Description of the winner of the Monaco race VIN 020

​The Jaguar XJR-15 was the brainchild of Tom Walkinshaw, built by Jaguar Sport a joint venture of Jaguar and TWR, between 1990 and 1992. The car was based on the XJR-9 that won the 1988 Le Mans 24 hours. It was also the first carbon fibre/Kevlar road-going car beating the McLaren F1.
Built for a new race series Ĺthe Intercontinental Challengeĺ with production totalling just 53 examples, the XJR-15 was a two-seater V12-engined sports car producing 450bhp from its six-litre alloy, dry sump V-12 which had a Cosworth forged crankshaft, connecting rods, aluminium pistons and fuel delivery via Zytec electronically controlled sequential fuel injection. The transmission was a TWR six-speed transaxle with straight cut gears, which was matched to an AP triple-plate carbon clutch. Due to its lightweight construction the car weighed just 2,315 pounds which gave it a top speed of 215mph with excellent power-to weight and superb handling made this a formidable race car.
The 3 race series which offered a winner takes all $1,000,000 prize took place at Monaco, Silverstone and Spa-Francochamps as a support race for Formula One.
The example offered here chassis 020 is one of the 16 examples to actually compete in the Intercontinental Challenge driven by Derek Warwick,
and the only car who won Monaco, the biggest and best race to win !
it completed all 3 races without accident. It has just benefited from a complete no expense spared professional restoration undertaken by one of the foremost race preparation companies in Belgium ( Bernard de Driver ) . Recent work has involved a total strip back to the bare tub, complete mechanical disassembly and overhaul of all components including engine, gearbox, suspension and steering.
With a well-documented period competition history and offered in race ready condition it provides a fantastic opportunity to acquire one of these iconic Jaguar Sports racers.
Only one and the best one
