The 2012 Jaguar XKR-S Convertible comes with an upgraded third generation 5.0 liter supercharged AJ-V8 petrol engine produces 550 PS (405kW) and 520 lb.-ft. (680 Nm) of torque, a 8% power increase and torque increase of 9% over the Jaguar XKR. Driving the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox, the Jaguar XKR-S Convertible accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds) and on to an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

Extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics, wind tunnel and track has resulted in the aerodynamic design changes applied to the Jaguar XKR-S Convertible. These aerodynamic design changes give the front of the XKR-S a dramatic and bold appearance. Vertical feature lines run down from the edges of the oval air intake into a new bumper design which incorporates a wider, lower air intake, a carbon fibre splitter and twin side nacelles. At the edges of the bumper, vertical panels channel air down the side of the car along new sills, which serve to both smooth the horizontal airflow and emphasise the 10mm reduction in ride height.

A unique rear wing with a carbon fibre inlay works in conjunction with a rear apron featuring a carbon fibre diffuser. The result is a reduction in overall lift of 26 percent and balanced aerodynamics front and rear to keep the XKR-S Convertible perfectly pinned to the road.

The exterior changes for the Jaguar XKR-S Convertible include the application of gloss black to the exterior brightwork, complemented by the dark technical finish of the lightweight, forged 20” Vulcan design alloy wheels through which can be seen the Jaguar High Performance Brake calipers finished in either an eye-catching red or discreet gunmetal. The Jaguar XKR-S Convertible is available in a range of six colors, including Polaris White and British Racing Green, a tribute to Jaguar’s competition heritage. The acoustically treated hood opens and stows in just 18 seconds and has been proven at the car’s maximum speed. It comes in black as standard with a further six optional colors available.
