Luxury car manufacturer Jaguar today announced it has selected the forthcoming Dubai International Motor Show to showcase four of its models for the first time in the region.
Taking place from the 5th to 9th November at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the Jaguar stand will feature two new Jaguar “R” models, the 550PS XJR, and the XFR-S, as well as two thrilling new vehicles which the luxury manufacturer plans to keep under wraps until the show’s inaugural day.
The new Jaguar XJR and Jaguar XFR-S models will join Jaguar’s class-leading 2014 model year line-up of vehicles, boasting enhanced features, innovative technologies and new levels of luxury, comfort and performance.
This year sees the British marque celebrate the 25th year anniversary of its dynamic “R” badge range, and visitors to Dubai International Motor Show 2013 will be amongst the first in the region to get up close and personal with the new flagship Jaguar XJR sports saloon and the Jaguar XFR-S, the fastest, most powerful and agile sports saloon Jaguar has ever built.
Speaking about Jaguar’s participation at the Dubai International Motor Show, Robin Colgan, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENA, commented “The iconic Jaguar “R” badge is reserved for our highest performance models, denoting cars that are effortlessly thrilling, technically state-of-the-art and dramatically designed. With our long-standing presence and success across the MENA region, what better occasion to showcase the newest editions to the dynamic “R” range than the region’s biggest motor show.”
He continued: “The Dubai International Motor Show is a fantastic platform to showcase our 2014 model year line-up, which is by far the strongest and most exciting line-up in our history. We also have a few surprises up our sleeves which we are convinced will wow car enthusiasts across the region.”
The Jaguar XJR
The Jaguar XJR, which combines supercar performance and assertive looks with high levels of luxury, is the latest in a long line of luxurious Jaguar sports saloons. The vehicle incorporates enhanced rear cabin luxury features, comfort and in-car technology to create a truly elegant and contemporary luxury Jaguar. With the MENA region ranked as the 4th largest market for the Jaguar XJ in terms of sales, the XJR is sure to follow in its footsteps.
The Jaguar XFR-S
The Jaguar XFR-S incorporates engineering features to create the most driver- centric, agile and responsive iteration of Jaguar’s award-winning XF saloon range. The Jaguar XFR-S builds on the performance of the acclaimed XFR to create an even more focused product. Visitors to the stand will have the unique opportunity to be among the first in the region to see the ultimate expression of seductive Jaguar design and sporting performance in the XFR-S.
The Jaguar F-TYPE
Car enthusiasts at the Dubai International Motor Show will also have the chance to get a closer look at the first full-blooded Jaguar sports car to be launched in more than 50 years. The award winning all-aluminium two-seater Jaguar F-TYPE has already prompted a sharp sales incline across the region since its start of sales earlier this year. With its world class architecture and technology wrapped in a dynamic yet elegant design, the Jaguar F-TYPE convertible has won several accolades since its launch at last year’s Paris Motor Show, including the 2013 “World Car Design of the Year” in March 2013 at the New York International Auto Show.
