Group 5 Hero: BMW 320 Turbo
Of all the racing formulas that produced stunning race cars, Group 5 is one of our favourites.
And this BMW 320 Turbo is a fave among faves.
The formula, which was in its deregulated niceness, was almost the precursor of Group B rally in that there were super fat versions of the road cars. The regulation required only the bonnet, roof, doors and rail panel were left unmodified. What resulted were spectacular racing cars.
We particularly love this guy’s casual stance. And his beard. if anyone can identify the man, we’d like to send him our sincere congratulations on his pure stylish ease…
Look out for a mini series of group 5 wonders!
