    BMW 1 : GTC

    This BMW 1 Series goes beyond the imagination of most. Peter van der Kolk took on this project for the Golden Trade Club and created a monster…

    The sound comes from a tuned M3 engine. It was fitted with a custom air-box. The throttle row was also modified, making it no more fly-by-wire, but fully mechanical. That created a true 100% waterproof throttle system. The dry sump system and the carter was also adjusted for track use. Now the BMW produces a 580Nm of torque and a whopping 460hp!

    The original gearbox was replaced with a reinforced sequential gearbox, including paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

    The choice to build this power source into a BMW 1 series is because of its original wheelbase. It’s short, but the wheels are wide enough from each other, resulting in a kart like feel. Peter wanted to build something new, but which would perform well enough to beat a Marcos.

    The project started with the build of the rollcage. Only the bottom remained pretty much original. The rest of the car was replaced with custom Kevlar parts, resulting in a weight of 1160 kilo, distributing it 50/50 and 10% off center.

    But the aerodynamics is the part Peter is proudest of. In corporation with the air- and aviation-group of the TH Delft, he tested this new project in several wind-tunnel simulations. It resulted in a massive downforce, without having to modify the car and bodywork too much.

    Ya, if you are a brand new member you can't post links right away, done to cut down on spam. However, you can upload attachments so I would suggest going about it that way.

    WTF. That's no rearwing, that's a handlebar. In Pic 3 it looks like a shoppingkart... Totally DTMmed the bodywork...
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works
