Often referred to as the first supercar ever built, the Jaguar XKSS is the unicorn of many classic collectors. In 1957, nine models were produced and slated to be exported to North America before being lost during a fire at Jaguar's Browns Lane factory in Britain, and those nine people awaiting the instant classic never received their models. Just last month in Los Angeles, Jaguar unveiled the first XKSS model to be built in almost 60 years. This model took 18 months of research and developing, which will then be used as the blueprint to reconstruct the nine missing XKSS models that never made it in 1957.

The "new original" XKSS, as they are calling it, is built to stay true to the design and materials of the time. Using archive drawings and modern technology, the Jaguar Classic Engineering team was able to produce the XKSS as closely as possible to the original. The Soul of the new original XKSS is a 3.4-liter straight six-cylinder engine that produces 262-horsepower, making this XKSS the apple of any motor enthusiasts eye.

This reproduction of the classic Jaguar vehicles of the past is a reminder of the hard work, effort, and innovation that Jaguar engineers have been putting into their vehicles for over half a century, and continue to install in every one of their vehicles today.
