BMW X5 Le Mans Experimental - V12 w/ 700 BHP
BMW X5 Le Mans Experimental - Only ONE Produced. Created in 2000. This beast would make Dr. Frankenstein smile. Its V-12 engine with 700 Brake horsepower, was more powerful than the 24 Hour Le Mans winners of 1995 and 1999, which used the same type of engine, but had restrictors. Hans-Joakim Stuck was the only driver crazy enough to push the car to it's full potential. Hans' story is a great one. He was born (Jan. 1, 1951) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and is the son of Christa Thielmann and the legendary Hans Stuck. As a young boy, his father taught him driving on the Nürburgring. In 1969 he started his first ever motor race at the Nordschleife. In 1970 he won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in a BMW 2002 Ti Speaking about that day he said, "Getting to the grid was extremely exciting. All of a sudden, my wishes to become a racer came true. I just wanted to start the race and give everybody hell!" The following year, at just 19 years of age, he won his first 24 hours race at the wheel of a BMW 2002TI. Hans won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring again in 1998 (BMW 320d) and 2004 (BMW M3 GTR). Hans raced Formula 2 for seven years and all but one year he used BMW engines for a total of 5 wins and 8 podiums. Hans raced six years in Formula 1 with two podium finishes for Martini Racing - in Germany (1st Niki Lauda, 2nd Jody Schecter, 3rd Hans) and Austria (1st Alan Jones, 2nd Niki Lauda, 3rd Hans) He raced F1 races in the U.S.: Watkins Glen (5x), Long Beach (4x).
