The first UK customer to get the brand new Jaguar F-Type Coupe R is Chelsea’s manager, Jose Mourinho.
Former Portuguese football player and current manager of Chelsea FC has a new “role”, the Jaguar UK brand ambassador, and along with his new “role”, also came a new car: the Jaguar F-Type Coupe R, as Mourinho has just become the first UK customer to get his hands on the sports car.
“I am very proud to now own the new F-Type R Coupe. It was an honor to receive this spectacular sports car from the gentlemen responsible for building it and I would like to thank the Jaguar team at Castle Bromwich for producing such a wonderful car”, said Jose Mourinho at the event where the keys were handed over to him.
The Jaguar F-Type Coupe R in question has been finished in a Stratus Grey Metallic exterior paintjob and it has a panoramic glass roof, 20-inch Gyrodyne black wheels, covering the red brake calipers, a 12-speaker Meridian audio system and a supercharged V8 engine, with 550 HP (404 kW) and 608 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque, under the hood, which is also used on models such as the XKR-S or the XKR-S GT. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint takes just 4 seconds in this top of the line version.
