1988 Jaguar XJR9-LM

The 1988 24 Hours of Le Mans saw Jaguar win the famous race with an entry of five XJR-9 cars. The winning car, driven by Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace, completed 394 laps and covered a distance of 3313 (5332.79km).

The XJR-9 was manufactured by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and they had manufactured a 7.0-liter V12 capable of producing 750 bhp, it was this power unit which drove the XJR9-LM. Five cars equipped with this unit were prepared for Le Mans to take on the might of the factory-backed Porsche 962C. The Jaguars led from the start of the race, but two retirements meant only the XJR-9 of Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace remained to take overall honors. Late in the race the car developed a transmission problem meaning it could only be driven in fourth gear, even so it still managed to finish two laps ahead of their main rivals - the Porsche 962C.

This will be a full detailed build depicting the winning No. 2 driven by Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace.
