Going into this week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Jaguar had revealed only a teaser shot of the XFR-S, its fastest and most powerful sedan ever.At its press conference on Wednesday, the opening day of the show, we were on scene for the big reveal.

While the XFR-S does not have Jaguar’s hallmark elegance, it delivers a huge 550 horsepower, and an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph. It will hit to road next summer with a base price of $99,000.

Disclosure: Ford paid for our travel and lodging expenses to visit the LA Auto Show this year.
