RM Sotheby?s is Auctioning One of the Nine Jaguar XKSS Continuations






There are few modern sports cars around which legends gather more thickly than the Jaguar XKSS. Following the company?s withdrawal from racing after the 1956 season, a number of both completed and incomplete D-Types remained in factory stock and unsold. The decision was made to convert these cars to road-going specification, for sale to the wanting American market. Bodywork was modified with the removal of the divider between the seats and the large tail fin, as well as the addition of a passenger door, a full-width windshield with chromed frame, side screens in both driver and passenger doors, chromed bumperettes, and a simple folding top. Otherwise the XKSS was a D-Type, barely, slightly tamed?a wolf in another wolf?s clothing.

It was a rare occasion when a race car with only a few minor changes was then resold as a road car, and perhaps unsurprisingly, most of the people who bought an XKSS were sportsmen who wound up racing them anyway. Dick Thompson, the famed ?Flying Dentist,? comes to mind. Yet not many had the chance to make such a dream their reality, regardless of their wealth and stature. After only sixteen D-Types had been completed to XKSS specification, the remaining nine chassis were destroyed in a fire that swept through Jaguar?s Browns Lane factory. Since the intention had been only to build the model until the remaining D-Type stock was used up, the fire meant that the XKSS came to an end.

The survivors of the sixteen 1957 models are today treasured as some of the world?s most valuable and fiercely prized collector automobiles. The most famous, of course, is that owned and enthusiastically driven, much to the consternation of studio executives, by Steve McQueen?a car so famous that it has become a part of its owner?s legend.

Because the XKSS is so fiercely sought after, in March 2016 Jaguar announced that it would complete the original intended production run of 25 cars by finally building the nine XKSS lost to the Browns Lane fire. Each of these cars was produced in the Jaguar Land Rover Classic facility at, fittingly enough, Browns Lane, which had earlier turned out a highly regarded run of new E-Type Lightweight coupes?one of which is also featured in this collection.

Eighteen months of research, including digitally scanning several original XKSS examples, were used to form an initial prototype from which the nine production cars were made. Each of these cars were literally new from the wheels up, but utilized one of the original nine chassis numbers assigned to the cars that burned in 1957. Traditional construction methods were utilized, including hand-wheeling the bodies over a styling buck and bronze-welding the frames. The aircraft-inspired and Le Mans?tested four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes, riveted two-piece magnesium alloy wheels, and Dunlop tires are all period-correct fitments. Each engine was cast to original specifications, including new blocks and cylinder heads and three Web...
