Jaguar XKR-S provides thrilling open-top experience

Propelling the fastest open-top Jag have ever made is an updated version of their 5 litre supercharged AJ-V8 engine. It produces 405 kW and 680 Nm of torque, which is more than 8% improvement over the XKR. The gearbox is a 6-speed automatic with Active Differential. The Jaguar XKR-S Convertible completes 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds before topping off at 300km/h (electronically limited).

The suspension has been upgraded, and the rigidity of the structure improved. The vehicle has impressive handling thanks to a redesigned aluminum front steering knuckle, revised rear geometry and stiffer springs and dampers. The exterior design of the vehicle has been calibrated to ensure ideal aerodynamic properties, allowing the vehicle to perform perfectly, even at high speeds.
