The Rare 1991 Jaguar XJR-15 Supercar Is Listed For Sale In The U.K.
Updated February 7, 2017
The amazing XJR-15 is one of most well-crafted Jaguars of all times. Day after day, these rare machines are getting harder and harder to come by with some of the superior 53 examples having been modeled between 1990 and 1992, with Peter Stevens who was the man after the McLaren F1 design, and Tony Southgate, the racing engineer, getting themselves the first original models. The primary intent of the XJR-15 creation was to perform in the famous one-make racing series known as the Jaguar Intercontinental Challenge.
Most of the cars that got sold from the collection of the 53 were mostly featured in the UK and Middle East collections. These cars had all sorts of owners that included songwriter and record Producer- Matt Aitken, the Sultan of Brunai, and even racing driver Derek Warwick. However, only a few of them have made their way from the garage into the market. This 1991 example has been listed in the UK.
The XJR-15 still maintains the original 6.0-liter V12, and it’s suitable for 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) and is well capable of handling 420 pound-feet (570 Newton-meters) of torque. When it was new, the XJR-15 was known to reach up to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and would even elevate much higher to a top-rated speed of 191 mph. This was up until the XJ220 came on to take its place, having the Jaguar breaking the 200 miles per hour mark featured in a road car.
