E23 745i

I'm suprised that there has been no mention of the SA only E23 BMW 745i with the 24v DOHC. More suprising however is that one of them was raced. I bet the driver finished his race relaxed and refreshed! Quoted from Wiki: A different 745i was built for the South Africa market, because the turbocharge...
