The Jaguar XK-SS is the road going version of Jaguar's legendary D-Type race car. At the end of the 1957 race season Jaguar faced a problem as they still had several D-Types that remained unsold. Chances are that they would not be competitive next season due to new racing technology coming out. They ended up converting them to road cars. Steve McQueen is one of the lucky few who was able to purchase one of these rare cars. Today there are approximately 16 remaining making them very valuable.
This car would make a wonderful addition to the existing Mini Cooper, Ferrari F40 and Volkswagen T1 sets. It contains many clever building techniques and is dark green in construction (British Racing Green!) It has a highly detailed six cylinder engine and a detailed interior.
