After extensive fine-tuning was the BMW 320i Turbo able to win IMSA races in 1978. One mustn’t forget: the small sedan competed against very bad Porsche 934/5, also against powerful Corvette and Camaro. BMW stopped the program as early as 1979, wanting to concentrate fully on Formula 1.

The 16-valve engine produced about 310 hp – that was easily enough, because the 320 for Group 5 weighed just 740 kilos with half the tank and driver.

Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, usually known under its abbreviation BMW, is a luxury vehicles, motorcycle, and engine manufacturing company founded in 1916.
