The AKSS is a recreation of the Iconic 1957 Jaguar XKSS,
Manufactured by JFG Classics in partnership with AK Sportscars as a factory build only option,
The AKSS builds upon 30 years of experience from its sister company, AK Sportscars, who have achieved an unrivalled reputation in the quality, reliability, and durability of their AK-427 Cobra replica.
The AKSS follows the beautiful flowing lines of the original Jaguar XKSS to produce a replica faithful to the original timeless design.
Powered by 4.2 litre Jaguar 6 cylinder engines tuned to ensure that rapid progress can be made with ease on the open road. Yet with a wide power band to allow fuss-free urban driving.

Fully independent bespoke suspension on all four wheels ensures that the driver can explore the dynamic abilities of the car to the full whilst retaining a comfortable ride on longer journeys.
Each AKSS is an individually hand-built vehicle ensuring limited production.
