Best road going Le Mans car?

Which of these do you think is the best road-going version of their racing counterparts?

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.

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

Certainly some of the other cars weren't given the publicity they deserved, but still the F1 for me. Sometimes the most famous is still the best.

i like the dauer as a silly choice, prank supra's on the highway and stuff.
but the F1 has to be the best actual 'road car' there?

I'da thunk a 917 would be better to prank supras but there never was an official street version, just a couple of converted race cars (one from a badly crashed chassis).
