1989 Jaguar XJR-10
Offered by Gooding & Company | Pebble Beach, California | August 16-17, 2019
We’ve featured quite a few of Jaguar’s XJR prototype sportscar racers over the years, and this one fills in the nice gap we had between the XJR-9 and XJR-11. It was used by Jaguar in the IMSA GTP series between 1989 and 1991.
The design is attributed to Tom Walkinshaw and Tony Southgate, and power is provided by a 650 horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. Only three examples were built, and the competition history for this chassis (389) includes:
- 1989 IMSA Portland – 1st (with Jan Lammers and Price Cobb)
- 1989 IMSA Del Mar – 1st (with Lammers)
- 1990 IMSA Lime Rock – 1st (with Cobb and John Nielsen)
- 1991 IMSA Miami – 1st (with Raul Boesel)
Jaguar won the 1989 IMSA GTP championship, and this car competed in quite a few other races with just the wins highlighted above. Tom Walkinshaw Racing (Jaguar’s partner in this endeavor) retained the car until 1999, and it has since been campaigned in historic Group C events. It has also been restored. The pre-sale estimate is $1,500,000-$2,000,000. Click here for more info and here for more from this sale.
