What if? It’s a question that has dominated the history of the XJ13, a prototype built by Jaguar in 1966 in a quest to continue the marque’s legendary run of success in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Well Ecurie Ecosse have tried to put some of that thinking into production.

We certainly didnt see this one coming, did you? Ecurie Ecosse a company that enjoyed so much racing success with Jaguar have put their talents to producing a fantastic homage to XJ13 and introduced LM69. A wonderful concept,with a very strict brief:

"the design and engineering team would have to adhere to the regulations of the time, and feature only design details and technology that entered motorsport no later than early 1969."

Ecurie Ecosse go on to say:

"As the XJ13 would have done had it been prepared for serious competition use, the LM69 benefits from innovations that appeared during that exciting era. Composite materials have been used, it’s lighter than the original car, and it boasts experimental aerodynamic devices, wider wheels and tyres, and a much-improved engine."
