The XJ-R9 LM, a purpose-built derivative of the XJ-R9, was the right tool for the task. In 1988, the Silk Cut TWR Jaguar team put an end to Porsches streak of seven consecutive victories and re-established Jaguar's reputation in an instant by taking the top honors. The "leaping cats" from Coventry, England were back with a vengeance!
Recreated from a digital master consisting of over 4,000 3D reference points, every aspect of the Jaguar XJ-R9 LM is precisely and faithfully recreated, accurate to within .006"! New technologies have been employed, breaking new ground in the die-cast world.
Each Jaguar XJ-R9 LM replica features a die-cast zinc metal body, tub and belly pan with opening doors and removable rear bodywork. This wonderful new replica is suspended on a functional race-tuned suspension and active steering. Rubber-like Dunlop slick tires with race-scrubbed surface adorn miniature wheels with machine turned valve stems.
The interior is purposeful, like the real Jaguar XJ-R9 LM, and as carefully replicated as any other area of this ferocious racer. The doors open in true-to-the-original butterfly motion on specially developed ball joints to reveal a simulated carbon-fiber seat shell with suede-like covering, fabric seatbelts with photo-etch metal fastening hardware, and acres of glassed carbon-fiber finish.
The thundering 7-liter V12 Jaguar engine is fully wired and plumbed, using genuine braided hoses, rubber hoses and simulated anodized high-pressure fittings. Furious details like photo-etch metal on the valve covers and individual fastening hardware on the exhaust headers add a crispness and realism that will make you think you can feel the heat rise off this hot motor!
