BMW Sauber F1 Event in Malaysia - The Cars

The BMW Sauber (did you notice the word Petronas is missing? Not my fault... BMW didn't use it when it named the event) F1 Event in Malaysia was held at a makeshift structure located on the open air car park outside of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It was an exclusive invites only event but I was lucky enough that an old friend of mine who managed to snag some invites "kena FFK" so he called me to go instead. We had only enough invites for 2 persons but we went anyway... after all there was free food and free flow of alcohol!

I took quite a few pictures so I'm going to split the event into a few blog posts. First up are the cars that they had parked at the event. BMW displayed many notable cars but I'm not a big BMW fan so I can't name the more exotic ones. The common ones are easier to name but then many people can name them anyway. If you could help name the cars that I couldn't then that would be great!

Super classic BMW race car. Looks like one of those cars you would see in classic James Bond movies.

Don't know what this is called but this car had a really sweet (and extremely loud) engine sound. If I'm not mistaken this car had a V12 engine.

Help me name this!

The previous model 3 series, the E46.

The BMW car that 80s babies would be familiar with, the E36.

Another E46.

One BMW car I've always admired, the 8 series. You can find a few of these on Malaysian roads. Very rare though. Correction: it's a BMW M1 Procar.

I molested a 6 series convertible!!! I know someone who's going to be sooooo jealous.
