It has just been revealed that the upcoming Jaguar XKSS D-Type will officially be unveiled in
November, around the same time the 2016 Lost Angeles Motor Show will be taking place.
If you’re not familiar with the story, here’s a little recap. Back in 1957, Jaguar introduced the XKSS.
Only 25 were ever produced; however, 9 of them were lost in the Browns Lane factory fire. Only 16
ended up being sold, with the original plans never materialising.
Now, fast-forward to March 2016, when the brand announced that it would be bringing back the
XKSS in the form of the XKSS D-Type, of which only 9 examples will be built, each priced at over
It’s great to see Jaguar closing a chapter that started nearly 60 years ago. Not many brands would go
to such an extent to finish something they have started such a long time ago, which is why Jaguar at
least deserves to be praised for that.
Although, much hasn’t been revealed about the upcoming car, we don’t even know whether it will
differ from the original, its debut has finally been announced for November of this year.
In a couple of months, the vehicle will be showcased, after which it will reportedly go on sale. It’s
unknown at the moment if the nine vehicles are already accounted for or not; however, that’s likely
the case. Limited edition cars are often offered to past customers, so the XKSS D-Type will probably
never be offered to the public.
Although, we won’t be able to get our hands on the new vehicle, it will be very exciting to see what
the brand has in store for us. It’s going to be interesting to see how different the new XKSS D-Type is
to its predecessor.
We’re very much looking forward to seeing the new Jaguar XKSS D-Type in all its glory this
November, but until then, we’ll have to enjoy pictures of the original to keep us excited.
