    The Porsche 962 is a legend in Group C sports-prototype racing, having being raced by such legends as Derek Bell, Jochen Mass, Mario and Michael Andretti in such iconic races such as Le Mans and Daytona 24 hours.

    Constructed over a 4-year period, between 2001 and 2005, by ex Sauber Chief Engineer Ernest Schlaepfer in New Zealand at a cost of 2m USD. The car was built utilizing a sanctioned by Porsche Aluminium Fab Car IMSA chassis. Equipped with an exquisitely finished full carbon fibre "long tail" body, leather trimmed bucket seats with six point harnesses, air conditioning, collapsible steering column and detachable Momo racing wheel.

    Quite possibly the most amazing road car in existence this represents an extremely rare opportunity to own a road registered example, complete with valid UK V5 document and MOT certificate

    Approved by Le Mans legend and 962 driver, Derek Bell. The quality of engineering and workmanship is second to none. Perfect panel gaps and immaculate throughout and most recently was tested by ex Formula 1 and Le Mans driver Slim Borgudd who gave the car a most satisfactory thumbs up.
