The last remaining car of our Porsche DLC #2 needs no introduction.
The Porsche 962 C Team Joest

It is one of the most recognizable sportscars ever built.

It appeared at the start of 1984, replacing the 956 in order to comply with IMSA's GTP regulations.

It would later also compete in the European Group C series.

This specific 962 was developed by Joest Racing, who nicknamed it the "Doppelflügel", "Double-wing", in reference to its new rearwing, and is equipped with a 5-speed gearbox, a 750 HP twin-turbo charged engine at an approximate weight of 950 kg, producing top speeds close to 350 km/h.

This wickedly-fast prototype is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 770 HP, which in low-downforce configuration and a weight of 950 Kg can lead to top-speeds upwards of 350 km/h. The R90CK was developed from the R89C. The "K" letter that was added stands for "Kaizen", which is japanese for "Improved".

Group C cars are widely considered the most spectacular sportscars ever built in motorsport history.

I feel quite excited by this, (not good for me at my age:D). Reminds me of how I felt when the GTP mod came out for NK3.
Now if only Toyota, Jaguar XJR-9, Mercedes C9 and Mazda could put in an appearance my cup would be full to overflowing.

Great addition, loving the historic IMSA GTP/GTO cars.
Perhaps we’ll be lucky and get 1 or 2 more GTPs to join them someday.
Definitely instabuy on day one.

Bubbling over with this one, hope it gets fattened up with a few of the other cars, like the Merc & Mazda, cannot wait to see what they sound like, V8, twin turbo, over 700bhp, gonna sound bloody awesome!

I had the same thought about the GTP mod:thumbsup:
If the 2 mentioned group C cars ACTUALLY is introduced in Raceroom I would consider buying some of the virtual monopoly money to get them.;)
The 4 GTP cars from the GTP mod would be a dream.
Hehe but probably only stay as a dream:roflmao:
