If you have the means I highly recommend by Aj, Naples Florida on 04/22/2010. Trim: 2010 Jaguar XKR Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 510 HP. Traded my Aston Martin Vantage for it. More reliable, gets just as much attention by the power is a whole lot more. This thing gets crazy fast especially from 30 to 70 is so immediate it is scary. The sound is a lion growl versus the Aston. More sedate but when asked it is ready. More luxurious interior. Better value to DB9 (about 100K less)
Cons: Needs LED in front but I am taking care of it myself from Startech. It really completes the car to modern look.
Overall review: I think this is like a little auto industry best kept secret. Forget SL and 911s and even Aston.

2010 Jaguar XKR by dirtdoc1 on 01/23/2010. Trim: 2010 Jaguar XKR Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fit, Finish & Handling; Exhaust note; Sound System
Cons: No voice activation or backup camera; rear end breaks loose too easily, it might be the dunlops; the car is too heavy
Overall review: With 510hp and 461ft/lbs of torque at 2500rpm it is very easy to accidentally spin the wheels which kicks the tail loose (with the DSC off). The difference between regular and sport mode is substantial. With the DCS off be prepared to go sideways when you least expect it. Sport mode is not for going around 90 degree corners around town. In regular mode it is very tame and easy to drive. It definitely has a dual personality. It is very light feeling and quick through the mountains. If it does break loose through a wide sweeper you can hold it in a drift if you have the guts with 510hp to do so. It has a very rigid frame/body, no noticeable flex at all! The Dunlops are not the right tire, I had Continentals on my S Type R, which were much more sticky. Jaguar has an amazing ability to build cars that ride very smoothly even over speed bumps at any speed yet handle with minimal body roll and a firm stable confidence through the twisties. Oh ...the Sound in total manual mode is addictive.

Ultimate Sports Car by Julian on 02/21/2011. Trim: 2010 Jaguar XKR Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This vehicle is a comfortable easy to drive machine. It can be docile but with one touch and a flip of the paddle shifters it turns into a rocket. Even at high speeds it is very comfortable and stable. With the roof down at 70 mph little wind interference is noted (with windows up). Amazing vehicle, can go up against the super cars that cost 100,000s of dollars.
Cons: This vehicles navigation system screen which controls everything is slow! Also it is unappealing and could be more straightforward.
Overall review: Great race car feel with amazing performance. Great buy.
