2012 Jaguar XKR-S Convertible Live Photos: 2011 L.A. Auto Show

Follow Nelson

The Jaguar XK is growing a bit long in the tooth, but as automakers often do, and as enthusiasts know and love, Jaguar is throwing every trick in the book at the XK to keep it fresh and interesting as its current model cycle winds down. Case in point: the 2012 XKR-S Convertible.

Like its hardtop sibling, the XKR-S Convertible is a more potent, more focused, and more dramatically styled take on the basic XK form. In this case, it's a 4.2-second-to-60, 550-horsepower, 502-pound-feet-of-torque, beautiful drop-top beast. The XKR-S Convertible is also the fastest and most powerful convertible Jaguar has built to date.

For all of the details, including the changes that make the XKR-S just a bit more mental than anything else in the Jaguar range, check out our preview of the convertible here.

  1. Maybe they careful left out the "sudden acceleration issue" that Jaguar has been hiding. I own two Jaguars and as a brand, they have been going down the crap hole, thanks to ownership by Tatu. Jaguar Corporate is horrible to deal with now, it took them three weeks to get back to me after reporting that my car's accelerator locked itself up and was going out of control down a busy freeway at 100 mph (at which point I was in the process of calling 911 to determine my best options for crashing the car). The only thing they were willing to do was run a diagnostic and tell me everything is fine. The company was not willing to even pull the black box and investigate. Stay away from these cars, the company has no concern about your safety.
