1957 Jaguar XKSS going up for auction next month

Auction house Gooding & Co. expects the 1957 Jaguar XKSS to sell for $16 to $18 million. Jaguar built just 16 examples of this car. It planned for 25, but a factory fire destroyed nine unfinished chassis. It’s been more than a decade since one of the 16 went up for sale.

The XKSS is a road-going version of the racing-oriented Jaguar D-Type. A D-Type fetched $21.8 million at auction last year.
