1 series coupe E82 S54B32 Turbo extreme
(If this is posted in the wrong forum category - move it please)
I'm posting up a project thread for a friend of mine who is putting togheter a somewhat untraditional combo with a 1 series Coupe (E82) shell with E92 M3 suspension and S54B32 turbocharged setup to drive in the scandinavian "Gatebil Extreme" racing series witch starts in May this year. This is a "no limits" class for those who wants to go mental, alot of them are basicly trashing around the track, not everyone is as concerned with low trap speed. 50/50 show / racing.
This is a very rare and unique build at least up here, I don't know about in the states but haven't seen to much of them in BMW magazines yet.
The car was collected brand new from the factory line in the BMW factory as a clean stock shell in spring of 2012, then it was sendt over the border to Sweden to fit a WRC FIA heavy duty rollcage.
After he got it back he preped the chassi and fitted front and rear subframe from E92 M3 and fitted custom K-sport E92 M3 spec coilovers, K-sport 356mm and 330mm brakes front/rear, E30 carbon dash, dashlogger, bucket seats and 6 point harness.
The bodykit is a special made glasfiber kit from rallycross. It needed at lot of TLC and love to fit correctly. The doors, rear and front fenders including front and rear bumper is GF and roof, hood, trunk and inner fenders are carbonfiber.
He also made a fully removable front for quick servicing.
I made a little teaser film of it last time i was around the shop. I will make another full pedal to the metal version once it hits the track.
It will be dynoed next week, so it will propably be shot another clip then also
