    • Brabham Racing sticks a stroked V10 under the hood of their BT92 Widebody M3

      Some of you may remember that Brabham came out with their stroked S65 V8 M3 with a widebody. They have now taken it to the next level by swapping in a stoked 5.8 liter S85 V10. The car still has the same widebody kit but now features different wheels. Power is at about 650 horsepower. Price? Well, the V8 car goes for around $300,000 so this one is not going to be cheaper. Worth it? No way, but cool to see.

        i saw the thread with the owner of this car i will get it hold on......guys you cant use normal logic to justify the price of a project like this, you cant say for the money you could have x, this is a guy that did this cuz he can, he is probably into this car for 300k+ but the money is meaningless for a guy like this!! If i hit the lottery tomorrow i would def buy all the different exotics out there but i love my m6 so i would do something special, 1st i would get it to 3500lb or less, then i would buy a stroker for it, do coil overs, a bb kit and break records with it!!! There is something that makes me tingle about that na motor so i dont know if i would go with the gpower kit on it

        If I won the lottery I would buy a bunch of exotics too but this isn't an exotic. Also, just because you are rich doesn't mean you have to spend money idiotically. A $300k M3 makes about as much sense as a diamond bezel casio digital watch

        True, but I still couldn't bring myself to just throw it away. He should give me some, would be me more constructive.

        How about people donate their BMW parts to bimmerboost, then have a for sale section to contribut to the cause. As an example, I have a nice condition E34 steering wheel to donate, a E34 Momo steering wheel hub adapter. You get the idea.
