XKR-S cabriolet variant features a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque.

Jaguar has unveiled the 2012 XKR-S Convertible at the Los Angeles motor show today.

The XKR-S cabrio comes with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque coupled to a six-speed automatic gearbox. That allows for an acceleration from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds) and a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

The soft-top roof of the XKR-S opens and stows in 18 seconds and the car features technologies such as Performance Active exhaust that helps with output and has its own distinct sound. Additionally, Adaptive Dynamics for the suspension provides safer and more exciting handling for the driver.

Inside the XKR-S Convertible are carbon-leather trimmed Jaguar Performance seats, a multifunction three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel and Jaguar-embossed stainless steel pedals.

Prices for the XKR-S Convertible will begin at around £103,000 in the U.K and $138,000 MSRP in the U.S.
