This XKSS was built upon a 1965 Jaguar XKE 4.2L OTS, a car today that in its own right demands both respect and a high premium. The E-Type donor was originally acquired by Lynx for a D-Type build in 1978. This car was assigned number L78/7 and is the seventh Lynx build ever completed. XKE number 1E20379 was dismantled to its purest state, leaving not much more than its chassis and the spectacular drivetrain that gave it life. The artisans at Lynx then set to work fitting an entirely hand-fabricated aluminum D-Type body onto the modified chassis, taking special care to ensure the Lynx D-Type perfectly replicated the original as it would have left Jaguar's factory. Two years after L78/7 was finished, the car made its way back to the to Lynx in order to undergo a second build. Much like Jaguar's original D-Type, L78/7 was carefully combed over by Lynx to convert it to the beautiful XKSS you see today. This is the second of only 9 Lynx XKSS cars to ever be produced and has an extremely well-documented history. It is equipped with the original 4.2L inline 6 engine and close-ratio 4-speed EJ Type transmission, both of which are in spectacular order. The motor receives air and fuel from a trio of Weber 45 DCOE carburetors and performs as one would expect from the original XKSS of 1957. Brakes have been upgraded to Wilwood calipers, stopping the lean 2,030lb Lynx on a dime. The car performs spectacularly, with all the ease of use of a well cared for E-Type and all of the fun of a lightweight, unobtainable piece of racing history. The car has acquired a truly wonderful patina over the years, only adding to its beauty and feeling of authenticity. With this Lynx being as close the original Jaguar XKSS as is physically possible, and with both being wonderfully rare animals, few opportunities will ever arise to own such an iconic piece of British racing history.

Donor car: 1965 Jaguar XKE S1 4.2L I6 OTS with a close-ratio 4-speed O/D EJ transmission

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
