The car comes race-ready condition with Pi dashboard, data acquisition system and all equipment needed. there’s a spare set of wheels, and components. A comprehensive file documenting the car’s history, restoration and most recent race-preparation last year is included. Chris Routledge, Managing Director of COYS said, “This is a stunning and fine handling racing car. B191 05 represents a highly important piece of both Benetton and Michael Schumacher’s history. It is an opportunity not to be missed.”
COYS Nürburgring auction will have a 1938 BMW/AFM 328 Roadster ex Günther Bechem/German GP. After WWII, Alex von Falkenhausen (AFM), an engineer who worked for BMW on the 328’s before the war, opened a garage in Munich where he tuned pre-war 328s. Later in 1948 he went on to build his own car marque with the 328’s engine. This particular car was sold to Günther Bechem, who often raced it under the nickname “Bernhard Nacke”. In 1953, Bechem along with Hans Stuck entered two AFMs in the Nürburgring German Grand Prix, both qualified, and raced against the likes of Ascari’s Ferrari.
