This model was specifically built for competitive racing. This model was brought into picture in 1957 but did not get to explore its potential as the previous models. The shape was D-type but the model is currently being explored for further potential. The company announced its intention to complete the production of this model in March, 2016. The model was withdrawn from competition in 1957 and the parts used in the production of the model were not sold. In an attempt to modify the model in February the same year, fire breakout destroyed the already manufactured cars making is more challenging to proceed with the production.
Since the model is to be revived, the initial 1957 developed specifications were to be an improvement of the original models. First, William Lyon who was the founder of Jaguar planned to add a door on the passenger’s side. The previous XK series had a fin behind the driver which was removed in this model. The partition which was between the driver and the passenger was equally removed. There were several additions on this model for the purposes of beauty, comfort and performance. This model included the windscreen on both the driver’s and the side of the passenger. There was an addition of roof for the purposes of weather. This roof was folding lust like the other models
The specifications of the engine for this model was similar to the XK 150 3.8 SE model. The specifications were 3781 cc carburetor performance, a top speed of about 219km/h and 12 liters of fuel consumption for every 100km traveled. The improvements made on this car were to improve the appearance and to attract the consumers. Since the performance of the engine was similar, the body of the cars to maximize speed by limiting air resistance was the major focus. The fuel consumption of the XK SS model depended on the performance of the engine as well as the top speed.
