Books - Jaguar XJ13 (Author: Wilson)

Jaguar XJ13  (Author: Wilson)  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
My instinct when any publication declares itself to be the definitive history of anything is to be a little sceptical, but this certainly seems to be pretty in depth and well researched. The author was one of the engineering staff in Jaguarís competition department who worked on the XJ13 project, a car which had been intended to win Le Mans but never turned a wheel in competition. Not just relying on memories, Wilson has had unrivalled access to the archives at the Jaguar Heritage Trust and also called on the memories and scrap books of many past colleagues also involved in the project. Heart of the beast was a special four-cam engine and among the many previously unpublished documents we see correspondence between Sir William Lyons and Colin Chapman discussing Lotus using the engines at Indy, part of ongoing negotiations between the two men for Jaguar to acquire Lotus! Back to the race car project and there is also a frank evaluation of the main opposition the Ford GT40, albeit a road-going version, that Lofty England had managed to borrow, Jaguarís project still a secret at that time. Itís all very interesting reading and superbly illustrated throughout with archive images and reproduced documents.
