Description

Strong of 8 wins at the Spa 24h, BMW had for only goal a ninth victory in 1982 on the Ardennes track. Working with the best teams and drivers, the Bavarian brand will have a crushing victory, trusting the first 6 places after 24h hours. 



However, in this unconditional domination, spectators and media eyes were not on the winning team but on the BMW runner-up in the classification ! 

Although 3 laps behind the highest step of the podium, the Waterloo prepared BMW 528 GrA was wearing a « Gitanes » dress and the name of Jean Louis Trintignant !

Movie idol and respected amateur driver, he was paired to the very professional Thierry Tassin and Jean Pierre Jarrier. The « glamour touch » incarnation and answering interview with enthusiasm, Trintignant will make his mark and assume, with humility, his role in this impressive sporting performance. 



Perfectly restored by Gipimotor, this BMW 528 GrA « Gitanes » is one of the witness of a racing and marketing domination by the Bavarian brand and its team.

Delivered ready to race, this historical monument is eligible in all HTC championships. 



The car can be seen in Gipimotor’s HQ (Evere - Belgium) on appointment only.
