As expected, the new XK Coupe is accompanied by a sleek Convertible. Like its predecessor, the new XK Convertible is all about luxury and style. A 300-bhp V-8 and a 6-speed automatic should ensure respectable performance, but the XK is more of a grand tourer than a sports car. Surprisingly, the convertible top is fabric, and not an articulated hardtop. This is disappointing since far less expensive coupe/convertibles are available with metal roofs.
