That car looks like a couch on wheels.

They were building replica's here - selling to rich overseas owners at around $1m.

A couch? /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

Well - it is a 2000lb 780bhp couch.... :nod: so to keep up your Viper will need around 1350hp /images/graemlins/laughing.gif that'd get you alongside on the straights...

but then around a track for cornering and stopping - the 962 would be breath-taking - being so light and with ground effects etc.

Definitely probably the fastest car ever built that was road legal - if you count fast as being a combination of straight line speed and road course times.... I beleive it is a race 962 that holds the outright record at the 'ring in Germany....

SWEET!!!
What year(s) were the 962 built?
What was the production number(s)?
What did they sell for then?
What are they worth now?
(Sorry for all the questions.)

The Dauer was Porsche's way of getting around legislation that was phasing out the Group C prototypes in favor of production-based GT cars, and this 962-based "road-going" racer was the perfect car for that. Once again, the spirit of the rules take a beating at the hands of the letter of the rules.

And some people say the Viper looks like a kit car! Jeeez.... It would be a real sleeper if you get an exhaust that sounds like a VW!
