Power Up
Jaguar World, Jaguar XKR-S Convertible, March 2012
'The road is opening out in front of me so I turn the JaguarDrive Control to Dynamic mode, giving it a more responsive accelerator reaction and quicker gearshifts, and finally unleash the car. The result is akin to the detonation of a nuclear bomb. As soon as the supercharger kicks in the burst of acceleration that follows is hard and vicious. I'm slammed into the back of my seat with the same force as if in a fighter jet on take-off and I’m on the verge of being reduced to nothing more than a passenger.'
