Porsche 962-107::

Rare Group C and IMSA GTP Competitor

One of the most striking cars ever to compete, 962-107 began its life as 962C-107 competing in the world sportscar championship with the Brun team. The car scored a podium finish at Mugello in its first outing.

After a crash at LeMans in 1985, the chassis was repaired and the car rebuilt to IMSA specifications (which required an air-cooled single turbo engine and other changes). Prior to shipment to the US, Porsche re-designated the car 962-107.

In 2000, 962-107 was meticulously restored to its original IMSA livery. The car was also mechanically updated with modern Brembo brakes, a fresh Garrett turbocharger, and rebuilt 3.2 liter engine (9/12/02).

The car has been lightly used since and is in flawless mechanical and cosmetic condition.
