This is perhaps the most famous and significant Jaguar made between the times of the D Types and their Le Mans wins and the TWR cars who replicated those wins in 1988 and 1990.
Chassis 006 was built in 1982 by Group 44 themselves as opposed to Fabcar who manufactured most of these Dyksta designed cars. It was driven almost exclusively by Brian Redman and Hurley Hayward achieving a number of notable results but most famously winning the 1984 Miami GP.
It was always raced in the GTP as #04 and at Le Mans was #40.
Raced at Le Mans in 1984 and 1985. ACO records show this chassis as the 1985 GTP winner but Group 44ís show it to be the sister car, we will now never really know. This is the only part of its provenance that is uncertain with a full race history supplied by Lanky Fouschee. Its origin is indisputable.
This car was acquired by TWR in 1985 and it can be of little surprise that engine internals are interchangeable with those of the Walkinshaw cars.
The car remained in Tom Walkinshaws personal collection in Group 44 reverse colours / 1985 TWR green and white, until sold in 2000 when it was recommissioned.
It has been raced by an enthusiastic owner ever since with many notable race results including class, overall wins and latterly a 2nd overall in its Championship.
This car is not to be confused with some of the overly restored examples some seem to prefer today running on modern internals and the latest electronics. It retains its original 6L engine (with log book) and is running on its original Lucas Micos engine management (indeed serial #001, the very 1st unit) It benefits from a refreshed engine
new gearbox internals including CWP (By BPA) As such it will be ready to race again or form a part of a collection being an original example (maybe the only original one) and a blue chip investment at a fraction of the price of a TWR car most of which cannot claim anywhere near the fame of this; the most famous Group 44 car of them all.
