    Best road going Le Mans car?

    Which of these do you think is the best road-going version of their racing counterparts?
    I am the most humble person in the world and no one is going to tell me otherwise.

    The Dauer. Completely underrated as a supercar.

    Half of those are arguably road going cars though.
    I'd actually like to know how many miles they have no their odometers.

    I also don't know what to judge them on - it's not as though anyone wrote a review of many of them.

    I remember reading a review on the CLK GTR. It was a race car, period.
    I also remember a Dutch journalist went out of track (Hockenheim iirc) just before the Italian journalist turn. Damages to the front bonnet, 20.000 € worth.

    I know the obvious choice for most would be the F1 LM, however my vote goes for the Dauer 962. For a car that good and that fast it's amazing to me that it gets/got so little publicity.

    Possibly if Dauer didn't embark themselves into the EB110 business they could have given this car much more attention/publicity.

    McLaren F1 LM. My favorite of the bunch personally.
    Buy a car for you, not for other people

    A shame they never made a Street version of the 911 GT1 Evo.

    It's a very lowly documented car, so I don't know exactly of the REASON for it, but I do know that it was a race car refitted to be run on the road, with inertia reel seat belts and several other safety features being the main changes.
    It's also chassis #001, which evidently was deemed unsuccessful enough to be converted.

    It's owned by the Porsche Museum and I photographed it in that shot at a local dealer when it was doing a tour of Australia.
