    I got bored so I've done some digging on the history of these cars, here's what I've found so far.

    50 made, 16-18 racing versions depending on who you ask, some even say either 31 or 37 were made in total rather than 50.

    001 - Racing Version - Race Number #1 - Matt Aitken's car from the race series - Still wears that livery, and was for sale in Las Vegas in 2008 http://www.carpictures.com/Jaguar/-XJR-15-First-of-50-Built-1990-08CBE490127743
    003 - Racing Version - #3 - Andy Evans - Still wears that livery, owned by Vijay Mallya, at his collection near San Francisco
    004 - Racing Version
    010 - Road Version - In the US
    011 - Racing Version - #4 - Bob Wollek - Still wears that livery, for sale in 2008 - http://www.carpictures.com/Jaguar/XJR-15-1990-08BOF115315946
    016 - Road Version - In the Uk
    020 - Racing Version - #11 - Derek Warwick - Still wears that livery
    022 - Racing Version - #16 - Ian Flux - Originally went to Japan, sold by Bonhams but can't remember when.
    027 - Racing Version
    029 - Is in the UK, can't remember if it's road or race.
    037 - Racing Version
    047 - Racing Version - #5 - Tiff Needell - Currently just the same blue as the road car, for sale on virtually every exotic car sales site by seemingly different people.
    049 - Road Version - Blue - Sold by RM in Monaco this year, was owned by Lindsay Fox and stored in his collection in Australia.
    050 - Road Version - Blue - Originally German.

    There are problems with tracking cars.

    This is one of the Japanese cars, potentially a racing version but you never know.

    Looks like it's been cannibalised by the university of Tokai to make an LMP car, they used the XJR-15 to test the engine they made, but I've no idea what's happened to it now.

    Here's another Japanese car, and it's been repainted green. For sale last year with this company, no idea about it now.

    Then the ZAZ Museum has a blue one

    The famous orange version is often referred to as 001 but I don't think it actually is, also referred to as Tom Walkinshaw's personal car so perhaps it's the original R9-R prototype?
    It's supposedly for sale here, but the lack of information and generally untrustworthy look of the site would suggest otherwise.

    Anyways, if anyone can contribute with pics and more information on the XJR-15 then this thread could be fairly decent...or it could just turn into a typical SC.net thread and die out without anything.
  2. 9 and 46 are in the abode of peace.
  3. Cheers basman007, any chance you could share more on the cars you mentioned? PM me if it's private stuff.

    44 looks like an original road car? Wheres it located?

    EDIT - I've got 44 down as Switzerland?
  4. Sorry, I have no info saved with these pictures. At least not in the folder I found them, perhaps somewhere else... but I don't have high hopes...

    PM here doesnt work. But I saw you on TS last week, so I could allways reach you via that forum.
  5. Press Package
  6. I've seen so much more regarding this car than Ive got saved in my Jag folder <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

  7. Saw this car on Sunday
  8. Chassis #050.

    That car, and it's story is what sparked me into searching these cars. Glad to see the owner is getting to grips with it.

    Are you the same Alan from the XJR thread on Fchat?

    It took me a while to realise what you meant here.

    Just taking a look at your image here.


    Just me, or does that look like KE88 as the registration plate?

    According to the list of cars posted ages ago, that'd make it chassis #009.

    I'll send you a PM on TS tomorrow mate. Cheers for your help so far.
  10. love this car.
  12. I remember seeing one in '92 in Dothan, Alabama in someone's driveway. Totally a wtf moment.
  13. Man - I thought tracking F1s was difficult with the number of silver ones that exist. You're insane if you think you'll be able to do this with 40+ blue XJR-15s.

    That being said, best of luck and here's pics I have of 004.

  14. Several photos of 011 as well.

  15. Here's pics of 020.


    EDIT - 3rd pic with the silver gear lever does not belong - sorry.
  16. Here's another image of the green one that was not on the Japanese website you linked to. Can't help at all with the number.

    Then another one with unique body mods - someone must have the details on this car for sure.

    One image of race #15 - no idea on the chassis number.

    A pair of shots of race #17 with a massive wing.

  17. Another pair of images of 001 wearing #1.

    Some images of race #7 - no idea on the chassis number.

  18. which chassis was used in Need for Speed High Stakes showcase?
  19. These photos were taken at Brooks auction in 1999. I don't know the chassis number but maybe that detail will help to figure it out.

  20. Maybe this is 016? Its a road version registered in the UK anyway.

  21. Photo from August 2003 RM Auction in Monterey of 049 before it was purchased by John O'Quinn.

    I have maybe a dozen more small photos of this car from earlier in the year when I believe Mike Sheehan was trying to sell it. Let me know if you want them.

  22. This is one of the Japanese cars - probably the one in the ZAZ Museum.

    Pics are from 2004 or earlier.
