Saleroom Addendum

*Please note that during XKSS 716’s illustrious racing career, previous owner John Harper had the 3.4-litre engine block replaced with a 3.8-litre unit for greater performance. This engine upgrade was made between 1980 and 1983. Jaguar Land Rover has agreed to supply an additional 3.4-litre XKSS engine block numbered for this car, at Consignor’s expense. The Estimate has been revised to $13,000,000 - $16,000,000. Please also note the XKSS is currently transacted on a Bill of Sale, and a certificate of title is in process.
