Admittedly, it’s still too early on in the project to say whether this will happen for sure — he hasn’t even finalized the design yet. But if an M3 does fit underneath this retro-tastic design, I don’t doubt it will have somewhere north of 500 horsepower. Because why the hell not.
Jonathan just sent me an email letting me know that the Helios, and the Cunningham-inspired project aren’t actually one in the same. The Helios project will still likely use a lot of the details originally outlined, while the second, separate project — a Cunningham-inspired coupe based on the M3 — could still happen, but a lot of details need to be worked out.
