1,280 HP BMW F1 rebuild and drive great Sound

The BT52 was the 1983 car. I apparently had forgotten what proper F1 cars used to sound like. Feast your ears.
Wow, it brought back some great memories.
That just might be the original F1 factory group, as they look to be a few retired seniors present.

Apologies, but I have no responsibility for the weird music towards the end.

That looks like Zandvoort and almost like the old rear section that doesn't exist anymore (now housing).

It wasnt the BT52s sound so much that fascinated me, but its power and its looks. ...What a beautiful racecar !

Up from the early 90's F1 cars started not to meet my sense of beauty anymore. Latest since the mid 90's really beautiful F1 cars have not been built anymore. And what they look like today, defies description, IMHO.

Racing motorcycles, on the contrary, have continued to become more and more beautiful up to this day. Bike races (modern and classic) still attract me, along with classic racecar events.

The gentleman you see at 6:52 - 7:02 is Paul Rosche (RIP), the engineering mastermind of BMWs F1 turbo engines.

The power of the BT52s 1.5 litre 4-cyl engine was very impressive. I watched Nelson Piquet from the pitlane accelerate it on the start-finish straight in Hockenheim in spring of 1983, when BMW used that racetrack to test the engine. The qualifying version had up to 1,400 HP.

Just came across this video with Jan Lammers driving Nelson Piquets beautiful Brabham BT52 from 1983 at the Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort in September 2017.
