History
Possibly driven by Tony Longhurst in the 1993 FIA Touring Car Challenge, having been used in the 1993 Campionato Italiano Superturismo prior to that.

Bought by BMW Motorsport Australia and raced by Longhurst in the 1994 Australian Class II Championship, and later in the 1994 Bathurst 1000 by John Blanchard and Warwick Rooklyn.

Sold to Steven Ellery in 1995, updated to 1995-spec and driven in the 1995 Australian Super Touring Championship. Sold late in the year to Cameron McLean and used in the Clipsal Super Touring Car Trophy.

For 1996 the car the car was fitted with a sequential gearbox and raced by McLean in the Australian Super Touring Championship.

The car was for sale and unused for most of 1997 until purchased by Jim Cornish and Nigel Barclay, who together with Blair Smith raced it in the Bathurst 1000. Smith would also drive the car in the final rounds of the Australian Super Touring Championship.

Sold to Anthony Robson in 1998 and raced by Robson and Craig Bradshaw in the Australian Super Touring Championship. Robson would share the car with Ric Shaw in that year's Bathurst 1000.

Robson would race the car for the opening two meetings of the 1999 Australian Super Touring Championship until switching to a Honda Accord, with Allan Letcher taking over the car for selected rounds later in the year.

2000 would again see the car used by Robson in selected rounds of the Australian Super Touring Championship.

In 2003 the car was bought by Lindsay O'Donnell. Restored back to 1993 Italian livery and fitted with a more durable 2.5-lite M3 engine, the car has been campaigned by O'Donnell and son Mathew at various New Zealand endurance and classic events.

In 2015 the car was restored again, refitted with a 2.0-llitre engine and decked out in 1994 Benson & Hedges livery.
