After the 1979 season of the German Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft with a normally aspirated Ford Escort II RS Hessian businessman Wolfgang Boller acquired one of Erich Zakowski's Ford Escort II RS Turbo Zakspeed Gr. 5 machines for 1980.

The little 1.4 litre turbocharged engine was close to 400 hp that year and good enough for top 5 results even as a private entry. The first round of the season at Zolder saw Boller's black Ford with the classic blue stripe Ford RS decoration but the expensive turbo adventure asked for major sponsorship.

For the season's highlight at the Nuremberg Norisring Boller's car was backed by Bodenheim based liquor brand Kümmerling in a spectacular colourful livery one of the most striking designs ever. A short cooperation as the car was repainted for the following race at Donington completely in white and red with another entire re-design in light green for Zolder.
