Production runs are sometimes limited arbitrarily. Tragedy limited the run of the XKSS. When the Browns Lane plant went up in flames in 1957, it destroyed the remaining unfinished chassis, leaving only 16 examples in the wild. This 1957 Jaguar XKSS was one of them. The winner of many Canadian sports car events from its delivery through 1961, it continued to see success on the track until it was acquired by its current owner almost 20 years ago. It has since undergone a show-quality restoration, yet retains its original chassis, body, and engine. As one of few remaining original examples and the first of its kind to go under the gavel in over a decade, this is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the world's most sought-after classics.
