Members of Ecurie Ecosse – the famous Scottish race team that won the worlds most prestigious automobile race – LeMans 34 hours twice in the 1950s with Jaguar D-types headed to Jaguar’s Browns Lane factory in 1967 to discuss repeating their success. During the visit, they spotted the XJ13, a protype. Powered by a new quad-cam, 5-litre V12 engine, the XJ13 was Jaguar’s first mid-engine car. Filled with excitement, the racing team knew they had a potential winner in their hands. Sadly, due to circumstances beyond their control it remained unraced.
The what ifs must have haunted Ecurie Ecosse, as five decades later they prepare to launch the LM69. Remaining true in spirit to the design and style of the fabulous XJ13, and keeping the quad cam V12 engine, the heart of the car, this beast is ready for the track and its road legal. Limited to just 25 cars, owning a LM69 is truly exclusive.
