Jaguar XJR-9 Owners’ Workshop Manual £25
Far from offering advice on how to change the plugs on your Jaguar XJR-9 (chances are you’ve probably got your own pit-crew if you’re lucky enough to have one of these Porsche-beating Le Mans-winners in your garage), this new hardback gives a colourful and detailed insight into how the TWR-influenced project came about. It then goes on to give details of how it was designed and developed, its race history and a comprehensive glimpse under its wedge-shaped fully carbon-fibre monocoque and bodywork – a first for an endurance racer, by the way.
Author (and former motoring journalist and Porsche GB Press and PR Manager) Michael Cotton’s knowledge is extensive – factor in loads of historical photos, backed up by current images of the XJR9LM that won at Le Mans in 1988 (now owned by the Jaguar Heritage Collection), and this is a must-read for fans of the marque.
