BMW 700 Sport – 1961

Attention fans of cars with racing history!

This unique BMW 700 sport was delivered in Italy to Mr Paolini in 1961 and was adapted for racing in 1964. From 1964 to 1967 the car was classified for the Italian Turismo 700 championship and was driven by drivers Mario Moscatelli and Lanfranco Caneschi. Participated in many races with resounding names such as the Coppa Galenga Roma, Trofeo San Remo, Coppa AC Bologna Imola, Vallelunga Roma etc. etc.

This beautiful racing history has been carefully documented. Many photos from that time are present and this car is also mentioned in the Italian magazines; Auto Sprint and Auto Italiana. The Sport version had more than half more power compared to the standard version and was terribly fast for that time. This thanks to a weight reduction of 50 kilos and two Solex downflow carburetors. It was the first car that was able to beat the fast Abarths. The 700 Sport has been completely restored and technically overhauled in the past. The restoration was carried out with an eye for detail and certainly originality. The body is in a very nice condition. The fittings of the sheet metal are good and the underside is free of rust.

Unique BMW 700 Sport with a very special history. Extremely suitable for many historic rallies!
