Tom Walkinshawconceived the concept in 1988, ollowing Jaguar's success at Le Mans, nlistingPeter Stevensto develop a road-going version of theXJR-9, riginally designated as R-9R. A number of wealthy racing enthusiasts were keen to own such a car and pressed Walkinshaw into manufacturing a 'road going racer'. Original owners includedDerek Warwick,Bob Wollek,Vern Schuppan,Matt Aitken, ndy Evans and the Sultan of Brunei.In order to adapt the XJR-9 for road use, tevens made a number of modifications to increase space and improve access. "Taking the race car as a base, e widened the cockpit by 75mm (3.0in) and raised the roof by 40mm (1.6in) to allow more headroom" he said, hen interviewed in 1991."The scale model was ready by Easter 1989, rom there we went to clay...which was finished by October (1989). The first prototype was held up by Le Mans preparations but it was ready for Tom (Walkinshaw) to drive when he came back from France in July 1990."TWR explicitly developed the XJR-15 as a road-going racing car, n the mould of the Jaguar C and D types, he Ford GT40 and the Ferrari 250 GTO. As such, he car complied with British construction and use regulations and could be registered by the owner for road-use in the UK, lthough with such a limited production run, he car was never type approved.The car's production was announced in a press release on November 15, 990 with an official launch at Silverstone early in 1991. XJR-15 was built by Jaguar Sport in Bloxham Oxfordshire (a subsidiary of TWR)Englandfrom 1990 to 1992.
