    • 1600+ hp quad rotor dedicated drag BMW (we use the term BMW loosely) by Queen St.

      Not really sure if it is fair to call this a BMW, more like something resembling a BMW. This once was a E46 M3 but now it is a Mazda 4 rotor powered turbo drag car with tube chassis. The gold plating actually looks nice but you build something like this for kicking ass down the drag strip not to look pretty. The "previous" version of this car has run 7.2@196 supposedly. Still, we do not really see how you can call this a BMW. Still, the workmanship is incredible and to be respected. We look forward to seeing what it can do down the strip where it belongs, instead of touring car shows as it is currently scheduled to do.

        I wonder how hard it is to come up with a 4 rotor....can't be many of those lying around.

        I love the idea of rotary power... I had an RX-8 (20b engine) -but have always wanted to try out an RX-7. I still think today the RX-7 is one of the most beautiful and capable cars of it's time (and can still keep up with similar priced cars today).

        How did you like the RX8?

        Wish we had more rotary motors.

        They are saying it is real gold. I don't know if it will melt, Gold is a good insulator right? It used on the McLaren F1 engine bay and that doesn't melt. However, on the turbo the temps will be much higher. I don't know, this leads me to believe this is just a show car that won't be seeing the strip... ever.
        There is a video of the turbo and manifold glowing red.....gold plated...given the turbine side is black but still. I can't seem to find it now though.
