The car was phased out in 2000 in favor of the BMW/Williams Formula 1 program which never really turned out to be a success story, and now BMW is all but out of F1..... hmmm.

The BMW V12 LMR weighed 900 Kilos, featured a naturally aspirated BMW Motorsport V-12 that produced 580-hp and was capable of a top speed of 350 kmph.

Remember those, awesome!

Watching the warming up now on Eurosport HD, warming up will be followed by the Le Mans Legend
