Jaguar has unveiled its most powerful open-topped GT ever on the first day of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Equipped with a six-speed automatic gearbox, the XKR-S convertible is eight percent more powerful than the XKR, Jaguar says, with additional suspension upgrades added to improve the car’s handling.
