Compare it! Jaguar XKR vs. the BMW 650i | Drive it!
Two luxury convertibles go head to head.This time we compare the open-top versions of the Jaguar XKR and BMW 650i. The 6-series convertible's motor delivers 300 kilowatts of power, while the Jaguar's produces 375 kilowatts. This helps the Jag rocket from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds -- 2 tenths of a second faster than the Bimmer. But this high performance comes at a price. In Germany, buyers need to shell out 114,000 euros for an XKR, while the BMW 650i can be had for 96,500 euros. Is the Jaguar worth the extra investment? Find out when Drive it! tests both cars.
