2002 Jaguar XKR Convertible Road Test
Every now and again I book a test car that has me waiting by the window in agitated anticipation for its arrival. Such was the case with Jaguar's sensational XKR Convertible. Really? What gasoline-blooded enthusiast wouldn't be? A 370-hp, drop-top, luxury missile capable of 0 - 60 mph blasts of 5.3 seconds! Performance aside, the new XK series was designed in the spirit of the original XKE (E-Type), an automotive icon critically acclaimed as the most beautiful car ever.
