CHELSEA Football Club manager José Mourinho has been presented with a brand new Jaguar F-Type R Coupé – by two of the men responsible for building it.Two members of Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich manufacturing team, Gary Johnson and Steven Gaut, were invited to present the car to the charismatic Blues boss.
Steven Gaut was given the opportunity in recognition of his exemplary contribution at Castle Bromwich, and his tireless support of local charities for whom he has raised over £60,000 in recent years. He was joined in presenting the car by Plant Quality Manager Gary Johnson.
As a Jaguar brand Ambassador Mourinho got to personalise his new hard-top F-Type R. Spec highlights include Stratus Grey Metallic exterior paint, 20-inch Gyrodyne Black and Diamond Turned Wheels with Red brake calipers, a Panoramic Glass Roof and a 12-speaker Meridian Surround Sound System.
Speaking at the handover event, Mourinho said: “I am very proud to now own the new F-Type R Coupé. It was an honour 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.”
Steven Gaut said: “It was exciting to deliver a vehicle that I have personally had a hand in producing to Mr. Mourinho. We take immense pride in building Jaguar cars at Castle Bromwich, and this has been a special reward for producing some of the most beautiful and capable cars in the world.”
Series production of the F-Type Coupé is now under way at the Midlands facility that also builds the convertible version.
