Schuppan Porsche 962 CR Road Car For Sale At mph '05

A surprise late entrant to the mph ’05 live motoring spectacle running at Earls Court in London until Sunday is a street legal Porsche 962 CR converted from one of the 1993 Le Mans winning team cars by Modena Wycombe for race winning driver, Vern Schuppan who started the 962 CR project by buying the race cars from Porsche.

The mph ’05 car is number four in a series of five and even though it complies with Euro IV emissions standards, still provides around 85% of the race cars performance - that’s a top speed in excess of 220 mph and 0-60 mph in under three seconds.

The stunningly beautiful 962 CR is the result of a £5 million research and development project which focused on styling, chassis, suspension, steering, brakes, tyres, fuel and exhaust adaptors. Whilst no price is published for the sale of the car, the third in the 5 car series sold for £1.3 million into a private collection in Japan.

The car is on display in the entrance foyer of Earls Court, acting as an apt scene setter for the various super cars on display and the live theatre which promises many world first stunts hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and Tiff Needell.

Tickets and more information about the mph ’05 Show can be found at www.mphshow.co.uk
