Two very different, insanely powerful BMW E30s built for maximum enjoyment
I am a big fan of everything pertaining to the custom car scene. While the US may have dominated the scene at one time, I am of the opinion that it is no longer the case. There are some really exciting things taking place in the automotive space in such places as Japan, Northern Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
Of everything that I have seen, nowhere is it more insane than in the Scandanavian countries of Northern Europe. This includes such countries as Denmark, Finland, Sweden and others.
Not only are some of the automotive projects amazing out of these places, they also seem to manage to get absolutely insane amounts of horsepower out of their cars. We are talking about 1,000+ horsepower out of highly modified German and Japanese iron. Their feats are not limited to just performance but include design, construction and overall build quality. I hope to show more of the incredible work taking place in this part of the World in the future.
The best part about a lot of the work that they do is that they don’t just do it for show. As the video below shows, they use every ounce of their vehicles for maximum enjoyment, as well they should.
In the video below, we see the owners of some pretty amazing cars flogging them about on an enclosed track. The two highlighted videos are both of BMW E30s, heavily modified E30s.
Two Insane E30s with different hearts
The purple BMW E30 M3 has undergone an engine swap whereby the 2.3-liter four cylinder S14 has been replaced with a Toyota 2JZ-GTE six-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 1,100 horsepower. While there are those out there who would think that this is sacrilegious, it is fun to watch and I am sure, exhilarating to drive.
The second vehicle is a dark gray 1990 or so 325i that has also had its 2.5-liter M20 engine replaced with a turbocharged S54 engine putting out 1,250 horsepower. The vehicle has an M-Techic body kit and wears wheels from a BMW E39 M5. Overall, the car is a beast but yet very nice to look at.
The remaining video is filled with a variety of BMW vehicles including BMW E28 driven as if it was stolen and a few E39s.
Hats off to Oddis Productions for making this video. They do a great job of covering some of the exciting builds in progress in that part of the World.
