I took this photo of the 1990 XJR15 in 2002. Then I saw the racecar again at the Mallya Collection a few weeks ago. It's small and beautiful with a narrow cockpit. It's a shape derived from the needs of racing.
Behind it in the collection is a 1994 XJ220. This is the Jaguar supercar. Customers paid their deposit on the car thinking they were getting a V12 and awd. The final production car had a 540hp turbo V6 and no awd. The styling was a bit off. Too big with too much front overhang and too much oval styling.
