1991 Jaguar XJR-15: Britain’s Fervent Feline



In this week’s Made to Drive episode we fold ourselves into the cockpit of Jasbir Dhillon’s 1991 Jaguar XJR-15 to experience one of the rarest and rawest supercars built in the 20th century. Aimed at transferring the Le Mans-winning XJR experience to the road, just 53 examples of the XJR-15 were produced with the help of Tom Walkinshaw under the banner of Jaguar Sport, and only 27 were optioned for road use. Powered by a beautifully shrill six-liter V12, it’s a lesser known but no less sexy staple of 1990s supercardom, and one of the finest examples of a “race car for the road,” of any decade.

    Funny…that's Leipers Fork Tennessee. He is driving on the Natchez Trace Parkway which has a very staunch speed limit of 55 miles an hour. I know that because I live fairly close to there

    I sincerely hope that in 20 years time we will see a video of his son, now all grown up talking about how his dad got him into cars, still driving his dad's XJR-15 and enjoying every moment.

    This is the kind of guy I like to own these sorts of cars, he appreciates everything about them, not just an investment or show piece
