Jaguar XJ13 prototype
This is virtual recreation of Jaguar XJ13, car which could have raced at Le Mans 1967. Unfortunately it didn't happen.
In 1971 car was being filmed for E-type commercial. Being driven by Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis it heavily crashed at highspeed. Dewis walked away unhurt. Car body was destroyed.
In 1973 car was rebuilt. Apart from few changes, like fender "brows", it was the same. This mod currently represents rebuilt body.

This project wouldn't have been possible without Neville Swales, director and owner of "Building the Legend" project (visit ww.xj13.eu). Also the book "XJ13 - The definitive story of the Jaguar Le Mans Car" by Peter Wilson. Thank you.
And of course our lovely simulation software - Assetto Corsa. Thank you Kunos Simulazioni, for your awesome software and brilliant modding support.
I want to thank these people as well:
@Deswribilator thanks for a video
@Rolf_Kazamba thanks for pictures
And finally thank you for all the good words and all the likes, these things and all the help kept me motivated.
This is second release of my first model, and it still can improve. How much ? It really depends on your feedback, and interest in this car
1. Issues pointed out by the feedback from you
2. Damage and dirt
3. Animations. Doors, throttle links, engine bonnet.
I'm not going to rush final release. I'd like to collect good knowledge of issues and gain more skill and apply it then. Maybe I'll start to do next car at this moment for that reason.
The team hopes that you will like the car, we sure think it has incredible physics and nice sounds.
