Australian race car hero Vern Schuppan constructed the Schuppan 962CR as an ode to his 1983 Le Mans 24 hour win, creating a car using the 962 racer as the blueprint. Even though his company went into bankruptcy less than year after its creation, the 962CR has become a sought-after item among diehard collectors, with only six units put into production and a starting price of $1.9 million USD. The car features a Porsche-designed five-speed manual transmission and Advanced Composite Technology’s bespoke carbon fiber monocoque; it can also produce 600 horsepower. Now, as Carscoops reports, the vehicle has ended up on the auction block.
You can take a look at the yellow, for-sale Schuppan 962CR — which is one of three models currently located in Japan and carries only around 30,000 miles of use — above and check out its auction listing at Bingo Sports.
