2013 F-Type and Range Rover to be showcased

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that the 2013 XFR-S will be making its public debut in L.A. at the end of the month.

As previously reported, it will retain the supercharged V8 5.0-liter engine but tweaked to output approximately 540 hp (402 kW) and 501 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque. It should enable the XFR-S to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h).

Judging by the attached spy photos, it is expected to get a more aggressive front bumper, LED-infused headlights, ventilated hood and a huge rear wing. Bigger side skirts and front fender vents are also part of the package.

Aside from this model, JLR is also going to showcase the new Range Rover and the beautiful F-Type.

(Coventry, UK) – November 20, 2012 – Jaguar Land Rover will draw the world’s attention to all things British with the debut of three exciting new luxury models in the U.S. at the 2012 Los Angeles International Automobile Show, November 28 – December 9.

"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.”

Making its global debut at the show will be the XFR-S model, the fastest and most powerful saloon Jaguar has ever produced. This is the second model in the ultra-high performance R-S range and builds on the already acclaimed XFR. 

Making its U.S. Auto Show Debut in Los Angeles is the all-new 2013 Range Rover. The world’s first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminum body, the new Range Rover takes the capabilities of the marque’s flagship to a new level, with greater luxury and refinement. The US specification vehicle with the naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 will be approximately 380kgs lighter than the outgoing equivalent. This new aluminum platform delivers significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with an improvement in fuel economy and reduction in CO2 emissions. The new Range Rover goes on sale in December, 2012.

Making its U.S. Auto Show Debut in Los Angeles is the all-new Jaguar F-TYPE, for the first time shown in Black Pack performance trim. An all-new two-seat soft-top convertible sports car built on a front-engine, lightweight aluminum architecture with rear-wheel drive, Jaguar has engineered the F-TYPE to be a true high-performance sports car. The Jaguar F-TYPE combines low vehicle weight, high power and superb aerodynamics to achieve a pure sports car experience, yet with Jaguar elegance and luxury.  The F-TYPE goes on sale in early summer, 2013.

About time a jag entered the super saloon segment with a worthy Contender

the XFR is already a worthy super saloon - it dethroned the previous M5, and some motoring journals favour it even over the new M5. Sure, it does not have the all out madness of the new M5's 412 kw - that is what the XF-RS will have in its crosshair. Jaguar actually invented the super saloon segment with the MKII back in the late 1950s - in my opinion, they are still the only manufacturer that understands the delicate balance between comfort and sports car handling in a saloon - the Germans come very close though - at the end of the day, Coventry, Ingolstadt, Munich and Stuttgardt are all "worthy".
