Jaguar XK-SS 1957

British luxury car manufacturer, Jaguar, decided to focus its attention on the XK model and so, came up with the idea of the XK-SS. This model is actually the road-going version of the Jaguar D-Type. The carmaker only had the opportunity to build 16 units of the XK-SS as the Jaguar factory was destroyed as a result of a big fire. The molds of the car were ruined as well and this is why there were only 16 cars developed of the XK-SS model.

The XK-SS is the road-going version of the Jaguar D-Type. Only 16 XK-SS's were built before a fire destroyed the Jaguar factory and the molds for the car.
