Jaguar is about to drop one of the coolest "new" release of the year and it's not their spectacularly impressive Jaguar F-Type SVR. It's a completely hand-made 2016 Jaguar XKSS, built to the exact same specifications as those made in 1957. Yes, you read that ride.

Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said: "The XKSS occupies a unique place in Jaguar's history and is a car coveted by collectors the world over for its exclusivity and unmistakable design. Our continuation XKSS reaffirms our commitment to nurture the passion and enthusiasm for Jaguar's illustrious past by offering exceptional cars, services, parts and experiences."

Only nine cars will be built, replacing cars lost due to the Browns Lane fire, with a price tag expected to be in excess of £1 million. We can't imagine how tough it would be to actually get behind the wheel of one of these things, but we're in complete envy of the mover and shakers that FIO and snag one.
