It was difficult to build XKSS in modern conditions so that the car corresponds to the specifications of the original model in 1957.

Under the hood will be installed row “Six” D-Type volume of 3.4 liters with capacity of 262 hp. The engine will get entirely new cast-iron block, alloy cylinder head, new and three carburetor Weber DC03. New Whiskey Style Interior From Vilner Studio For Jaguar XJ. You Gonna Like It
