The BRM P126 was a Formula One racing car which raced in the 1968 and 1969 Formula One seasons. It was powered by a 3.0 litre V12 engine. Its best result was a second place by Richard Attwood at the 1968 Monaco Grand Prix.[2] Design was contracted out to former Lotus and Eagle designer Len Terry and the three examples built were constructed by his Transatlantic Automotive Consultants company due to pressure of work at BRM. Works built cars to the same design were designated P133.
