Here’s the interesting part, though. The ‘Franken M3’ weighs in at an alleged 3,000 pounds, which puts it around 150 pounds more than the original car… V10 included. After the build, Piper Motorsport mentioned that the weight distribution actually improved in the process. Not bad for a four-cylinder to V10 swap.
With only 30,000 miles on the clock and that gargantuan $224,500 price tag – this stunning E30 is certainly not a BMW most people can afford. Though if you are looking for something a bit less extravagant, there are a few more down-to-earth E30 M3s up for grabs too.
