There’s something special about classic touring cars. Be it their brute power, wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing appearance or the closely-fought races in which they competed – we just can’t get enough. And this clip, captured during the Heritage Touring Cup at the recent Hungaroring Classic, is an absolute gem.
Video: A Hungaroring duel – BMW 635 CSi v. Zakspeed Ford Escort RS
Piloted by one of German pair Franz Wunderlich and Peter Praller, the 1984 Wurth-Hartge BMW 635 CSi is locked in a duel with the 1981 Ford Escort RS Zakspeed of Martin Kuendig, flying around the Mogyoród track.
So which car wins? The 3.4-litre straight-six BMW or the 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ford?
