Video: BMW Brabham BT52 Turbo F1 Car Resurrected

The Brabham BT52 was a Formula One car designed for the Brabham team by longtime Brabham designer Gordon Murray for the 1983 season. The car ran on Michelin tyres and was powered by the massively powerful BMW M12/13 turbocharged engine which in 1983 produced about 850 bhp (630 kW) in qualifying trim, detuned to around 640 bhp (480 kW) for the races proper. Its drivers were 1981 World Champion Nelson Piquet and Riccardo Patrese.

The first turbo-fueled championship winning car in Formula One and highlight at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring (August 9th-11th, 2013) -- the Brabham BMW BT52.

The BMW BT 52 footage contains

- engine assembly
- testing and driving by Nelson Piquet
- car presentation at Goodwood

Saw this the other day. Fantastic footage! The M12 was undoubtedly one of the greatest F1 engines ever made and is still the only BMW engine to have won an F1 World Championship to date (i.e., Piquet's 2nd WDC in 1983). In fact, it was the first turbocharged engine to win an F1 World Championship.

I was a bit disappointed though that good ol' Piquet didn't at least try to thrash the BT52 around a bit at Goodwood...
