How To Build A 500 HP V10 E30 M3 w/ Pics

As featured on Bimmerpost homepage.

Hey guys,

The guys at Piper Motorsports are dropping a E60 M5s S85 V10 into a E30 M3

They are also using some E90 pieces for it like suspension and subframe.

You can follow the build Here: Piper Motorsports

From vwvortex:
Quote:
About a year ago, there was a thread about a local shop building an E30 M3 with a V10 for a guy with an extensive BMW collection. The car is nearing completion and here is a lengthy pictorial of the fabrication work which has gone into the car. Needless to say, it's very impressive. Given that every suspension pickup has been changed and the car has new subframes, new track, etc, it may be fair to say it's an E30 M3 in body shape only. Outside of the shape, it's truly a custom car and not just a drivetrain swap:

wholly crap! That's awesome! If i knew had all the technical know how, it'd be a great garage project over something like 5 years! I can't wait to see faces of people in M5 and M6 when this car blows them away! haha.

Yep, that's one hell of a car. Pictures of it started floating around here 6 months ago and it looks like they're finally almost finished with it.

Wonder how it handles , but must be a rocket on a straight line. I'd have spent that money on a GT3 myself, but the guy probably has one already . Later.
