The 2013 New York International Auto Show had some great debuts and surprises like the new 2014 Camaro Z/28. Of the more everyday cars that held a debut, the most notable was the 2014 Honda Odyssey with its new HondaVAC. Of the exotic vehicles that had a debut, most of the cars won’t be seen in showrooms until later this year, and some will have a limited quantity. We’ve compiled a list of the best exotic debuts, and although some have already made their initial debut in Geneva, here are the vehicles that made their North American debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
Jaguar XKR-S GT
The Jaguar XKR-S GT was developed by the automaker’s ETO division, and is the ultimate road- and track-ready version of the XK coupe. Only 30 vehicles will be produced in the North American market, making it the rarest “R” model in the history of Jaguar R performance cars. Evolved from the XKR-S coupe, the GT features aerodynamic components and suspension developments to increase downforce and optimize the vehicle’s high-speed cornering abilities. As a first for Jaguar, the XKR-s GT will feature a carbon ceramic brake system. The new GT uses a newly developed front and rear suspension with a wider front track, new steering system, and faster steering ratio, all developed from the new F-TYPE two-seater sports car. The new Jaguar XKR-S GT delivers a top speed of 186 mph, and goes from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds.
