Racing doesn’t require much power when the design is right. The best example of this is the BMW 700 RS. With only 70hp and weighing in at just 1,410 pounds, this lightweight racer still managed to achieve an impressive 100mph. In 1960, the BMW racing car won the German mountain championship with driver Hans Stuck at the wheel. Stuck was just getting started back then. The car itself went on to win quite a number of races until 1964.
