1981 BMW 535i Race Car

These photos came from a marvelous website run by Dipl. Ing. Albrecht Walloth und Alexander Nesch GbR . Walloth and Nesch supply parts for classic BMWs and race some classy BMWs including this M535i . The photos that follow show what a wonderful car it is. But, is it really an M535i? Check the pictures of the rear of the car. Note the placement of the fuel filler door. Only the '75-'76 E12 had the fuel filler door in the rear panel. So, perhaps this car started life as one of the ultra-rare 530MLE race cars. Whatever it is, it's very cool!
