E46 Saloon m3 race car with V5

Selling on behalf of a friend who has unfortunately had a motorcycle accident and is also looking for a new project.

This has been built by a very reputable performance BMW specialist and has a unbelievably long spec sheet.

Originally a 320D endurance race car, has since undergone a M3 conversion using nothing but best components (see spec below). The S54 engine has been fully rebuilt (with receipts) and is producing a very healthy and strong 365.2bhp. As you will see in the dyno sheet the power curve is smooth and linear. Has been dyno'd by ALIVE who are approved by 750MC, this is important if you wish to race in one of their championships you have to use and approved mapper.

Since the build was completed it has done 2 2hr sessions and has been nothing short of perfect.

As you will see from the following spec no expense was spared and to build another would cost around £50k!

Car builder will consider track support by separate negotiation

Currently it has an out of date seat and harness fitted but this will be removed to allow the buyer to fit their own spec seat.  The current seat and harness can be refitted if needed.
