ESS 1000 HP Project M3

I wanted to share a couple sneak peek shots of our new project. This car will be powered by a custom built motor running E85 and the most aggressive supercharger setup we have designed to date with a target of around 1,000 HP. We are working with some of our partners and trusted vendors to bring this concept to reality. I will update the thread with details as we go along. Our goal will be to have this car ready for our Bimmerfest booth in May






The first stage of this project was to make sure we could put the power we are planning on to the ground. This required traction that stock wheel sizes would not handle. Knowing this we turned to LTMW and arranged for a Liberty Walk Wide Body kit with custom paint. The color we decided on is Mercedes AMG Black Series matte silver to match our C63 AMG Black Series project car that is coming soon. Next was to decided on a wheel which we left up to our friends at Alekshop who arranged for a custom BBS 18" E05. This wheel gives us flexibility to run different tire configurations depending on what we need and it does not hurt that they look great.

Needless to say we are very happy with how both of these parts of the project turned out.













Next up we wanted to add some safety to the car so we optioned to have Alekshop install their new roll cage. We are also installing the CAE shifter to help improve shifting.





For this motor unlike previous VT3 project builds we sleeved the block. As we have done in other builds we lowered the CR with custom pistons and upgraded the rods and rod bearings.





Brakes are in along with suspension. We choose to go with AP racing new BBK for this car and Ohlins coilovers.








More updates coming soon..

Nice! Questions:
1) 1,000WHP or 1,000 crank hp?
2) Based on what you learn from build, will you guys start offering E85 tunes w/your regular s/c kits?

Most likely crank.

Wonder if its manual or dct, my guess would be manual.

I'd cosign on it being a 6MT. For some reason, I remember ESS mentioning a 6MT build in the future not too long ago. Given that Drew's DCT got kinda sketchy as the HP climbed, it would make sense to go with a 6MT.
