We have the pleasure to offer this gorgeous and iconic Jägermeister livery Porsche 962C for sale.
The Porsche 956 replaced 935 as Porsche’s bread and butter sportscar for the privateer and after the success of the factory cars, Porsche unsurprisingly built and sold a lot of 956s. The only drawback the car had was that it couldn’t be raced in the IMSA GTP class as the foot pedals were beyond the front-wheel centreline and to overcome this, Porsche added 6 inches to the length of the chassis, hence the type number, 956 + 6 = 962.
The 962 proved even more popular than the 956 now that the American market had opened up with Porsche building 95 examples. And if you wanted to build your own 962 using a chassis of your own design and build, Porsche were quite happy to help you as long as you bought all the mechanical parts from them, used the 962 windscreen and cabin shape, and called it a Porsche 962.
Several teams built their own chassis and another 55 cars were privately built. Eight of those cars were built by Brun Motorsport using a honeycomb chassis of their own design which was fabricated and built by John Thompson of TC Prototypes in England.
This particular car, 962-006BM was built fresh for 1989 and ran in a variety of liveries depending on what sponsorship arrangements were in place to satisfy a sponsors requirements for a particular race but for most of the season, the car wore the familiar orange livery of Jägermeister, who had been Brun’s primary sponsor for some time. The car's race history is listed further below.
This Porsche 962C is equipped with the latest aero-package, a 3.2 liter water-cooled engine and MOTEC engine management. The car is in spendid condition both technically and cosmetically. Everything on the car is current and it only needs a new fuel cell (comes with the car) and crack testing to go and shine on the race track. The car comes with several sets of spare wheels and miscellaneous running spares.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a proper Jägermeister Porsche (which must be one of the best looking car liveries ever) in a latest specification 962C race package thereby being a welcome and competitive entry into the newly invigorated Group C racing series. ..... for more information visit www.RMD.be
