Default AMG 500SEC Group A Racecars

I found the engine first and then tracked down these very rare cars. Few would know they ever existed since there was only 2 cars and they only competed twice before being mothballed. Apparently at least one still exists and I’ve love to take a closer look at them! Very few photos exist on the web so if anyone’s going to Germany in the next few years....

Info on the large die cast model is interesting too. However, I doubt the race car would’ve been fitted with a full exhaust, so it may not be accurate, but I’d be happy to be proven wrong!

So it’s likely to be the most powerful naturally aspirated M117 ever made (338kW)!

In comparison:

VL Group A (Walkinshaw) road car 185kW,
1987 VL Race car: 320kW.

VN Group A road car: 215kW,
1991 VN race car 388kW.
