 A personal history of the design and development of the legendary supercar

The sensational V12-engined JaguarSport XJR-15 has been called ‘the supercar that time forgot’. In this personal history, Peter Stevens, the car’s designer, offers an entertaining and insightful reminder of exactly what made it so special at its launch in 1990, and why this exceedingly rare car has become one of the world’s most sought-after classics.

Published by Porter Press International, this is a detailed, often humorous account of how a master automotive designer helped Tom Walkinshaw to produce a road car that offered its lucky owners the chance to experience some of the sensations of the famous Le Mans-winning Group C Jaguars. Full of behind-the-scenes detail and anecdotes, it shows how this ground-breaking project produced the world’s first fully carbon-fibre road car.

Limited to 400 copies, all of which will be signed by Peter Stevens, JaguarSport XJR-15: A Personal History of the Legendary Supercar tells the full story of this remarkable project – from the early days of TWR and the Intercontinental Challenge race series that featured famous drivers such as Derek Warwick and David Brabham, all the way up to the XJR-15’s current standing in the classic-car world.
