The Fastest Cars In History: 1946 To Now

The Dauer 962 Le Mans was a limited-production sports car built from 1993 to 1997 and based on the Porsche 962 racing car, that just like the Ferrari 250 GTO, was built to circumnavigate racing regulations. Built by German Jochen Dauer's Dauer Racing, a racing version of this car went on to win the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans with the support of Porsche. The bodywork of the road car was replaced with slightly revised carbon fibre and kevlar panels, the under tray was replaced with a flat version for better stability at high speeds, a second seat was installed in the cramped cockpit, and a modified version of Porsche's water-cooled Type-935 2994 cc twin-turbocharged flat-6 produced 730 hp (544 kW) - more power than the regs allowed the real car upon which it was modelled. The first production car debuted at the 1993 Frankfurt Auto Show and after the Le Mans win the following year, at least twelve more examples were built. The car's top speed of 404.6 km/h (251.4 mph) was independently measured, causing Evo magazine to proclaim it the 'fastest street-legal production car in the world.' That's the Le Mans winner pictured above in the Porsche Museum, where its claimed top speed on the placard shows as 365 km/h. Go figure!
