cool will have a look
we did this 30 years ago, a 745 Turbo engine in a coupe.
Took it to the Zolder racing circuit just to test the beast.
Found out that the BMW works team were there for testing.
But Zolder is in Belgium and Belgians are nice and laid back people.
yes, we could take the car to the track as long as we would not bother the works team
One lap? Two laps? Oh c’mon we came from Holland so we can do at least 5 laps yes?
On the straight we’d be sitting behind the works non-turbo Coupe. Well, we were actually faster in a straight line !
It did not take long before the works team signalled us into the pit lane.
How the h***l could a normal licenced 6 series keep up with a works car down the straight
We opened the bonnet and guys from the works team were crawling all over our beast.
They complimented us on how we’d done the job.
Even offered us a set of front brakes if their works driver could go for a lap in it.
Of course we said yes.
Can you imagine, we’d bought the 6 series with a broken engine for next to nothing and the turbo engine from a wrecked 7 series for next to nothing.
As a matter of fact, we’d bought the turbo engine because it was one third of the price of a non turbo engine
no idea whats that is about, liked the fb page
Needs updating though, there is nothing on it lol
Just seen this, and will be adding myself today
When are peeps going to put their car pics and user names up on f/book? Would be good to know who is who x
