This vehicle was hand-built by Tempero Coach & Motor Co. of New
Zealand, which creates body work for some of the world's most
desireable cars. Faithfully duplicating an original 1957 XKSS, this
recreation is based on a 1966 Jaguar E-Type chassis, with aluminum
bodywork and equipped with a 4.2 liter Jaguar XK engine with triple
Weber carburetors and a five-speed gearbox. The electrical system
features modern-specification fuse relays and wiring for enhanced
reliability. The cockpit is trimmed with rich red leather seat
inserts and includes a padded dash and a floor console, while the
floor and side panels were left bare to revveal the beautifully
crafted aluminum. Today, original examples of the XKSS rarely come
to market, and when they do, they easily command multi-million
dollar bids. This excellent recreation by Tempero is a very
enjoyable alternative at a fraction of the cost. 300 bhp, 4,235 cc
Jaguar XK DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, triple Weber
carburetors, five-speed manual gear box, independent front
suspension with double wishbones, torsion bars and anti-roll bar,
independent rear suspension with lower wishbones, trailing lower
radius arms, coil springs, and four-wheel hydrualic disc brakes.
