2012 Jaguar XKR-S Coupe and Convertible Speed Test

Welcome to El Centro Naval Air Base, 1.5 hours outside of San Diego where Tom Cruise’s Top Gun was filmed. During the winter months this facility becomes home to the legendary Blue Angels, the Navy’s flight demonstration squadron. Jaguar chose the world-famous location because of its two runways that allow for extended speed evaluations. The east/west runway is 9,500 feet long and handles 96% of the traffic, which would be either red, white or blue XKR-S Coupes and Convertibles on this day. The goal was to see who could reach or breach the car’s 186 mph top speed!
