LONDON--November 30, 2012:

Two significant new Jaguars have made their debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

XFR-S

The XFR-S saloon made its global debut at the Show. Unveiled by Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, the XFR-S is the fastest, most powerful and agile sports saloon Jaguar has ever built.

Developed by Jaguar Land Rover's specialist ETO division, the XFR-S features bespoke powertrain, chassis and body enhancements that enable it to push the performance boundaries. With 550PS from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine driving through an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, the XFR-S is capable of reaching 60mph in just 4.4-seconds before going on to an electronically limited top speed of 186mph.

On unveiling the car Adrian Hallmark commented:" Sporting character is evident in allJaguar saloons . In the XFR-S that character has been amplified, the result being a truly engaging car with a combination of technical innovation, assertive design and staggering performance that will satisfy the most demanding of drivers. "

On sale from May 2013 in the UK, the XFR-S is priced at 79,995.

F-TYPE

Making its North American debut at the show was the F-TYPE - Jaguar's all-new two-seater sports car. Seen for the first time with special-order Firesand paintwork and equipped with optional 'Design' and both exterior and interior 'Black' packs, this individual F-TYPE - a V6 S model - demonstrates the range of personalisation options that are available for customers.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, commented:" For me, good automotive design should be about creating excitement, so being here in LA to witness the positive reaction to both the XFR-S and F-TYPE-two highly distinctive performance cars-is very satisfying. "
