Jaguar To Drive The Championships, Wimbledon

British luxury and sports car manufacturer, Jaguar, on Tuesday, was announced as The Official Car of The Championships, Wimbledon.

Sporting icon and Jaguar ambassador José Mourinho was given his first Wimbledon experience to mark the occasion as part of a tour hosted by AELTC Committee Member and former British No.1 tennis star Tim Henman.

“Wimbledon is more than a Grand Slam. You have great tournaments, great matches, but Wimbledon is Wimbledon. The tradition, the history around this tournament is magnificent. There are some iconic moments in your sports history, and in football to play at Wembley is a special moment. It is similar to Wimbledon. The aura is very difficult to explain – you come in and you just feel it,” said José Mourinho.

Commenting on his favourite memory of the Wimbledon tennis championship, Mourinho said: “The one that I really felt was Andy Murray’s victory because it was very special for him. Winning Wimbledon is the same for all the players, but for a British player to win Wimbledon after so many years I felt so much emotion. I am not British, but on that day I felt like I was.”

Jaguar and Land Rover will supply 170 luxury and high performance vehicles to support tournament operations. The new Jaguar XE and XF, as well as successful XF Sportbrake and XJ models will be seen in London at this year’s Championships.
