Car to be at auction 9/15
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1969-lynx-jaguar-xkss

Auction description:
Lot 255
Registration: TBA
Chassis Number: P1R 431038W
Engine Number: 7R 38911-9
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 4200
Year of Manufacture: 1969
Estimate (£): 220,000 - 250,000

The XKSS was produced following the decision made by Jaguar to pull out of all motorsport at the end of 1955. Sir William Lyons converted their 16 remaining 'D-Types' to road going specification for the American market, by adding a passenger door, a full-width windscreen and wipers, an exhaust heat shield, side-screens, a folding roof, bumpers all round, a luggage rack and rear light clusters. It was to become a complete icon of the era, an outstanding and good looking car driven by the privileged few, including movie stars of the day such as Steve McQueen. Values of the original cars range from £8-£10 million today, if you can find one.

Highly respected Lynx Motor Cars was founded in 1968, and quickly made its name restoring and maintaining original C-Types, D-Types and E-Types of the period. Their decision to recreate D-Types and XKSS versions based on Series II E-Type engines and running gear was a logical one, based entirely on their experience with the original cars. Since then over 430 cars have passed through their workshops, either as recreation projects or original cars being restored or maintained. They have built ten XKSS versions over the years, of which only three (including this one) have been left-hand drive. Their cars are bespoke and only made to order, making this a very special and rare opportunity.

Offered here is a chance to own one of the finest XKSS recreations, built by the Lynx factory to their highest standards and specification, with over 3,000 hours of labour and total attention to detail. Based on a 1969 4.2 Series II E-Type suspension, brakes, engine and gearbox the car was completed in 2015 having been converted to full XKSS specification. It is registered as a 1969 Jaguar XKE under German Historic TUV papers and converted to XKSS specification by Lynx Motors International Ltd. LYNX MOTORS will ensure the car can be converted to other Nations registration documents and are happy to give every assistance, if required, during this process.

Finished in Jaguar Gloss Black with complementing Jaguar Red leather interior the car is built on an aluminium monocoque with hand rolled aluminium panels, a rebuilt XK 4.2 litre, six cylinder wet sump engine utilising double 'fast road' specification camshafts, a ported and flowed cylinder head and triple 45 DCOE Weber carburettors:- producing 270bhp at 4,500 RPM.

A Getrag five-speed box delivers all the power smoothly and having just a few test miles under its belt, comes to the sale with a 12 month Lynx warranty, from which the privileged first owner will benefit. Equipped with a full-width screen, Dunlop 16" wheels with spinners, authentic D-Type instruments and switch gear, Steve McQueen specification XKSS seat cushions and glove box hatch, a detachable steering wheel, Monza-style fuel cap, seat belts, stainless steel luggage carrier, removable side screens, black hood and authentic under bonnet detailing.

What an outstanding, rare and exciting opportunity to own an iconic and truly beautiful piece of Jaguar history.
