Jaguar has made it perfectly clear that they plan on offering the same treatment found in the XKR-S to other models in the line-up. Our first attack on the rendering front was the future XFR-S , but now it’s time to see the upcoming XKR-S Convertible which will actually arrive before the XFR-S.
The design of the convertible XKR-S really won’t change much from the coupe model. The XKR-S was originally designed as a convertible anyway so expect to see the same wide wheel arches, front and rear carbon spoilers, and extra front air scoops as found on the coupe. Under the hood, Jaguar will keep the same AJ-V8 all-aluminum engine with an output of 550 HP and 501 lb/ft of torque, so the sprint from 0 to 60 mph will remain in the 4 second range, while top speed will also be about 180 mph.
Think the XKR-S Convertible will be just as popular as the Coupe version? Hit us up in the comments section below.
