BMW Turbo Car 1972

The E25 Turbo concept car was built by BMW as a celebration for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich. It was designed by Paul Bracq, with gullwing doors and was based on a modified 2002 chassis with a mid-mounted engine. The Turbo featured foam filled front and rear sections to absorb impact, side impact beams, a braking distance monitor utilizing radar, and a futuristic cockpit. The car was powered by a V10 with three superchargers which in total developed 708 kW (963 PS; 949 hp) at 1700 rpm and reached 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 10.5 seconds. The top speed was 430 km/h (267 mph).
Only two were ever built. BMW later used the Turbo’s design themes on the M1, the 8-Series, the Z1 and the 2008 M1 Homage Concept.
