Jaguar Classic revealed its new XKSS to media at Petersen Museum in Los Angeles.
Only nine of these cars were manufactured and it has been produced to the exact 1957 specification by Jaguar Land Rover Classic’s expert craftsmen.
The stunning XKSS, finished in Sherwood Green paint, has been created by the Jaguar Classic engineering team ahead of the production of nine cars for delivery to customers across the globe in 2017.

- The continuation cars feature period specification four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes
- Plessey pump, and Dunlop tyres with riveted two-piece magnesium alloy wheels.
- Under the bonnet, the XKSS is supplied with a 262hp 3.4-litre straight six-cylinder Jaguar
- D-type engine. The engine features completely new cast iron blocks, new cast cylinder heads and three Weber DC03 carburettors.
- Everything from the wood of the steering wheel, to the grain of the leather seats, through to the brass knobs on the XKSS dashboard, is precisely as it would have been in 1957.
The car is currently going for £ 1 million in Coventry, United Kingdom.
