Leica M6 Jaguar XK

As one of the rarest Leica limited edition M6 cameras made, the Leica M6 "Jaguar XK" edition is a very uniqe pieces.  The "Jaguar XK" camera was made in an edition of only 50 units, to commemorate 50 years of production of the XK automobile. The camera is covered in British Racing Green Connolly leather and the top plate engraving is filled with the same color of paint. The wood presentation box is the same burl wood used in the Jaguar interior.   These were commissioned by Jaguar in 1998.  Most of these were sold to Jaguar VIP clients but the remainder sold through normal Leica channels by word of mouth only.  The only press release was the internal Jaguar postcard announcing the Jaguar and Leica collaboration to celebrate the XK.
