Hire a Jaguar for Photoshoots, Film and TV
(Jaguar XKSS Replica)

Want something very different for your film, TV or photoshoot? A Jaguar XKSS hire could be the perfect solution. Due to its rarity its unlikely to appear in any other production or advertising.

The Jaguar XKSS is the forerunner of the E Type. It is the road going version of the Jaguar D Type. So if you’re looking for a 1950s sports car hire, its much more in period than the E Type.

This iconic Jaguar also has that perfect classic race car look. The D-type was built purely as a race car, specifically to win at Le Mans. The E Type, on the other hand, was built as a road car. So the E-type is a road car that was raced but the XKSS is a race car used on the road.

The D-type made Jaguar famous. Having won the Le Mans 24 hour race three times in the 1950’s, Jaguar withdrew from racing to concentrate on the E Type. However. they still had 16 unused D-types left in the factory so they decided to convert them into super sports road cars. They added rudimentary weather protection, bumpers and a full sized windscreen, but made very few other changes. They called this road going version the XKSS, and they were the forerunner of the mass produced E-type Jaguar.

Our car is a factory built LD/Ram/Realm XKSS replica with chassis designed by Adrian Reynard of F1 and Indy car fame. It has Jaguar running gear featuring a Jaguar 4.2 engine and Jaguar suspension with disc brakes all round. It has a 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive, Dunlop racing type wheels, fibre glass bodywork with aluminium fascia and under bonnet fittings. The dashboard and seats are in tan leather and it has a woodrim Motolita steering wheel.

Because of their rarity an original XKSS is now worth around £5 million, with the one owned by Steve McQueen considerably more. So if you want to feature something very photogenic, affordable and very unusual then our replica Jaguar XKSS hire car is the car for you.
