The brand new Jaguar XKR-S convertible roared to life, wowing guests of the current Los Angeles Auto Show. That's just one week after the car was announced by the car maker. A rag-top version of Jag's quickest and most powerful model is sure to be coveted by enthusiasts everywhere. The cost will make most of us just window buyers at the car dealership. Just 25 of the automobiles will ensure it is to United States showrooms. Here is the proof: New Jaguar XKR-S convertible roars out from Los Angeles Auto Show
Paying for power
The coupe version of the XKR-S has already wowed most critics and aficionados. You can anticipate the same power, style and performance with the new rag-top version. It will allow your hair to blow in the wind at the same time. With its sleek styling and supercharged, direct-injected 5.0-liter V8, delivering 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, it should please just about everyone except for soccer moms - not a lot of room for kids or gear.
Anticipate some speed
Jaguar explains that it will not take long to go from 0 to 60. In fact, the XKR-S only takes 4.2 seconds to do it. That’s fast, but Steve Siler of “Car and Driver” states he very easily knocked that down to four flat in test drives. The 186 mph top speed is also attractive.
The mileage on the car
The mileage for the vehicle is at 15 mpg in the city. On the road, it gets 22 mpg. As with all XKR-S models, the only transmission provided is a six-speed automatic.
How the exhaust works in the vehicle
The exhaust is one of probably the most essential points of selling the vehicle. The active, free-flowing exhaust system not only wails, accentuating the power and fun of driving the XKR-S convertible, but it also helps ramp up the horsepower. The coupe version has aluminum steering knuckles. This makes it so camber stiffness has a 23 percent increase.
Will surely cost you
The price tag of $138,875 is the real problem with this sporty car. Getting speed and power like this is going to cost you. This is also why the United States will simply get a few. As the car becomes more wanted, the price could be expected to just increase.
