Jaguar XJR-9 Own­ers’ Work­shop Man­ual £25

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.
