Not a common sight

You don’t see or read about this too often (anymore):

The BMW V12 LMR was a Le Mans Prototype built for sports car racing from 1999 to 2000. The car was built through an alliance between BMW Motorsport and WilliamsF1, and was the successor to the failed BMW V12 LM of 1998. It is famous for being BMW’s only overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (source+more here).

  1. “Protect me from what I want”–interesting slogan from one of the more aspirational/”keeping up with the Joneses” car makers out there…

  2. Just got wind of this:

    Nice.

  3. This BMW V12 was so NON-competitive against the Audi R8 debut’d in endurance racing….that BMW was forced to pull the plug on the car…..even though it was the defending champion! I think that just shows how dominant the Audi R8 was when it debut’d on the race track. Amazing.
