The Jaguar XFR-S might have garnered all the attention at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but the company also introduced an F-Type with a variety of personalization options.

Starting with the exterior, the convertible features special-order Firesand paint which is one of several unique colors - including Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Italian Racing Red, Rhodium Silver and Satellite Grey - that are available upon request. The car is also equipped with an exterior design package which includes a front spoiler, extended side skirts and a gloss black rear valance. There's also a "Black Pack" which adds gloss black paint on the front grille surround, side vents and roll bar hoops.

The interior also benefits from a "Black Pack" that adds gloss black trim on the steering wheel, vent surrounds, door switches and instrument cluster dial rings.

LA AUTO SHOW: Global and North American Jaguar debuts

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

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 all Jaguar 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."

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."
