Just as Jaguar’s new XK sports coupe gets ready to roll into showrooms, the automaker is adding a second model to the lineup. The convertible version features a three-layer ragtop that can operate in just 18 seconds. The XK convertible’s aluminum chassis and body are not only lighter than the old sports car, but 50 percent stiffer. The automaker intends to bring the coupe to market for $75,500, officials announced on Monday, while the convertible will carry a $6,000 premium. So far, Jaguar claims to have received about 4000 “firm” advance orders for the next-generation XK.
