'Road-Legal Porsche 962' Owner and Collection

This quote got me:

Quote:
He offered to take us to the warehouse where the rest of his cars were kept without a typically Japanese warning of Im the poorest in my group of friends.
Read the entire write up and view the collection HERE.

To get into details about the owner Moroi-san, he was featured in an old Motorhead video, which showcased Le Mans cars. The vehicle was also featured in a Top Gear episode. The 962 definitely stands out from his entire collection, which he bought as is. It was originally a Schuppan 962 (2 of 5/6 made by Vern Schuppan in Australia).

Quote:
Being an early car, the tub was constructed from a composite, much like the racing cars. The previous owner had swapped out the curvy and awkward Schuppan body in favor of a race-spec body with the full Rothmans livery. Moroi said the previous owner used to commute from his home in Numazu to his office in Ginza, a four-hour round trip. Every effort has gone into making this car as comfortable on the road as possible it even has air-conditioning. Moroi has owned the car for 15 years and says he has enjoyed driving it on both the street and the track.
