One of the most scarce Jaguar species on display in Tokyo

Not felt if the year 2020 has entered its second month, but still not visible from the automotive world stretching related to the emergence of new stars from world-renowned automotive manufacturers. However, it turns out there are still some stars of the past that are able to attract the attention of automotive enthusiasts.

As we can be seen in a video show from Supercar Blondie's YouTube channel. Which features the figure of a scarce supercar made in 1994 by the British automotive manufacturer Jaguar known as the Jaguar XJR-15 LM which was seen on display at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 held in January 2020.

The presence of this rare supercar at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 side by side with the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR looks very surprising to the public because almost decades have never appeared to the public, so not many people knowing its existence.

And the birth of this supercar is inseparable from the emergence of its road-legal predecessor Jaguar XJR-15 made as much as 53 units in the period from 1990 to 1992 by Jaguar Sport, a subsidiary of Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) that specifically makes the fast cars for racing purposed or under special requests of among the Jag's rich enthusiasts.

This car was built in 1994 as a continuation of the XJR-15 series and was made specifically made for use in racing circuits only. Only 5 units (three in dark green, one in white and one in the same blue as the standard car which is believed to be the prototype) were built by using the V12 engine with a capacity of 7.4 liters that's the same engine of the XJR-9 racing car. This engine is capable of producing abundant power of up to 700 horsepower.

Besides being presented in a greater amount of power than the standard XJR-15, and it also has very different appearance. And bodywork alterations include a larger rear wing, an additional front splitter with air vents in the middle, a modified engine cover with additional vents in order for additional engine cooling and an air intake situated on the roof to aid in cooling the larger engine.
Maybe because of the small amount, so not many people know the whereabouts of these super cars and reportedly all of them were sold in Japan to a single buyer. And then the blue one was bought by a car collector in the UK sometime after 2013 making it the first XJR-15 LM outside of Japan, thus making the existence of such a variant known. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | JALOPNIK | GT PLANET | GIZMODO.AU]
