WHEN it comes to posh estates, is the Jaguar XF Sportbrake The Special One?
Well for a day it certainly was.
That’s because the self-pronounced football boss Special One Jose Mourinho starred in this video the promote the new Big Cat.
After winning three trophies in his debut season at Manchester United, Mourinho added a fourth by getting his hands on the Wimbledon tennis trophy.
Andy Murray may be the current holder of the All England Club’s prestigious cup, but he appears to have fallen foul of the Portuguese’s lust for success.
In the video, the world No 1 bids farewell to the trophy he won with a straight sets win over Milos Raonic on Centre Court last July. He even says to the trophy “bye bye poppet”.
But the Scot does not realise that his prized possession is heading into the arms of Mourinho, via the helping hands of a pair of scheming schoolchildren.
As Murray hits a few balls in practice ahead of the start of the 131st edition of the SW17 tournament, his trophy is whisked away to a school in nearby Richmond.
While a group of young children are tasked with constructing their own replica of the famous trophy, two kids take it upon themselves to take home the real thing.
As they secretly swap it for their own version, wrapped in a special Wimbledon towel, they whisk it away into the car park where ‘the trophy villian’ Mourinho is waiting.
The United boss gives the youngsters a thumbs up before declaring ‘Game, Set, Match’ as he safely stores the silverware onto the passenger’s seat.
Meanwhile, back at the All England Club a bemused Murray is left to examine the paper mache version of his trophy.
All very amusing.
But indeed the XF Sportbrake looks stunning. Another great PR job by Jaguar.
And another great design from Ian Callum and his team.
They’ve served up another ace.
