BMW M535 Group 2 Martini

sign up


This BMW M535 was built to Group 2 regulations in 1981 by Willie Martini at his BMW workshop at Nurburg, with all the components from his previous Group 2 CSL fitted to this E12 body. It was raced extensively in endurance and VLN races, with notable results including 10th outright in the 1982 ADAC 1000km race, and driven by F1 aspirants Christian Danner and Giovanna Amati in the 24 hr race in 1985. 

After 1986 it was stored at Adenau. Walloth & Nesch recommissioned it in 2002, and a new owner raced it every year until bought by the current owner in 2015.

Since then it has raced successfully in series such as Peter Auto HTC, MRL, YTCC, and Tourenwagen Golden Era. It has been developed to make it consistently fast, low maintenance, and ultra reliable, whilst remaining fully compliant with Group 2 regulations. The bodywork is highly original with lovely patina. 

The 3453cc dry sump engine was built by Laranca Engineering with a new block and new CNC ported head producing approx 350 bhp.  Gearbox is a BMW Motorsport close ratio Getrag, Bilstein Suspension is professionally setup, wheels are 16” Alpina (3 sets)

The comprehensive spares package includes moulds for spoiler and arches, LSD, spot lights, brake pads, etc

This car is totally unique, being the only Group 2 E12 M535 built in period. The HTP is current, and the completely documented event history along with photos, videos, press articles and the original Wagenpass will also be provided. 

Currently located in Amsterdam. EU and UK duties are paid. Enquiries are welcome to the owner, or Ton Vink at Vink Motorsport.
