About Jaguar XKR Convertible
With a nose shaped like a bullet, the Jaguar XKR convertible looks very much like a sports car James Bond would drive. In truth, it shares the platform with the Aston Martin DB7, a grand tourer from the same stable as some of the fictional spy's favorite cars. Both the XKR and the DB7 succeeded the Jaguar XJS convertible. The first topless model to come out in the XK series is the Jaguar XK8 convertible. The XK8 is the first car to feature the outstanding 4L Jaguar AJ V8 engine, an engine shared with Ford muscle cars, Land Rovers, and Aston Martins. When the XKR convertible rolled off assembly lines, it came with a supercharged version of this V8 engine. However, the XK series is not only about raw power and sublime performance. These Jaguar cars are also plush and fully featured. Jeremy Clarkson of "Top Gear" compared the interior of the XK8 to the Blenheim Palace, and Jaguar produced a number of limited-edition XKR models, including the convertible-only XKR Portfolio that comes in blue and red complete with Recaro sports seats. Cruise around in the lap of luxury when you pick up a Jaguar XKR convertible from the large inventory of classic British sports cars on eBay.
