Imagine this, you’re hopping into a 1991 Jaguar XJR-15 in the year 2023 and you catch a whiff of that new car smell. As you wrap your fingers around the steering wheel, you notice the odometer only shows 153 miles and the car is in pristine physical condition, inside and out. 

Although you may be wondering if you somehow discovered time travel, this vintage Jaguar XJR-15 is really in like-new condition. It gets better. This particular 1991 XJR-15 is available for sale. That means this is a very rare opportunity to add one of the most exclusive classic Jaguar supercars to your collection.

As one of only 27 road-going, street-legal examples built, this is a very desirable collector’s car. It is not the kind of car you buy to put some miles on but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to. After all, it is literally a production version of the successful Group C Sports-Prototype Jaguar XJR-9 race car.

Fire up the 6.0L V12 engine and you’ll discover at least 450 more reasons why you want to take the XJR-15 for a spin. It produces 450 horsepower, sending the raw naturally-aspirated power to the rear wheels for your driving pleasure. Listen to this super cat purr and just wait until you hear it roar.

Jaguar was far ahead of its time when deciding to release the XJR-15 to the public. In fact, it is the very first road-going car to feature the use of carbon fiber in the construction of both the body and tub. Even the suspension system comes directly from the XJR-9 race car and the AP Racing four-piston brakes provide plenty of stopping power.

Tucked away and hidden from the public’s eye since 1991, this XJR-15 will need a full mechanical rundown before operation. This kind of maintenance is normal for a car that has been sitting in storage for a while. It will be worth the wait. From there, resisting the temptation to take this 1991 Jaguar XJR-15 to the track will present its own set of challenges for the lucky buyer.

If that sounds like the kind of problem you want to have, you know what you have to do. You might want to bring a blank check with you because there will be plenty of interest in this XJR-15 from other collectors and enthusiasts.

Adding this supercar to your collection is like owning a piece of Jaguar’s legendary racing heritage for yourself. Not a bad way to spend seven figures if you can swing it.
