One of the most iconic Schnitzer Motorsport cars in racing history is making his long awaited comeback. It’s the 1978’s DRM German championship winner: the BMW Group 5 E21, which was driven by Harald Ertl.

 

During a long and intense process, Qvick Motors carefully restored the legendary BMW Group 5 E21-R1-26 back into his very authentic state. Even the victorious Sachs livery is now again decorating the body.

 

Based on the original car, Qvick Motors is building a limited series of exact replicas. These absolute collectors’ items are a real must-have for race enthusiast who are into historic cars and legendary race winners.

 

Each replica will carry a livery that was once on the original BMW Group 5 E21-R1-26. After the DRM victory in 1978, the car participated in many other races. It successfully competed in Germany, China, Australia, Thailand and Malaysia, with drivers as Manfred Winkelhock, Hans Stuck, Walter Brun, Harald Grohs, Francis Cheung and Ian Grey.
