A drag race between 2 iconic cars we don't have.

Needless to say our dealership didn't exist back in 1908 and the BMW 1M Coupe which we do sell has now been sold out. In Jeremy Clarkson’s most recent DVD "Powered up 2011", He conducted a dual between a Classic 1908 BMW Powered Brutus and a modern classic the BMW 1M Coupe. The Brutus is appropriately named due to the 46 Litre BMW aeroplane engine rated at 373Kw @ 1,500rpm mounted under the bonnet.
If you like the video, Purchase the DVD here.

Sadly Video Removed due to Copyright Reasons. Still a great clip from a great DVD.
