Steve McQueens Jag

Steve McQueen is the epitome of badass. He raced, drank, swore and fought his way to fame and fortune, and he did it by being ‘Muricas badass. He joined the Marines, went AWOL, and STILL wound up guarding President Harry Truman (his yacht at least). I will be publishing a piece on Steve McQueen here shortly, but in the meantime, here is a quick little video about one of his Jag’s.

The Jaguar XKSS is an incredibly rare car. In 1957 a fire broke out in Jaguar’s own Browns Lane production plant, destroying all but 16 of the cars, most of which were sold in the US. The one in the video was Steve McQueens, which he bought for $5,000 dollars way back in the day. Today it is worth over $30 million.
