The Zig 500 came from Luxembourg and first appeared in 1951. Essentially a Cooper Mk II copy with a flat twin BMW engine. Our thanks to Tony Taylor for supplying these pictures.

In action during the 1951 Luxembourg GP with Paul Ries at the wheel.

A number are believed to have been built but success would have been difficult by 1951 against the Cooper Mk V and Kieft CK 51, especially as the BMW engine did not have the power of the Manx Norton.
