Jaguar KXR-S Convertible (2012)
Wanting to play in the same league as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi with their AMG, M and RS models respectively, Jaguar has introduced the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S. Even though the current XK design is now a mature one, Jaguar felt they had one last swan-song trick up their sleeve. Taking a cue from the Porsche playbook by introducing a sporty limited edition version to drum up new excitement before the model is replaced. Yes, feel free to use any superlative that comes to mind to describe the exquisite XKR-S. Mine include: Faster, more powerful and with just the right hint of exterior styling differences to make it stand out from the “mundane” R version that it easily trumps.
