JAGUAR E-TYPE V12 GROUP44—A TALE OF TWO CATS

With Jaguar E-Types sitting unsold and unloved at dealerships and docks in the US by the mid-’70s, British Leyland US needed to come up with a plan of action. It was the start of a racing campaign that would end in total victory at Le Mans a decade later. But before that, there was the epic Bob Tullius, Group 44 E-Type Jaguar that started it all—and it’s coming to Project CARS 2 in all its V12 goodness.

​In February 1975, William Jeanes, in a piece for Car & Driver Magazine entitled “Demise of the Cat”, wrote about two Jaguars that were scheduled to appear at the SCCA National Championship production class race at Road Atlanta.
