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.

    He had a really good point in there. These machines bring people together, break barriers and unite us.

    Oh man, that last downshift at the end! This car not only sounds incredible, it is absolutely beautiful. As always, incredible filming and production as well.

    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
