Street-legal Porsche 962

MotorHEAD モーターヘッド // Racing In The street : Group C Porsche 962 from on Vimeo.

When I was a little boy, I had a calendar that featured stunning photography of these amazing endurance racing cars made by Porsche.  They were some of the most successful cars in any type of racing and Stefan Bellof set the record at the Nurburgring in a similar 956 back in 1983 – in almost thirty years, no one has ever gone faster around that most challenging race track.

This video, about a 962 that is street-legal in Japan, speaks to all my pre-adolescent fantasies.  I still think this is the most stunning and extraordinary vehicle every constructed.
