Wait, why is a 700 horsepower, 241 mph prototype so... easy?
That's a question explained by the extremely British car writer Chris Harris, driving this extremely British Jaguar XJR-9/XJR-12, and talking with extremely British period racing driver Andy Wallace.
Maybe it's something about the manual five-speed, maybe it's something about the huge naturally-aspirated V12 that makes this thing so straightforward to drive.
This particular car raced at Daytona back in '88, then returned and won the 24 hour race in upgraded XJR-12 spec. It was one of the last great Group C cars, making it one of the last great sports racing cars, making it one of the last great race cars, period.
Whoever buys it is a lucky bastard.
