    If I would own that car I would give her real number plates (or at least some replicas)... those are looking terrible...

    The second car (if there really are only 2) is owned by BMW up to today and was driven at the "Arosa Classic" Hill Climb in Schwitzerland last month (pictures in german magazine "Motor Klassik 11/2005").

    guess you might not know that there were decal plates in the 60's with the plaquette being applied by holes in the body. If you look closely at the picture from 1961 that car has decals. this detail was proven by research and verification from Han Stuck Jr who used to wash the car while at races and drive it back down the hill for his father...he was 10 years old at the time. Also I can guarantee that only two were ever built. verified by BMW Mobile Tradition historian and archivist. post the pics from Klassiker or the magazine you have and if it is silver with a half windshield and roll bar it is BMW's number two car. I have pictures of it in the museum also if you need verification.

    I have to bring my scanner back to life, but yes, it is a silver car.

    Don't understand me wrong, I won't say your informations are wrong, I only learned, that 19 BMW 700 RS were made and now have to learn, that there are only 2, what makes seeing one even better

    BMW usually puts the number six on their car at events...it is in a white square background...very similar to a picture taken in 1963 with Alex Von Falkenhausen driving.

    Ja,Ja...das ist Herr Rousch in der BMW Mobile Tradition RS...I have many pictures of me and this car at mobile traditions museum. will try to dig them out. i also have pictures of this car before restoration. it was severely damaged by Herr Willi Martini in the 1970's when he added a fiberglass hoop and a 1970's armaturee and instruments. he tried to reintroduce this car as one he had remade in the 70's but actually only modified the number two car. before BMW purchased it it was in the Hockemhein museum for race cars.

    No problem I would like to see some pictures of the interior and the engine of your car (maybe also the sign with the VIN). Never saw interior pics (seats, shifter and that stuff)

    Translation (might not be right in every part, 'cause english is my foreign language ):

    Small, light, agile, fast
    Against the hidden chamber (or what is "Aservatenkammer" in english??) of the BMW Mobile Tradition also Ali Babas treasure-cave is comparatively poor, and for the first hillclimb-race in Arosa the Munichs brought something rather special out into daylight: the BMW 700 RS, within between 1961 and 1964 drivers like Hans Stuck Sr., Herbert Linge and Alexander von Falkenhausen raced at Rossfeld, Gaisberg and Schauinsland.
    The blower-cooled two cylinder flat engine in the back based on the motorblock of the BMW 700, but it is build with a vertical shaft (in german "Königswelle"), which moves the camshafts per chains. It is breathing by two 36-Dell'Orto-carburators and has nearly 70 HP at 8000 rpm - all in a light spaceframe with aluminium-bodywork, independent wheel suspensions and a weight of only 630 kg.
    So this little Spider is very agile with much Torque at low rpms at the way uphill. The precision of the steering is remarkable, the driving at all is very neutral, only the brakes could be better.
    In finish in Arosa there is only one last question: why isn't the track at least double as long as it is?
