It’s official. To commemorate what was lost long ago in the Browns Lane factory fire, Jaguar is going to make the famed 1957 XKSS available next year for nine very lucky, and wealthy, collectors. It’s all thanks to Jaguar’s Classic division and they’ll be the first genuine set of XKSS’ supercars built in over 60 years.

Each of the nine specified vehicles will be made as an exact replication of the 1957 original, including the magnesium alloy for the bodies. They also come equipped wth Dunlop disc brakes, and Dunlop tires wrapped around riveted two-piece magnesium-alloy wheels. And you can’t forget that rumbling 3.4-liter six cylinder D-type engine that provides this puppy with 262hp. Collectors will also appreciate the original recreations of the car’s Smith gauges outfitted in the dash, a wooden steering wheel, and handsome leather trim. Each one will be hand built with an estimated amount of 10,000 man hours invested in each build. Needless to say, you’ll have to shell out around $1.2 million to get your hands on one of these.
