Welcome to Classic Heroes
Specialists in the sale, restoration, trackday or race preparation of those automotive performance icons of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s that ushered in a new direction for motoring.
This short video takes you on a tour of our Workshop and Barney takes the opportunity to explain a little about what we do at Classic Heroes.
Everybody who knows me well, will know that my love affair with German cars, especially BMW started many, many years ago with the E9 3.0 coupe, BMW’s range of luxurious GT Coupes built in the first half of the 1970s.
The powerful yet unassuming E28 M5 has been a favourite and constant companion to Randy Balingit-Hartmann since he bought it brand new in 1989. They have now completed over 400,000 miles together with total enjoyment and no major problems.
I hate to admit it, but sometimes I catch myself becoming a little complacent and have to remind myself just how very lucky I am to be surrounded by the most amazing motoring icons.
Readers may recall my past blogs when I competed in Targa Tasmania in my E30 M3 tarmac rally car?
We have just finished fitting the roll cage and rear brace to our E46 M3 track car. We use a code name for the E46 M3 track cars that we have built for customers. This car is CH-T46
Finding a decent 2002 Turbo today anywhere in Europe is now hard work with the handful of decent cars being locked away in long term collections and the rest often being misrepresented examples not quite to the quality that is being claimed.
Without doubt, this was the birth of BMW Motorsport, where dreams were made and legends created. The E9 CSL is truly iconic in the history of BMW.
Unique. Fascinating. Brutal. Unprecedented. Head-Turner. Beautiful. Just some of the words that over time have been used to describe BMW’s extravagant, 400 BHP, all aluminium Z8 roadster.
