August 2017 News Round Up

Jaguar XJR-15 at the City of London Concours 2017


Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month, as Xclusively Jaguar celebrates it’s 9th anniversary, I am now so busy travelling the UK attending various Jaguar meetings and events, and preparing our Jaguars for those events, that finding the time to report on them all is becoming more and more difficult. I hope to report on some of the major events and happenings in due course, but have had to keep everything to a minimum for the moment, and apologise for this!


This month our cover picture features an Jaguar XJR-15 at the City of London Concours 2017. Proud owner, Rod Leach sent us this picture and commented thus:

My 1991 Jaguar XJR 15 was invited to participate at the inaugural City of London Concours on June 8/9, at the Honourable Artillery Company’s Headquarters near Moorgate.

This is a veritable green oasis – with nothing to show from the outside – in City Road, Shoreditch, surrounded by old and new office buildings.

80+ cars were on display in 10 classes, covering everything from Veterans to brand new Supercars.

My class was ’Supercars Part 1’ and my Entry Number was 44 – highly appropriate as the Chassis No. of my car is … 044!

But the element of competitiveness was missing, there being only a single overall winner for the entire entry list (1937 BMW 328).

However the Show’s Organisers told me that my XJR 15 was the most beautiful of all of the 20+ Supercars on display – which I greatly appreciated!

Despite heavy overnight rain which extended till lunchtime on the second day, the whole event was very enjoyable and the hospitality (free to entrants) in much abundance!

Hi Letitia,

Thanks once again for the Newsletter. It’s a great read once more and one of the highlights of the month when it comes into my inbox.

Hi all,

Just want to acknowledge this website again. As some of you will know I have been trying to compile an XJ40 data base (not to be used in competition or publish on a personal website – its just a project to keep me busy), and Xclusively Jaguar have some great info regarding the 40 and has been a great resource to help me correct errors and fill in gaps, as well as get rid of info that was gathered from other sites that speculate and try to pass off as fact. Lots of great info in the facts section (top right corner of the home page) on not just the XJ40 but all Jags

Thanks again to Letitia for adding such useful and accurate info to your site, has been a great help to my research.
