2002 Jaguar XKR Trans-Am

Although not many original peices can be found in the Trans-Am version of the XKR, this is one mean cat. Under the caron fibre body is tubular steel chasis housing a mustang engine and driveline.

The trans-am cars were introduced to endurance racing at the 2002 24 Hours of Daytona. They competed in the GTS class alongside the Dodge Viper, Saleen S7 & Porsche GT1. The Rocket Motorsports trans-Am featured above, ran in 2002 to take the class win at the 24 Hours of Daytona.
