This fabulous Vaillent-sponsored Porsche 935 has a factory built (Dyno sheet to prove) 962 twin turbo, twin plug, flat fan that develops 806 horsepower, with torque to match. Built upon a 1976 Porsche Carrera 2.7 liter chassis by Ekkehard Zimmerman’s Design und Plastik Company in Cologne, Germany (he designed and built the bodywork of the 935K3), probably around 1985 (perhaps earlier), this DP935 was first of all driven by Jurgen Schorn and then by Jurgen Opperman.
Both men used it in German 3-hour long distance races (Langstreckenrennen), mostly around the Nordschleife (the old 14 mile circuit at the Nurburgring) but sometimes at Hockenheim, and at Zolder in Belgium. The car notched up a great record, scoring fifteen overall victories, four second and three third places.

Rabl was sponsored by Vaillent, and so the car was repainted in their colors and Rabl won two European Hillclimb Championships with it.
