1400bhp F1 BMW
Forget the inept commentator ! (the manufactures never discussed openly the
'real power' till the end of 1986 after the restrictions were placed on Boost pressure)
These 1985 BMW Braham's had well over 1400+bhp, amazing footage of RAW
Maybe not the fastest in lap times...... but, amazing straight line speed!
and very similar to the 1986 video I posted on the BMW powered Benetton.
This video is in particular is good cause you can see the immense stress
the turbo is under as at the end of the
session it has almost cried enough with a fair bit of blue smoke bellowing
from the back of Piquets car............ then again 5.4+bar of absolute
'qualifying' Boost pressure on a
'truck turbo' from the 1980's will have
Enjoy this amazing video. Turn up the sound and relive the memories, of the
never to be repeated excess, the unrivaled show!, that was turbo F1 1980's style!!!!
Get On It! :-Oc==3
Benetton B186 BMW F1 Turbo 1350HP
Gerhard Berger on a quick lap with his Benetton B186 at Adelaide Street
Cicuit in 1986.
Since it was the last race before taking effect of the Boost pressure limitation it is probably the
most powerful F1 car ever.
The engine is a 1.5l inline 4 single turbo with up to 5.5bar (80psi) of Boost pressure and reving to 11500rpm with an
estimated power of 1350HP.
There is no accurate information about the power because the BMW Dyno was not able to messure the
engine on full Boost.
