Two spectacular Group C cars have arrived in RaceRoom!
The Porsche 962 C Team Joest needs no introduction. 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, and also raced in Europe. This specific 962 was developed by Joest Racing, who nicknamed it the “Doppelflügel”, 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.
Joining the Porsche is the Nissan R90CK. The legendary Nissan R90CK is a Group C race car built for competition in the World Sportscar Championship (WSC) in 1990 and the North American IMSA GT Championship later on.
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”.
The Porsche 911 Carrera Cup (964) has arrived as well! It was manufactured between 1990 and 1994 and used in the Carrera Cup series during those years. The car is equipped with a 5 speed gearbox and a 3.6l flat-six engine producing 250+ HP. The timeless design of the 911 sillhouette, its playfull driving properties and the unique engine note make the 964 an all-time Porsche classic.
