German tuner Arden will introduce a performance upgrade program for the Jaguar XKR-S which will take the British coupe to around 645 PS.

This program which increases the output on the car’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 by around 95 PS should also be responsible for the lowering of its 0 to 60 mph sprint time by around 0.8 seconds which means it will reach 60 in around 4.2 seconds instead of 5 seconds.

And here it is !…the most powerful and fastest open-top GT ever created by Jaguar. We’re talking about the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S Convertible, unveiled today in Los Angeles.

This version, just like the hard top one, uses the automaker’s AJ-V8 GENIII petrol engine which produces 550PS (405kW) and 502lb/ft (680Nm) and has CO2 emission levels of ‘only’ 292 g/Km. In this case the engine is good for accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds (0 to 100 Km/h in 4.4 seconds) and reaching a top speed of 186 mph (300 Km/h).

Tiff Needell is back on the screen testing sportscars, with his latest appearance marking a battle between new vs old in which the Jaguar XKR S is put to the test against the iconic XJ200.

This sportier version of the XKR, badged with an additional letter, the S, produces 550 HP and costs a total of 100,000 GBP (20,000 GBP more than the car on which is based). At a first glance the XKR S might seem overpriced, but according to Tiff, its tag is well justified not only by its sport exhaust, lowered suspension, engine which packs an additional 40 horses or the 16 way adjustable driver’s seat, but mainly by the fact that its handling has been greatly improved.

Mat Watson from Autoexpress went to Portugal, at the Portimao racing circuit in order to review the most expensive Jaguar money can buy at the moment, and that is the XKR S.

Priced at 97,000 GBP the Jaguar XKR S costs 18,500 GBP more than the regular XKR, so what does all the price difference really get you?

Well apart from a striking exterior finish, the XKR S comes with a carbon fiber body kit for added high speed stability, some extra sporty trim in the cabin and a free flowing exhaust system that enables the engine to sound more aggressive.
