Article by Christian Andrei, on November 20, 2012

It was not a secret that Jaguar will unveil the new XFR-S sports sedan at the 2012 LA Auto Show but today, the British manufacturer now owned by Tata Motors revealed the first teaser with the car. Although there are no details, we do know that the new XFR-S will be powered by a supercharged V8 engine capable to deliver 550 hp, the same engine found on the XKR-S.

This engine will make the XKR-S the fastest and most powerful sedan the company has ever produced. This is the second model in the ultra-high performance R-S range and builds on the already acclaimed XFR. Beside the XFR-S, Jaguar will also bring the Jaguar F-Type and for the first time it will be shown in Black Pack performance trim.

Furthermore, the Jaguar Land Rover booth will feature the 2013 Range Rover, world’s first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminum body.

"This year’s Los Angeles Auto show is one of the most significant U.S. shows in years for Jaguar Land Rover as we introduce three breakthrough new products,” said Jaguar Land Rover North America President, Andy Goss. “Jaguar Land Rover is making major strides to grow the business with highly targeted new products. The new Jaguar F-TYPE, Jaguar XFR-S and all new Range Rover will all make a major impact, specifically in the United States, which will be the world’s largest market for all three vehicles.”
