Chassis: JV6 C 291
Although there is no chassis number on the car today, it is generally believed that the second Jaguar XJR-16 (291) was rebuild as the XJR-17 over the 1991/1992 winter. In its original guise, it was piloted by Raul Boesel and Martin Brundle with three fourth places as the best results. Intended for use in the FIA Cup or IMSA Lights championships for use in privateers, the XJR-17 was available with a 3.5 litre of 3 litre version of the V6 engine respectively. To compensate for the considerably lower levels of power available, the front and rear aero was toned down considerably.

Only one car was ever built and it was readied for Le Mans but after two tests in the hands of Win Percy the project was abandoned. The car was never raced until recently when it appeared in several Group C revival races. It is seen here during the 2003 RMU Classic at Spa Francorchamps.
