There are nine cars available and each will be hand built to the original specification, including race-spec suspension and a 3.4-litre straight-six engine with 250 bhp. To be comfortable to use on the streets, some racing components of the D-Type disarmed. Winshield and car doors using the new design. Partitions in the cabin and fin behind the driver's seat is removed. Yet overall, the look of the car is still the same with the D-Type.
And then the car will be sold to the classic cars collectors, with the selling price at £1 million or US. $1.5 million, or nearly Rp.20 billion. The XKSS planned will be delivered to the buyer at the beginning of 2017. Are you interested to have one? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GQ MAGAZINE]
