Mourinho puts on a ‘special’ performance

Written by: Neil

Jose Mourinho has shown his skills extend beyond the realm of football after putting on a full-throttle performance at Jaguar Land Rover's extreme testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Taking part in high-performance testing for the new Jaguar F-PACE S, Mourinho set a stunning time while traversing 60 km on a frozen lake, revealing that ice driving is just one of many strings to the flamboyant Portuguese's bow.

Accompanied by Finnish professional driver Tommi Karrinaho, the pair put the new Jaguar F-PACE S through its paces ahead of the model's European launch, which is coming this spring.

Following his exploits, Mourinho said: "The experience was magnificent. For people in my world, I think a few days in a place like this is magnificent.

"The flying lap with Tommi sent my adrenaline soaring. It’s something I've only ever experienced before when I have walked out in front of 80,000 football fans."

Already the owner of a Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe, the former Chelsea boss and three-time Premier League winner has now placed an order for the new F-PACE S.

A short film of Mourinho's exploits on track has been created by Jaguar to commemorate the event and will be published online in the near future.
