One of the last Porsche Factory 962s ever constructed, chassis #962-170 was specifically ordered by Japanese racing team TRUST in 1991 in FIA World Sportscar Championship configuration. The motor was a 3.2L, one of the latest and last ever fitted by Porsche to a 962. Now, the whole car is for sale…

The car was used by TRUST for just a few hours of on-track testing before being shelved for unknown reasons. Chassis 962-170 has never seen the rigors of racing, and has never been modified.

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 12.51.42 pmThe bodywork was a high down force prototype, and it looks incredibly menacing. It has been completely restored and race-prepped by Canepa, and is now fully sorted and race ready. The sellers describe this car as being as close as one will ever get to a brand new 962.
