Jaguar Racing Car – For Sale to the Public 1956

 In 1956 Jaguar Cars offered the public the opportunity to own a road-going Jaguar racecar with only minor changes being made to the basic 25 D-type racecar chassis’s structure they initially used to manufacture their XKSS ( Super Sports) cars with an addition of a passenger-side door, the removal of the large fin behind the driver; and the removal of the divider between passenger and driver seats.

Cosmetic changes were also made for clients comfort and road legal reasons: a full-width, chrome-surrounded windscreen was added; side screens were added to both driver and passenger doors, a rudimentary, folding, fabric roof was added for weather protection; chromed bumpers were added front and rear, rear light clusters were mounted higher on the wings, and thin chrome strips were added to the edges of the front light fairings.

On the evening of 12 February 1957, a fire broke out at the Browns Lane plant destroying nine of the twenty-five cars that had already been completed or were semi-completed and Jaguar Cars ceased production.

Most of the surviving 16 XKSSs were sold in the US.
