Jaguar XKR-S Convertible Spied
First it was only a rumor and now we know for sure that Jaguar is working on the hottest version of the open-top XK model they’ve ever released. Our esteemed colleagues from Carscoop have managed to take a few spy shots with the upcoming XKR-S Convertible and guess where these pictures were taken? That’s right, on the Nurburgring, where else?
As a reminder, back in March at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show, the British automaker launched the coupe version of the XKR-S so it goes without saying that a convertible will soon be launched. It will come with a new front fascia that has a different nose, along with an updated bumper that will feature winglets on both corners as well as a ventilated bonnet. In the back, expect to see a revised bumper that has a diffuser, a prominent wing and four tailpipes. Also new will be the alloys and the bigger and more aggressive side skirts.
The car will be powered by an updated V8 5.5-liter supercharged engine that will fire 550 hp and 501 lb.-ft (680 Nm) of torque. In addition, the Jaguar XKR-S Convertible will feature a lowered sports suspension along with a new high performance braking system which will be able to stop this beast.
We don’t know when Jag will release the car but probably it will have its official debut next month during the Frankfurt Motor Show.
