Just yesterday, we brought you an ultra-exciting clip of Chris Harris driving the 24 Hour of Daytona winning Jaguar XJR-9 at Brands Hatch. Well it turns out that very XJR-9 is set to be auctioned off at the RM Auctions Amelia Island event this coming March.

Just two examples of the rare Jaguar XJR-9 were created in IMSA specification for racing and this particular car remains the sole XJR-9 in such spec. Chassis #388, it took victory in the 1990 edition of America’s premiere endurance race.

The car wears a Castrol and TWR Engineering livery and beneath the skin can be found a V12 of no less than 7.0-litres and delivering a total of 690 hp. Combined with an overall weight of just 893 kg, the Jaguar XJR-9 can rocket all the way to a 368 km/h top speed.

Pre-auction estimates suggest the car will sell for around $3 million.
