Michael Schumacher’s 1990 Le Mans Racer Sounds Awesome
Before Michael Schumacher raced in Formula One he was a kind of racing protege for the Mercedes Motorsport division. And so Mercedes would say “Michael ze car you vill bee rrracing this veek eis eh Grrroup C Endurance rrracer, oh and you’ll be rrracing it in ze Le Mans 24 Hours”.  Michael would click his heels and do as instructed, Germans are a very disciplined and compliant nation. The C11 was designed by Peter Sauber and it was powered by a 950bhp 5.0 litre twin turbo V8 Mercedes engine. Schumacher competed in only three of the nine races during the 1990 World Sportscar Championship season, wining the season finale at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit and managing to finish fifth overall. The C11 would go on to win 8 out of the 9 races that year, the Sauber Mercedes team would take home the constructors and drivers championships. But its the sound that gets your attention, because of 21st century emissions rules they certainly don’t make them like this any more, make sure you have a decent set of speakers.  Sauber-Mercedes-C11-Michael-Schumacher
