THE LYNX XKSS
THE PINNACLE OF BRITISH ENGINEERING
Without doubt, the Lynx XKSS was a very special recreation of an iconic car. In fact, back in the 70’s the Jaguar XKSS was so special that Steve McQueen himself had one in his collection. In 1984, Steve McQueen’s original Jaguar XKSS was auctioned to his former neighbour Richard Freshman, who knew Steve from his early Hollywood Hills days – for $148,000. Freshman then commissioned Lynx Motors in England to undertake a perfect restoration of the car and insisted that all modifications by McQueen (such as the black leather interior by Tony Nancy and Von Dutch’s glove box) remain fully intact and that the XKSS was safe and operational for road use. Freshman sold the car to Margie and Robert E. Petersen (patron of the Petersen Automotive Museum and founder of Motor Trend) in 2000.
The Lynx Motors XKSS maintains an international reputation for accuracy and quality second to none.
