A few more details ........

Faced with financial oblivion in the early 1980s, Jaguar turned to racing (and an American racing team) to turn its image around. Jaguar hired the Group 44 team of Bob Tullius to build and race a new-from-scratch sports racing car in IMSA and LeMans competition, to pursue Jaguar's belief that a successful racing effort would give the brand a new glow. The XJR7, the subject of the second installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph Series, was the ultimate evolution of Group 44's V-12 Jaguar racer. With it, Jaguar and Group 44 not only took the fight to Porsche's dominant Porsche 956s and 962s; they also created one of the most beautiful and striking race cars of the 1980s.

i do agree, Group 44 was amazing, i lived in Daytona at that time, and spent a lot of time at the Daytona race track, and its road course!

couple pix left over 1985-1987.

truth be known, one afternoon a driver of 44s car hauler pulled up in front of my business, in Daytona, and lowerd the ramp and inside was the 1987 race car, YES very exciting times!!
