Listed: 1990 Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-12 Group-C

After qualifying in 7th place, the Silk Cut Jaguar team’s quartet of XJR-12s were looking strong at the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans—especially once the fast qualifying Nissan R90CKs faltered. Ultimately only two of the distinctive purple and white sportscars made it across the finish line, though finish they did—taking a historic 1-2 for the marque.

Taylor and Crawley have listed chassis 12-C-190 for sale, the #4 car as raced at the 1990 classic:

Chassis 190 was shaken down at Silverstone by Andy Wallace and the first race was Le Mans in June. Crewed by Davy Jones, Michel Ferte and Elisio Salazar, #190 lined up 7th on the grid, the fastest of the four car Jaguar team. The 7.4 litre 750bhp V12 topped 220mph on the Mulsanne in spite of the new chicanes and lapped at nearly 140mph. Running well up for the first half of the race but on Sunday morning a long pitstop for repairs to the nose and brakes cost it time and subsequent stops for the same problems dropped it down the order to 12th and at midday it was retired.

Price on application.

Street driven Porsche 962 in Japan

Luke Huxham, Maiham Media:

The Group C Porsche 962 is an iconic race car to say the least. In the 80’s it won countless Le Mans races and to this day holds a very special place in car enthusiasts hearts. One particular Japanese car enthusiast loves this car so much that he can’t keep this race car restricted to circuit duties only. He feels the overwhelming need to spend much more time with it, on the streets!

With plates and a full-fat Rothmans livery? Badass.
