OUR RACING MILESTONES

XK120

1948 - 1954 – SILVERSTONE AND LE MANS

An all-new sports car, and the test-bed for the revolutionary Jaguar XK engine, the XK120 is ranked the fastest production car in the world. In 1949, the XK120 takes the checkered flag at Silverstone and a year later, three XK120 models make their debut at Le Mans. It’s the beginning of a new era in motor racing.

C‑TYPE

1951 - 1953 – LE MANS

In 1951, aircraft engineer Malcolm Sayer joins Jaguar and brings with him aeronautical discipline and excellence. His first collaboration, the C-Type, wins at Le Mans and second-car driver Stirling Moss breaks the lap record. In 1953, the C-Type wins again at Le Mans and takes three of the top four places.

D‑TYPE

1954 - 1957 – LE MANS

Bad weather robs the D-Type of victory at Le Mans in 1954, even after recording a shattering top speed of 170 mph. However, the streamlined car fights back to win in 1955, 1956 and 1957 – a year in which it takes five of the top six places. The D-Type remains to this day one of the most successful racing cars ever built.

XJS

1975 - 1996 – ETCC AND SPA 24 HOURS

In 1982, under the banner of TWR, British racing driver Tom Walkinshaw enters a team of V12 XJS models into the European Touring Car Championship and claims several wins in the process. Walkinshaw goes on to take the 1984 ETCC Drivers’ Championship and in the same year wins the prestigious Spa 24 Hours.

XJR-9

1983 - 1991 – DAYTONA 24 HOURS AND LE MANS

The XJR closed-cockpit cars prove formidable on the world’s long distance endurance circuits – and none more so than the 1988 XJR-9. The V12-powered supercar is driven to victory at Daytona 24 Hours and then Le Mans, where driver Martin Brundle and Jaguar respectively land the Drivers’ and the Manufacturers’ Championships.

R1 to R5

2000 - 2004 – FORMULA 1

Jaguar’s foray into Formula 1 sees ex-Ferrari driver Eddie Irvine take a number of podium places during his tenure. The team also serves as a training ground for acclaimed Australian driver Mark Webber. Owned and engineered by Ford, Jaguar develops three cars that all run on the Cosworth V10 engine.

I‑TYPE

2016 – FORMULA E

Inspired by our racing heritage, and powered by a collective of established racing engineers and super-bright technicians, Panasonic Jaguar Racing and the incredible I-TYPE 1 enter Formula E: courageous, competitive and raring to race.

I-TYPE 2

2017 – FORMULA E

The introduction of the I-TYPE 2 saw Panasonic Jaguar Racing record their most successful Formula E season to date, with numerous top-10 finishes. Built for grueling city circuits, the I-TYPE 2 delivered up to 200 kW (270 bhp) and went from 0 to 60 mph (100 kph) in a blistering 2.9 seconds.
