Jaguar XKSS 4.2-Litre Lynx Re-creation 1969
Superb re-creation of legendary limited-edition Jaguar
1 of 10 Lynx re-creations
German TüV certified
The car we offer is one of an exclusive series of only ten such replicas made by Lynx, and one of only three built in left-hand drive configuration.
All Lynx cars are bespoke and made only to order, making this an exceptional opportunity.
This particular car was built using a 1969 E-Type Series 2 donor car, which contributed its engine, suspension, brakes, etc.
Built to full XKSS specification, the car was completed in 2015 and registered to Lynx Motors (International) Ltd in Germany as a new car with TüV certification (paperwork available).
Maximum power is 270bhp at 4,500rpm, which is transmitted via a Getrag five-speed gearbox.
Dunlop 16" wheels with spinners
D-Type instruments and switch gear
Steve McQueen-specification XK SS seat cushions and glove box hatch
Detachable steering wheel
Monza-type fuel cap
Stainless steel luggage carrier
Removable side screens
Authentic under bonnet detailing
One of the rarest Jaguars of all, the XKSS was a spin-off from the D-Type racing programme.
To satisfy sports car regulations, the D-Type had been built in numbers greatly exceeding the demand for such a specialised piece of racing equipment, and conversion to road trim was viewed as the best way of clearing unsold stocks, hence the XKSS.
Modifications to make the D-Type acceptable for road use included installing a seat and door on the passenger side, fitting a full-width windscreen, and heat-shielding the side-exit exhaust system.
A mohair hood and detachable side screens provided weather protection, and, as twin fuel tanks and the spare wheel occupied the boot space, a luggage rack was provided on the tail.
The 3.4-litre XK engine remained pretty much to racing specification, producing around 250bhp, which, in a car weighing just 18cwt, made for electrifying performance.
Sadly, the loss of a number of bodyshells in the fire at Jaguar's Brown's Lane works in February 1957 severely curtailed the XKSS programme, with the result that only 16 had been made by the time production ceased in November of that year.
An instant icon, the XKSS was enjoyed by a privileged few, among them movie star and all-round motor sports enthusiast, Steve McQueen.
Original examples are today worth up to £10 million.
Like many other legendary sports cars, the Jaguar XK SS inspired a number of imitations.
An acknowledged master in this highly specialised field is the Sussex-based firm of Lynx Engineering, which enjoys an international reputation for accuracy and quality second to none.
Of riveted aluminium sheet, the coachwork conforms to the original method of construction.
Unlike the 3.8-litre original, this Lynx XKSS is powered by a rebuilt 4.2-litre XK wet sump engine incorporating 'fast road' specification camshafts; a ported and gas-flowed cylinder head; and triple Weber 45DCOE carburettors.
Finished in gloss black with contrasting red leather interior, this exceptional XK SS replica is worthy of the closest inspection.
