This XJR‑15 was a million‑dollar ride

A curious cat, is the Jaguar XJR-15. To appearances, a sleek, sexy supercar from the era that gave us the McLaren F1, Ferrari F50 and Bugatti EB110. In reality, a road-going refugee of Le Mans with as many designs on racing as it had road use. Grand prizes and seven-figure cheques leant the Jaguar Intercontinental Challenge real stakes; a Hollywood-esque mythos, that, along with that howling V12, assured the XJR-15’s place in the pantheon of all-time great one-make racers.
