It rides on the WTCC front and rear suspension with stabilizer, KW 3-way adjustable coilovers, and stops with ceramic brakes.
Power, of course, comes from the S65B40, built to 540 HP / 9,500RPM and sent through a Drenth Motorsport DG500 6-speed sequential gearbox.

Enjoy.

Amazing car! Amazing driving skills! I wonder how much it would convert our "regular" S65 to a 4.0L 540hp beast?

This is all time one of the best threads on the forum.

There are plenty of current race cars which currently use E92 M3 chassis but do not use the S65.

Kristaps Bluss' E92 Eurofighter Formula Drift build and Jake "DriftSquid" Jones' RB powered E92 M3 come to mind.
