It seems like Jaguar, as of late, has been “nostalgia-ing” pretty hard on its racing history. A prime example of that would be the wonderful Project 7 we saw last year. But what if Jag really wanted to push the racing envelope? Maybe make a return to Le Mans? This is how they should do it.
It’s called the Jaguar XJR-19, and it’s the prettiest endurance car you’re ever going to see. It’s only a rendering, sadly, but artist Mark Hostler, who created the project, truly believes that this is the car that will put Jaguar back in the winner’s circle.
According to Goodwood Road and Racing, like many of its endurance counterparts, the XJR-19 features a closed cockpit and an extreme aerodynamic design.
Under the hood is a hypothetical 2.7-liter diesel V8 with both an exhaust-driven turbo, and an engine-driven supercharger.
To go with that twin-charged diesel V8, the concept would adopt a KERS hybrid system and regenerative braking.
It all sounds like something everyone wants to see. Are you listening Jaguar? Good.
