This British Racing Motors (BRM) P180 show car was in use for the 1972 season - the 23rd FIA Formula One World Championship™ season. Notable for the BRM team in this year was their new partnership with Marlboro which saw the launch of the new white and red livery. Cigarette sponsorship was big business in F1 at this time with John Player Special sponsoring the Lotus team.
BRM took the largest team into the 1972 F1 season with a fleet of eight drivers; Howden Ganley, Reine Wisell, Peter Gethin, Alex Soler-Roig, Helmut Marko, Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Jackie Oliver, and Bill Brack.
Beltoise took his one and only F1 win this season too, which also marked the last win for the BRM team and was achieved at a rainy Monaco Grand Prix.
This show car was made back in early 1970s and has been used for promotional activities representing the era. For quite a few years the car had been in private ownership in the UK and the current owner had the car from the early 1990s. He restored the car in late 1990s and has since displayed it in a museum. There is no engine in the car and the gearbox is made out of fibreglass, meaning it is purely for display. However, it is an excellent car to have in any collection.
Viewing of the BRM is highly recommended. Please contact us for further clarification by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
