32. 1957 Jaguar XKSS

There are few more iconic photos of a man and his car than American actor Steve McQueen in his 1957 Jaguar XKSS. McQueen had its painted British racing green and called it the “Green Rat” which isn’t exactly the most flattering nickname for this four-speed manual transmission beauty. The tragedy of the car is that in February 1957, a fire at the Browns Lane plant damaged or destroyed 9 of the original 25 cards that had reached completion or were nearly there. The remaining 16 were mostly sold in the US.
