Eggenberger BMW E28

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

This isn't just any old 528i. This particular one is actually the last remaining Group A BMW E28 in existence.
Built by revered race outfit Eggenberger in 1982, it was campaigned in period by Enzo Calderari, finishing 6th in the 1982 European Touring Car Championship, sister car to the title-winning Grano/Kelleners Eggenberger car. The 528i passed into private hands in 1983, racing in Italy throughout the 1980s.
It's recently been refreshed by Geoff Steel Racing, and impressively it still has its original BMW Motorsport shell and all the correct trim.That outrageously citrusy paint really brightens up a grey day too, doesn't it?

Spotted at 75MM - more pics here.
