Owner seems very cool and has some really nice Jags. So glad someone who really enjoys these and will drive them owns them.

I don't think I've see a wheel shaped like that before... and cool the gear stick is on the "right" side—for us Yanks at least!

This is really one of a kind. It feels good to see how it was properly preserved

That is actually my old XJR-15. Sold it to Jas a few years ago. I wrote an article on it a while ago: MY JAGUAR SUPERCAR STORY ? THE XJR-15 ? Karenable Reviews & Secret Supercar Owner Blogs

Wonderful car.

Yup and you need to drive it like a race car.

It doesn't look particularly happy being driven gently but I bet it is magnificent driven hard.

And just so damn beautiful.

No, you can't drive it gently at all. Under 2500 rpms it is very unhappy, needs to be north of 3500 rpms and over 40 mph before it starts to flow.

The XJR-15 should be featured on Jay Leno's Garage shortly. Jas had the car there for filming recently.

The Leno XJR15 video is up!!



The lust factor for that car just went up a bunch...not that it was ever low to begin with.

Owner is an enthusiasts enthusiast!

If you read this thanks for sharing your car!

The HP just called this one of the most underrated supercars of the 90s. But it sure seems like there's been plenty of interest of late. If this keeps up? I'll never be able to afford one. Ha ha!

The owner, Jas, is a terrific guy and I thought did a really nice job on the video.
