Mechanically the same as 956/114 it was bought and run by Porsche Kremer. It’s big claim to fame was leading Le Mans convincingly in 1984 as the Kenwood car for many hours, eventually finishing sixth and in fifth place the following year but mainly by winning the 1984 ‘Money Race’ at the Norisring, though elsewhere and despite the talents of Vern Schuppan, Alan Jones, Manfred Winkelhock, Klaus Ludwig and many others, it’s best result was 4th at the Imola 1,000 kms didn’t trouble the podium again until 1985.

It was sold to Renoma Alpha Cubic to race in the Japanese domestic sports car championship and scored three third places podiums in two seasons before being bought back by the Kremer Brothers, restored and returned to Winkelhock’s victorious Liqui Moly Norisring livery. Like 114, it exists today with full sprint bodywork and a Motronic 2.65-litre engine.
