Why Nelson Piquet Jr. had an unforgettable birthday this year.

Do you remember how you spent your last birthday? Do you have to think back to recall it?

Nelson Piquet Jr. would be able to reply instantly.

On the closed Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road (Austria), he got to drive a selection of automobile gems which would bring tears of joy to the eyes to any car enthusiast:

- BMW 635CSi
- BMW 635CSi Genuine BMW Parts
- BMW M1
- BMW M1 Procar
- McLaren BMW F1
- Brabham BMW BT52.

Unwrapping the gifts.

What do these cars all have in common? Two things: it was in these automobiles that Nelson Piquet Jr.’s father celebrated outstanding achievements, and all of them were milestones in the development of what is today BMW M GmbH and BMW Motorsport.

Nelson Piquet Jr..

There are rumours that film footage exists (we’re already excited at the thought of the sound alone) – but until that appears, you can enjoy photographs of these wonderful cars, whose genes are to be found in every M automobile today.

Always a sheer joy to look at: the BMW M635 CSi.

BMW 635CSi "Genuine BMW Parts" from the year 1984. The BMW 635CSi was entered in Group A as a near-series racing car the previous year.

Still a dream automobile - here in black: the BMW M1.

BMW M1 Procar. Together with the road version, the racing version of the BMW M1 mainly rose to fame in the Procar Series. The best drivers battled it out against each other in BMW M1 Procars prior to Formula 1 races. Nelson Piquet won the competition in this car in 1980. In this case, his son has moved on to higher things.

Are there cows with automobile expertise?

McLaren BMW F1 GTR Le Mans. This car is accustomed to the night. Driven by Nelson Piquet among others, it was entered in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997. But the weather in Le Mans was warm and dry - in sharp contrast to the outlook on the Timmelsjoch when the racing car with the 6-litre V12 engine makes its appearance.

Up to 790 hp from 1499 cubic centimetres: the Brabham BMW BT52 Turbo. Nelson Piquet went straight through to win the Formula 1 World Championship in it in 1983. It wasn’t designed for mountain racing..

No words.

How will you be spending your next birthday?
