Jaguar XKR Convertible (2007-2014)

The Jaguar XKR Convertible manages to shine even among its prestigious rivals. It has a supercharged version of the XK’s V8 engine, a lightweight all aluminium construction, exceptional suspension and powerful brakes but no single element makes this car great. The basis of this car is good enough for Aston Martin and this fact helps to explain the sense of occasion of the XKR. It’s pure theatre and next to a DB9 looks rather good value.
