1991 Jaguar XJR-15
The Jaguar XJR-15 was a special project of the highly successful Tom Walkinshaw Racing Team and only 28 road-going examples were manufactured. Built to celebrate Jaguar's victories at the 1987 Daytona 24 Hours, 1988 LeMans 24 Hours and the Group C World Championship, th XJR-15 has few peers in its focus as a street legal race car. The carbon fiber chassis is shared with the LeMans-winning Jaguar XJR-9 Group C prototype, along with a version of the same race-bred, naturally aspirated 6.0 liter V12. The carbon fiber bodywork was penned by Peter Stevens, who also designed the McLaren F1.
The exclusivity and price, around $1,000,000 when new, made the XJR-15 one of the most exclusive cars of its era. This example, Chassis 025, is one of only three examples finished in yellow. Originally sold in Japan, this XJR-15 was displayed at a Jaguar showroom and then placed in a private collection until recently when it was discovered and imported to the United States by the team at The Cultivated Collector.
