Back into the good old days of Jaguar D-Type – a three times winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans… With 54 roadsters built overall, only 29 had a chance to serve a noble purpose of racing on the numerous tracks and picking up podium places. After the vehicle’s withdrawal in 1956, 25 unsold were to be transformed into road-going XKSS but, unfortunately, 9 of them didn’t make it as the items were killed off by the plant fire.

Today we finally got two pieces of news: a thrilling one says the company sets about reconstructing these remaining in history; not so rosy one reports that they are already snapped up at a price of $1,000,000. Anyway, it doesn’t keep us from enjoying the forthcoming masterpiece.
