BMW E46 M3 racecar



BMW E46 M3 racecar

Base is a BMW E46 330i shell (2000) which is converted to use E46 M3 (S54) powertrain. Built by a professional racecar builder specialized into BMW (Edva Motorsport,,


The car is fully race prepped and has gone through full suspension rebuild on 2016 (all parts changed) and full engine rebuild on 2017. Only 2hrs on engine, dyno time included. Winning car in Finnish BMW Racing Club series. For reference the car has been lapping Finnish Alastaro race circuit in 1:22.8 (official timing in competition) with E-registered Kumho V70A 245/35 semi-slick tires (pre recent engine rebuild with ca. 25 hp less and weighing ca. 30kg more than currently).


Car was originally build for slicks but suspension set up was converted for semislicks due to the race series regulations. Can be easily converted to slicks again (includes required springs).


Car is extremely easy to drive, well set up with exceptionally good balance.
