The Diasio D962R Turbo – A Definitive Driver’s Machine

The D962R Turbo is a unique car, it has the looks of a prototype car of the past from the front angle. Upon inspection this 435 hp machine is a beast built by Diasio. The D962R was designed to be a traditional, solid-built track day car that doesn’t require constant attention in the garage between sessions. Diasio is the name of the man who built this machine and he is just not the boss but the technician of the car as well.

It has two version, This is the D962R Turbo. It has all the features of the standard D962R, but adds a Garrett G35 Turbo, Tial 44mm external wastegate, intercooler, and larger primary injectors. The engine produces 435 bhp, and 235 lb-ft of torque at only 9 psi of boost. This means that the engine retains its reliability while producing 181 more horsepower than the standard Renesis D962R motor. The weight of the car is 1440 lbs.; that is a 3.4 lb/hp ratio- a truly awesome number!

Due to the exhaust pressure of the rotary engine, combined with the very short intercooler tube lengths, there is very little turbo lag, and huge power is available from 4500 rpm right to the 8500 redline! The car retains its driveability, but the increased acceleration makes the D962R Turbo the most awesome track day car. It combines the safety of the D962R chassis with the raw acceleration of the turbo. The D962R Turbo has never been passed in a straight- ever! If you watch the mirrors in the video of the Turbo, you can see just how quickly the cars are passed- like they are tied to an anchor. At any price, the D962R is Incredible!

Horsepower – 435 HP

Richard L. Diasio on the design of the car,

When my father, Richard L. Diasio and I sat down and designed the concept of the original D962R, we wanted to make a fast, safe, durable track car that was unique in design, and fairly inexpensive to operate. Having loved the days of IMSA and the GTP prototype race cars from Porsche, Toyota, Nissan, Jaguar, and Mazda, we thought that a closed-cockpit, classicly designed car was the way to go, especially when everything else out there is either open-wheel, or open-cockpit. Next, we went to Dave Klym of Fabcar, who has designed many winning race cars, from tube framed Daytona-winning Porsches, to the Grand-Am Daytona Prototype race cars. Fabcar actually built the last 19 Porsche 962s for the factory, so the experience and reputation was welcome! Dave helped us make the concept a reality, and engineered the car around our specifications and requirements.

We wanted the car to be safe- first and foremost, but fast, well-handling, with large brakes, and with parts designed to last a long time. Every bit of the material in our car is going to safety, durability, speed, braking and handling. Is the D962R heavier than the competition’s cars? A little- but there is good reason for it. Weight is a function of material. Why is their car lighter? You probably don’t want to see the answer. Everything on the D962R is more substantial than the other cars; the chassis is more stout, the brakes are larger, the suspension parts are built to last longer. Where does one take weight out of the car? Out of the chassis, out of the parts, and out of your wallet. Cars that are built to the minimum weight possible, do so by sacrificing strength and durability of the parts, and increase the frequency of required

Thanks to Bob McMillan, John, Dennis, Ryan and Layne for bringing this cool creature to us. We love stuffs as pure as Diasio D962R. It’s a definitive driver’s machine!

    Looks like a miniature old school Group C racecar, but should be fun to drive nonetheless.

    Yup I agree, with 495 hp it should be like driving those LMP. I think it can be faster than a GT1 car. Maybe
