    I think the Picture is from Oldtimer Grand Prix last year, where you could see the car in the DRM Revival :). So the driver is not Klaus Ludwig, but Peter Zakowski (the owner of Zakspeed). There's even an onboard video from the event, which is pretty insane:



    It's the only operational Ford Turbo Capri in the world!

    It's such a shame to realize that series like the DRM will never return again in the modern motorsport era.

    Always wonder what drivers, who controlled such beasts as the Zakspeed Capri, think about drivers in modern series with their sequential shifters, floppy pedals, traction control, ABS and more

    Not the only one if it is still true that former Hillclimb-champion Herbert Stenger owns one too, in Sachs-design. The car is used for memorial- and oldtimer-events. His website says so and I guess the info is up to date: http://www.equipe-stenger.de/index.php?modul=static&id=57



    Great car anyway :thumbsup:

    You are right, I misread this. It's just the only Zakspeed Capri.

    owned a tamyia scale model kit (i think 1:24) of the black version from the year before as a kid. loved those cars, my favorite one being the blue celica, piloted i think by harald ertl. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-g4GynnfH0vw/TgntJzly4uI/AAAAAAAACww/NSMXUSQ8ULY/s1600/celica1.jpg
    also some of the bmw 320 colour schemes were glorious. schnitzer, I think, still ran an "old" bmw 2002 in group 5 makeup, even after the 320s debuted. it looked brilliant, too.
