Beautiful Photos of the Jaguar XKSS

The Jaguar XKSS is a road-going version of the Jaguar D-Type racing car. By early 1957 a total of 16 of the planned production run of 25 XKSS’s had been completed at Jaguar’s Browns Lane plant. On the evening of 12 February a fire broke out, destroying the remaining nine in mid-production. All of the destroyed vehicles had been destined for North America. Most of the previously built 16 XKSSs were also sold in the US.

In March 2016, Jaguar announced that it would be completing the original 25 car order by hand-building the remaining nine XKSS roadsters to the exact original specification, and assigning them the chassis numbers of the destroyed cars. The “continuation” reproductions were expected to sell for more than £1 million each.

Here is a set of beautiful photos of the Jaguar XKSS.
