Jaguar XJR-15 for sale

In the late 1980s, Jaguar was firing on all cylinders. It won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and achieved many victories in the World Sportscar Championship. Banking on this success, Jaguar decided to build a track-ready, race car-based supercar for the road. That car was the XJR-15.

The XJR-15 was an ultra-exotic, extremely exclusive road car based on the successful XJR-9 and XJR-12 Group C cars. It used the same carbon fiber monocoque, suspension, AP Racing brakes, and 450-horsepower V12 engine.
Jaguar built 53 examples of it's '90s supercar. A road-going example is for sale on Classic Driver in the U.K. with an asking price of around half a million dollars.
