I'm sure i forgot to mention lots of things but short story ; this is an 1000 hp professionally built e46 m3 , developed to perfection over 5 years and more than £120k spent on it in all this time to bring it to the stage it is now.... The car has been used in the latest British drift championship season where it ran flawlessly for 4 rounds but you can expect some cosmetic battle scars mostly on the fiberglass bodywork - nothing £500 cannot repair. 

I’m including in the sale 1 rear spare arm complete with all the bushes , 4 sets of rear wheels mostly with new tyres, throtle motors , hoses , clamps , and many spares that i gathered over the years.

It's a RHD car but can easily be switched to LHD if any european buyers interested. 

To build a simmilar car already having the knowledge we have now it will cost between £65k to £80k depending on local labour rates and without including the base car.

My asking price is £40k due to the fact the car has been used but be rest assured we maintained it regardless of cost
