Jaguar celebrates its 75th Anniversary this year and looks forward by looking back at one of its most iconic and coveted models, the Jaguar XKSS. This is the first time the Jaguar XKSS has all been together in the same location since they departed from the factory. All 12 out of 16 surviving cars were in attendance, including style icon/actor, Steve McQueen's 1957 Jaguar XKSS, which he had affectionately dubbed, "The Green Rat". Back in 1950s, McQueen paid five grand for his Green Rat, sold it in the 60's. After regretting it, he bought it back later. McQueen's XKSS has been residing at the Petersen Automotive Museum until it came out for the reunion with its siblings at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. images via: The Luxist//Motortrend
