We’ve let the big cat out of the bag
A full engine rebuild and tune for the iconic Jaguar XJR-9
In 2019 Bourne HPP expressed its talents in designing, installing and calibrating an electrical system and ECU (Engine control unit) to reawaken the sleeping cat.
An evolution of the design for the XJR-8, the XJR-9 was designed by Tony Southgate, built by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and featured a Jaguar 7.0-litre V12 engine based on the production 5.3-litre engine as used in the Jaguar XJS road car.] A variant of the XJR-9, the XJR-9LM, would be developed specifically for the 24 Hours of Le Mans where the requirement for high straight line speeds on the Mulsanne Straight necessitated a low-drag aerodynamic package.
The XJR-9 was able to take six victories, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where rookie driver Paul Taylor made his debut aiding in the Le Mans triumph, over the eleven race series. Silk Cut Jaguar won the Teams Championship and Jaguar driver Martin Brundle won the Drivers title. Jaguar's success at Le Mans marked the first time since 1980 that Porsche had not won Le Mans, and the first Le Mans victory for Jaguar since 1957. The focus of the design brief for the electronics package was to add as many safety systems such as oil pressure, fuel pressure and lean-on-Lambda monitoring to aid in preserving the XJR9’s original period V12 engine.
