We recently tested Jaguar's XKR-S Convertible. With a price almost as high as potential owners are on the corporate ladder, this is a car that obviously was not built on a budget.

However, you do get what you pay for. This Jaguar came slathered in leather and carbon fiber, and the color is actually called "Italian Racing Red!" Paired with the flashiness is a supercharged V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic. This moves it along with surprising quickness, and the suspension actually makes this 4000-lb. car feel nimble.

Oh, and the best part? The Jaguar's final assembly point is a place called "Castle Bromwich." That name alone has to be worth something.
