At the Motor Show in Los Angeles, which was opened in November 16 for the press, the company presented a version of Jaguar XKR-S model with a body of a “coupe” type. The car has received soft developing roof that retracts into a special compartment in the trunk in 18 seconds. In this case, the procedure can be carried out at a speed of up to 24 kilometers per hour. Many people remember this model without a removing roof, that is why critics say Jaguar reaped it out.
