Video: Jaguar Takes the XKR-S On Some Ice


What's the best place to take a Jaguar XKR-S Convertible for a spin?

What do you do when you're in possession of a Jaguar powered by a 5.0-liter V8 with 550hp? Taking it for a drive on some ice is definitely one thing, if you live in Finland. In this newly posted video from Jaguar, a Finnish driving instructor working for the automaker takes a XKR-S convertible for a spin out on a sheet of ice. For a rear-wheel drive sports car, it actually seems to handle itself quite well on the slippery surface.

And while our preference for such a wintery drive would be the coupe variant, the convertible looked like it was an equally good time. Having made its official debut last November at the LA Auto Show, the Jaguar XKR-S convertible can be all yours for a cool $138,000 - fluorescent winter hat not included.
