I suppose the XJR-15 will always draw comparisons to the XJ220: Both mid-engine, rear-drive Jaguar products of the early 1990s with low, swoopy body styling, companion racing versions, low production numbers and high top speeds. Of course, the differences are just as important: One’s bred from a race car, while the other had a race car bred from it; one features a V-12, while the other goes faster with half the cylinders; and one is much, much rarer than the other. This particular Jaguar Sport XJR-15 will cross the auction block at Coys’ Blenheim Palace Auction in Oxfordshire, England on July 17th. From the auction description:
This fine example of the Jaguar Sport XJR15 is chassis number 50, the last of the 50 cars built, the first 30 cars being race cars and the last 20 being road versions. First registered in 2000, it has covered just 680 miles from new and is road legal with German registration papers. Finished in British Racing Green metallic with a black and grey leather interior, the car has had two owners from new and has never been raced. A rare chance for the Jaguar collector! Estimate: £145000 – £165000
