1995 BMW M3 Turbo


It’s always been a dream of mine to have a car that can do rolling burnouts at highway speeds. A recurring object of this desire is a big, insane Mercedes for the sheer madness, but making a monster M3 is always an entertaining proposition. As opposed to most modified E36s, the exterior of this M3 is almost completely, beautifully stock. It doesn’t even have a spoiler, which is an instant E36 mojo-killer. What it does have hiding behind the commuter-car exterior is an insane 606 horsepower at the rear wheels. That’s roughly 700 at the crank. Driving it will most certainly induce one kind of fear, while the maintenance and tuning will elicit another. But if you’re going to turbocharge an E36, this is exactly the way to do it.

This might be the best tuned E36 we’ve seen here. I obviously love the sedans, and it will take some doing to wrap your (and your mechanics’) hands around this project to keep it going, but holy cow. It emphasizes the simple greatness of the E36 and backs it up with something to scare anyone who dares to strap into this thing. $34k is the top end of the E36 spectrum and probably a bit more than where this will land, but it’s clear much time, energy, and money have been spent making this car a total sleeper.
