Styling/image
Sleek, gorgeous, unmistakable… the XKR is arguably the best-looking model in its class. And as a supercharged convertible, it’s surely unbeatable as a summertime long-distance cruiser.

Interior/practicality
Fling your handbag or briefcase on the back seat, because you’re unlikely to find a person that fits into the tiny space. That aside, the cabin is virtually faultless. The materials are superb, the seating position comfortable on long journeys and Jaguar reckons there’s even room for two sets of golf clubs in the boot.

Engine/performance
With 503bhp of 5.0-litre supercharged V8 under the bonnet, you have to keep an eye on the speedo, as the XKR is deceptively quiet and devastatingly quick. It covers 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and goes on to an electronically limited 155mph. Torque is a mighty 625Nm, while a six-speed electroinc auto transmission with Jaguar Sequential Shift and JaguarDrive gear selector are standard.

Driving experience
The engine sounds amazing whether the roof is up or down, due to all the work that has gone on under the skin to make sure occupants can enjoy the exhaust note in all weathers. The forgiving suspension is better than ever, and every drive is a pleasure. Acceleration can take you by surprise as responses are immediate, while the transmission shifts are instant and smooth.

Ownership costs
Well, you can’t have everything. As with most supercars, fuel returns are pretty dismal at 23mpg on the combined cycle, falling to less than 15mpg in town. The screen price is £78,400 – nearly £10k more than a 180mph Porsche 911 3.6 Cabrio. On the other hand, a Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss is £591,000…

Safety/environment
Pedestrian Contact Sensing automatically deploys the bonnet to minimise injury. There’s also a rollover protection system, adaptive restraint technology, emergency brake assist, plus sensors and alarms all over the place. Dynamic stability control, electronic brakeforce distributon and active differential control are also included. With emissions of 202g/km, the XKR is eligible for band M, which is £405 a year.
