Among the most widely respected Jaguar experts on the planet is the Sussex-based firm of Lynx Engineering, which enjoys an international reputation for accuracy and quality second to none. Founded by Guy Black, Chris Keith-Lucas, and Roger Ludgate in 1968, Lynx began as a repair and tuning shop specializing in Jaguar C-Type and D-Type racing cars. In 1972, Lynx began constructing D-Types built from Jaguar’s production E-Type, as well as the XKSS, using the same master coachbuilders to create both.
This Jaguar XKSS was constructed by Lynx in the 1970s and is one of an exclusive series of only nine such cars made, ordered new by legendary car hunter, enthusiast, and racer Colin Crabbe. Working closely with Lynx founder Chris Keith-Lucas, Crabbe special-ordered the car with special cams, pistons, crankshaft, and 3.8-liter dry sump engine. In addition to the performance upgrades, Crabbe had the car’s foot-well area recessed two inches, allowing his 6-ft. 5-in. frame to fit comfortably in the car. Crabbe raced the car at Goodwood for several years before selling it to Aston Martin CEO Victor Gauntlett. Subsequently, the current owner purchased it, where it has been part of his collection for nearly 20 years, accumulating less than 7,000 since new.
With low mileage, superb pedigree, and in exemplary condition, this Lynx-built XKSS represents a unique opportunity to acquire a car ideally suited for vintage racing, rallies, and exhibition.
