Description

The last teamwork of Tom Walkinshaw in partnership with Jaguar was the XJR-12. This racer was meant to replace the successful Jaguar XJR-9. Just like its predecessor, the new racing car was created capable of racing both in the Group C endurance prototypes and in the IMSA series in the USA. Now our Pete Dials is telling its story with this beautiful Jaguar XJR-12 poster art.

Jaguar XJR-12 Castrol Poster

The Jaguar XJR-12 came around arguably at the pinnacle of the Group C era. Under its sleek body lurked a 7.0 naturally aspirated V12 engine capable of 730 horsepower. It propelled the Jaguar racer up to 219 miles per hour at Le Mans, despite the chicanes introduced on the Mulsanne straight in season 1990. This was the year when XJR-12 became the winning car at 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Martin Brundle, John Nielsen and Price Cobb. It relied on the proven V12 engine used for the Jaguar XJR-9 LM, even though the XJR-10 & 12 relied on turbocharged engines. Unfortunately, they were too fragile to handle the load of 24 hours endurance competition.

In 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans, Jaguar XJR-12 covered a distance of 4882.4 km at an average speed of 204.03 km/h with maximum trap speed of 353 km/h. 18 years later, in 2008, the car won the Le Mans Legends competition. But above this all stoods the XJR-12` win at 24 Hours of Daytona in 1990.

Now you can make this beautiful Jaguar XJR-12 poster art yours, thanks to Pete Dials artistic skills and accompanied by the impeccable print quality delivered by Simply Petrol team.

Peter has now returned to “drawing” cars stemming from his passion in racing and his interest in the graphic design of racing liveries.  His focus has been on creating illustrations of iconic liveries and the cars they were applied to.  Peter focuses on the shape, lines, colors, and shadows to create a clean and simplistic but eye-catching illustration.  Peter also creates detailed illustrations of whatever car inspires him at the time.
