This car is a millstone!

  1. This car was a millstone in the improvement of the sweet inline 6's we get today from BMW. if it wasnt for racing (in any form...rally, Le Mans, F1 Etc) we wouldnt have any of the technologys we have today in production cars. BMW spends millions on racing so it can improve its production line cars.

    for example, the Audi Le Mans car, the R8, has now intergrated a new type of fule injection in Audi. i cant remember what it is called. But ir improves perfoemance by i think 15% and fule ecomony by 15%. This shows how racing improves production cars!

    The R8 had direct-injection which allowed for better low-down torque and fuel economy.
