    Schuppan 962CR

The Schuppan 962CR was built by former Le Mans driver Vern Schuppan as a tribute to Schuppan’s 1983 victory at Le Mans and the 1989 All Japan Sports Prototype Championship title. The 962CR is essentially a chassis recreated by Schuppan to resemble a modified, street legal version of the Le Mans-winning Porsche 962 racecar.

The model was limited to only five units, and each one was was entirely new since Schuppan manufactured his own chassis and body based on 962 designs.

The supercar was powered by a 3.3 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine with an output of 600 hp at 7000 and a peak of torque of 479.4 lbs-ft at 6800 rpm. It features a 5-speed manual transmission. The car’s top speed is 230 mph (370 km/h), and it has a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.5 seconds.

The only element of the car manufactured by Porsche is the engine, which was the air-cooled, 3.4 liter, twin turbo version, incidentally, assembled in the United States for the 962C North American IMSA-spec cars. The chassis and body were built entirely by Schuppan. The car was built in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England by Modena Wycombe with Japanese backing, and at least two of the cars were shipped to Japan.

At just over US$1.5 million in 1994, the Schuppan 962CR is the second most expensive vehicle ever sold new. The 962CR is the only car Schuppan ever made.
