The BRM P180 was designed by Tony Southgate and raced in the 1972 Formula One season. The car was powered by a BRM 3.0-litre V12 engine. One of the main features of the P180 was that the radiators had moved to the rear of the car, allowing the nose of the car to be very wide and flat. In the 1972 season BRM team used four different models (P153, P160B, P160C, and P180), and the P180 car raced in five rounds driven by Peter Gethin, Howden Ganley, Jean-Pierre Beltiose, Bill Brack and Brian Redman. New Zealnder Howden Ganley continued with the BRM team for the second season. In 1972 he usually drove P160, and used P180 only once at Monaco Grand Prix when he retired due to accident on lap 47.
