From now on this concept car, which has been built only twice, will be part of our permanent exhibition! First presented in 1972 for the Munich Olympics, it was equally regarded as a design study by BMW chief designer Paul Bracq and a rolling test laboratory for forward-looking technology. Based on the BMW Turbo, the BMW M1 was developed and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2018. The BMW Turbo, which is a loan of the BMW Group Classic, is expected to be on display here until the end of 2018.
Just arrived and now part of our permanent exhibition: The Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 (mock-up) from 2017, which achievedthe overall victory in the 24 Hours of le Mans in 2015, 2016 and 2017. We thank Schaeffler Germany for this great loan!
In a dramatic finale Björn Skottke from Team PROTOTYP-Shell secured the 2017 RCCO drivers’ title. The last RCCO race of the 2017 season was won by Michael Niemas (KTM) from Team Shell-PROTOTYP. For Team PROTOTYP-Shell this marked the third RCCO drivers’ title in succession after Jürgen Stüdemann had secured the title in both 2015 and 2016. At the same time, PROTOTYP-Shell and Shell-PROTOTYP caused KTM to instantly win the manufacturers’ title with the X-BOW Vision RCCO in its first RCCO season.
In the #VisionRCCO concept all performance-relevant parameters of the racing cars are identically specified. In spite of this, the electric racing cars clearly differ from each other visually. In 2018 exclusive electric racing car concepts from ABT, Audi, KTM, Lamborghini, Schaeffler and Volkswagen will again be on the RCCO grid. For 2019 six additional manufacturers will be permitted.
