1977 BMW 320 Turbo
Following the CSL, the BMW 320 was raced in both Europe and the U.S. with both normally-aspirated and turbocharged engines based on the successful BMW Formula 2 engine. This 320 Turbo chassis #002 was developed by McLaren Engines for BMW NA and raced in the IMSA Series powered by a turbocharged inline 4-cylinder that produced 625 horsepower at 9500 rpm. Built with steel unit-construction, the 320 Turbo features an alloy roll cage and fiberglass body while the MacPherson strut/trailing arm suspension includes magnesium uprights and aluminum hubs.
