The BMW M3 generation E46 is already a legend. Especially the dreamlike S54B32 inline six-cylinder engine with two overhead camshafts, double VANOS and 343 PS is the best engine of all time for many M enthusiasts. Especially of course the once again improved S5432HP from the M3 CSL with 360 PS. Who on the M3 E46 one Tuning want to make is often already done with a subtle lowering and other aluminum rims. But this vehicle is completely different. Apart from the subtly modified body with lowering, CSL parts and BBS alloy wheels (ET24 10 × 18 inches) with Pirelli slippers, there is hardly anything left of the typical BMW technology. The in-line six-cylinder flew out and was replaced by a seven-liter V8 (LS7) of a Corvette C6 Z06 with 650 PS & 740 NM torque. The engine is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission from a Cadillac CTS-V and the load is braked with parts of a braking system from the Porsche Boxster S. And that this setup also works shows an impressive lap time of 1.57.76 on the Hockenheimring last year October.
