BONUS PHOTOS: Spark 1:18 Dauer 962 Le Mans

BONUS PHOTOS: Spark 1:18 Dauer 962 Le Mans

Dauer’s answer to those drivers who dream of hammering a race car down the open highway is this 962. Sure, it’s been prettied up, and it’s had a few creature comforts and safety features added, but under the leather and added finery is an honest-to-gosh race car, right down to the 720-horse boxer motor.

We took these snaps of Spark’s excellent 1:18 resin of the Teutonic terror for our “Showroom” section in the Spring ’12 issue of DCX, but didn’t have the room to include them all. The model’s a sealed-body piece – as most 1:18 resins are, for the sake of a more refined display on the shelf – but as you can see, every visible area has been done with a careful, precise touch. It’s a beauty. Want to know more? Contact Sunrich Toy and Hobby, who supplied us with this sample.

Enjoy the snaps.

  1. Do not care for it. It looks a kit car.

  2. Hello, Bob –

    The real cars are no kit cars – they’re actual Porsche 962s that have been stripped, rebuilt, and made (somewhat) civilized. The price tag is around $1,200,00.00 each!

    The model is extremely well done – sharp castings, very good external (and visible interior) detail.

  3. I’m a fan of the great 956 & 962s, can’t wait to get my hands on this one! Just wondering if it’s a sealed body shell or does it have opening parts?

    1. Hello, James –

      It’s a sealed model, but you can see virtually all of the interior detailing thanks to the clarity of the “glass”. We’ll be doing a video review of this one shortly, but if you like it you might not want to wait! Thanks for visiting DCXmag.com.

      – Joe
