Historic car enthusiast Mark Evans goes behind the scenes at Jaguar’s state-of-the-art Classic Works, to witness the complete resurrection, from scratch, of the first of its legendary lost supercars. The XKSS is an automotive icon: a road-going conversion of the race car that dominated at Le Mans in the 1950s. Only 16 were ever built and Steve McQueen owned one of them. Today they are among the most sought-after cars in the world, worth around £15 million a piece. Jaguar has never built an XKSS from scratch before. This is a true engineering adventure and a world first.
