jeremy Hicks said: "I am really excited to be officially presenting the new F-TYPE Coupé in the UK for the first time. This sports car is as important to the Jaguar brand as it is spectacular to drive.
"I am sure all our customers will be as excited as our new ambassador José Mourinho at the prospect of driving the new F-TYPE Coupé."
This isn't the first time Mourinho's name has been linked to a sports car as it was revealed last year that the Chelsea boss had teamed up with tuning firm Mansory and high society club Raff House to work on a supercar that is set to rival the likes of Aston Martin and McLaren.
The 'Special One' was quoted by the car's manufacturer as saying: "I can see myself driving this car to a big game, adrenaline filling my system, as I'm trying to get to the stadium as soon as possible, wishing for the game to start".
