Bob Tullius welcomes us to the Mitty at Road Atlanta in 2012. I talk to the driver of the XJR-7 there and then talk to the keeper of "The Mag Jag", XJR-7/005 This car raced once, at the 1987 SunBank 24 at Daytona. Drivers were Tullius/Hurley Haywood and John Morton. The car was a DNF with an engine failure. After that, they started to rework the bodywork on the car. Also, knowing the contract with Jaguar was not going to be renewed, they re-engineered the car to accept a Chevy V-8. The name 44 Magnum was picked as the car had a 7.0 liter magnesium block V-12 motor installed. Was one of only 3 of these motors that were built by Jaguar. A new motor is in the car now, as the fluids were left in it from the last time it ran in 1995 and the magnesium has corroded beyond repair. Basically, everything under the bodywork is XJR-7. When talking with Bob Tullius, he referred to it as the XJR-8.
