AvD Oldtimer GP 2019 Weekend - Legends at the Ring

TrackandTuner.com is always looking forward to the AvD Oldtimer GP. A full week and weekend of the best classic cars, supercars and even hypercars.


Many classic car owners, bring over their stunning cars, and in the meantime supercars and hypercars also come over to check out Touristfahren, the races and the ambiance. 


You have already seen our first report filled with gorgeous cars in the TF parking. 


Just a small selection of the great cars we saw during the weekend, you can see down below. 

  • Porsche GT2 RS
  • Porsche 918 Spyder
  • The new AMG GT-R 4 doors
  • BMW M3 F80 & M5 e34 Nurburgring edition

We also had a fast photoshoot with one of our favorite BMW M3 F80's. More on that car here.

As you can see we are talking about legendary classic cars like the gorgeous BMW M3 e30 fitted with a S54 M3 E46 engine. Check out the full photoshoot here.


You might not know it but the white and the green BMW M3 e30's also where fitted with a BMW M3 e46 engine!


Another great BMW classic, was the stanced BMW 2002 turbo. While I rather see it fully stock, I appreciated this example a lot. It looked great and the owners was having a lot of fun during the week, with the kids in the back, great stuff. 


Yes, as you can see it is heaven for BMW lovers. We also saw an immaculate BMW Sharknose also known as the BMW 3.0 CSL.

A quick walk across our friends at EVN Ring Rental, to see there newly wrapped Porsche GT3. A great car to take on the Nordschleife, a thing you absolutely need to do!

Walking towards to Nordschleife parking, we saw the Tesla coming in with the license plate "CRIPPLE". We wondered why? Well the owner was actually in a wheelchair. I have to say, great respect for the license plate and the owner.


However the highlight of the event was the true legend, a Porsche 917. 


The Porsche 917 is a sports prototype winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Powered by the Type 912 flat-12 engine of 4.5, 4.9, or 5 litres, the 917/30 Can-Am variant was capable of a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, and a test track top speed of up to 240 mph (390 km/h).

In 1971 the car featured in the Steve McQueen film Le Mans. In 2017 the car driven by McQueen in the film was sold at auction for $14m, a record price for a Porsche at that time. 

We think it was a replica, but one of extreme quality!


Let me know what your favorite car is in the gallery?
