Jaguar XJR16 #191 & #291
Jaguar had already experienced success with the XJR9 and 10 in the US IMSA series in 1989 and 1990 so at the start of the 1991 series they re-entered with two XJR 16s (#191 and #291) intending to beat the Toyota Eagle and the Nissan to the title.
Overall, the XRJ-16 relied on its predecessor when it came to the chassis, however there were several changes to the design (the rear half of the car being the most notable). The suspension was revised entirely and the use of steel uprights featuring bell crank/pull rod suspension. The car's newly-developed two-tier rear wing provided immense downforce without drag. The car is still powered by a 3000/3500cc twin turbo V6 producing over 800 horsepower.
#191 being the more successful of the two 16s with 4 victories and finishing 3rd in the Championship. It was driven by David Jones, David Brabham and Scott Pruett.
Both of the 16s are eligible for many interesting events such as Peter Auto Group C Championship which races at Spa, Paul Ricard, Silverstone and other famous Grand Prix circuits. It has also ran at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Le Mans Classic.
A very competitive car during my ownership and has undergone extensive development (including vehicle wiring systems and ECU's, chassis dynamics by GSD and engine deveopment by Advanced Engine Research. The car currently has up-to-date certificates (fuel tank, crack testing etc) to allow entry to future events.
The engine and gear box have covered 200 miles since complete rebuild on chassis #191. Everything on #192 has been completely rebuilt but is un-used.
Both cars are fitted with heated glass screens
Jaguar XRJ16 #191 and #291 are both superb examples of Jaguar's racing programme. They have a continuous history with all the required documentation to enable them to be raced around the world in historic Motorsport events.
If required XRJ10 (which was used as a back-up car in 1991) is also available. This would give a rare and unique opportunity for an enthusiast to purchase virtually the whole of the team equipment from that period.
I have attached a YouTube link of a race at Monza filmed by the driver of an XJR14. If you fast forward to 6 minutes into the Video, you will see me overtake him in the XJR16 #191.
