Another one from 19Bozzy92.  This is the big kahuna for Jaguar fans, right around the end of the Group C era.  Presenting the 1990 Jaguar XJR-12.  You will hear more stories about this car, and some of the races it competed in.  Stay tuned for that.

This video is about a Jaguar XJR-12 Group C car in action at Spa-Francorchamps circuit during the 2017 Spa Classic event organized by Peter Auto.

The car is chassis #J12-C-190 and it was built in January 1990 for that year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was then raced for several years in the States an then it was retired to the TWR Museum. In 2003 XJR-12/190 was bought from the museum and has been regularly raced in the historic Group C series.

The car is powered by a 7.4-litre V12 engine which was able to produce 750 bhp. Listen to it screaming around the track!
