1990 Jaguar XJR 15
The XJR-15 uses the same central monocoque as the XJR-9 designed by Tony Southgate. It is constructed of lightweight composite materials including carbon fiber and Kevlar. XJR-9 suspension was retained all round with fabrication wishbones and horizontally mounted pushrod spring damper units at the front coil springs at the rear. Four pot AP Racing calipers mounted to disc brakes are housed completely within the wheels to maximize width of venturi tunnels. The engine is a 450 bhp liter alloy, dry sump V12 engine constructed to Group C specification ( Cosworth froged alluminium pistons, forged crank and rods). Fuel is delivered via Zyrtec electronically controlled, sequential fuel injection. The transmission is a TWR six speed, straight cut transaxel matched to a triple plate carbon AP clutch. The car weights in at 2,315 lbs. Top speed is 215 mph.

The car came to United States in 1993 and has resided in a private collection. It remains in its original livery. The car has been maintained in full racing condition.
The XJR-15 is considered to be Jaguar's ultimate supercar. It is thought to be amongst the most beautiful Jaguars ever produced, ranking alonside the C type, D type and XJ13 in its aesthtic appeal. Of the 50 total cars produced, only 23 were constructed to racing specifications. Sreial # 011 represents an outstanding example of the competition model.
