About the XJR-12
The XJR-12 first debuted in 1990, sharing the same basic non-turbo v12 engine/carbon monocoque base as the XJR-9LM that performed with much success in 1988.
In the year of its debut, the XJR-12 proved well in the 24 hour Le Mans, having high reliability needed for Le Mans without taking away the competitiveness of the machine. While it raced in the 1991 Le Mans also, the machine did not fair too well against the main competitor – Mercedes Benz. Still the machine managed to take second, third and fourth places at various races.
Having reached the pinnacle evolution of the XJR-6 that debuted in 1985 under Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR), the XJR-12 retired to give way to a new generation of machine – the XJR-14.
- a full detailed, multi-material kit featuring white metal, resin, etching, metal turned parts, rubber tires, decals and various cords allowing for maximum representation of the original vehicle.
