Would you buy a $199,000 S85 V10 M3 E92 by Brabham Racing?

WOW! I remember seen a guy in Dubai (I think) building a V10 M3.

Is that interior made out of clay?

Ugly interior and extremely overpriced. Seems like this car will become a nice indoor decoration.

I would buy it if I had that amount of cash. Maybe its just me but I have always been absolutely enthralled by the s85 engine and the thought of it in a m3 was always just a dream. A stroker 600 plus hp version in a 3400 pound car is ferrari enzo fast which would be extremely cool in an m3.

I hate the wide-body kit and the wheels but that is easy enough to fix.

Considering the GtS m3 was 150k or so, this is not really a bad buy

This a repost. Car is a bespoke build; for what they have done to it, the price sounds somewhat reasonable. All carbon fiber panels (inner and outer), re-inforced chassis, engine transplant, full custom interior with Rolls Royce leather.

For that kind of cheddahhh, I'd go elsewhere. Even if the M3 GTS is a lot slower, I'd rather have something special directly from the M division. But honestly, for that kind of money I'd be in a R8 V10 or something similar.

200 G's and they couldn't take the car to HRE or something for some non-shitty wheels?

That exhaust is badass. I guess I could deal with the bodywork but I'd prefer OEM. Those wheels are repulsive and the interior is overdone. That stroker S85 is killer though!

Interesting car for sure. Full interior, but according to edmunds the car is 330lbs lighter (with the V8).

From the interior, I'd like the leather covered dash and the super fat steering wheel.

If you want a v10 coupe with lots of hp, why not just get a viper or an r8 v10? 200k is a lot of $$ for a car that looks just like any other vanilla 3 series on the road. For that kind of money, why not get something that actually looks like it cost 200k, like one of these:

Agreed. This deal wouldn't be worth it if they had a "buy one, get one free" special.

I would want to see some certifications and a formal appraisal.

However, some may feel this is a beauty and a real steal.

Quote .... 610+ bhp from a tuned 10 cylinder M5 5.8l natural aspirated engine and a perfect road holding at a top speed of 345 km/h This car is a must for whom respect it .... End of quote

"a must for whom respect it"

Hope the guy that screwed with a perfect car is stuck with it for life ... I know one thing he/she/they will never ever recover the money they put into it ... then for one to do this they must have money to burn

BTW ... it's no longer an M3 ... a 3 3/4 perhaps no longer a M3 for sure!
