M34?  Jeez, you mean, an S38? 


You'd need a tougher diff.


And the radiators would have to go on the sides of the engine.


And you'd probably need beefier front springs.  And brakes.


But it would be a rocket off the light, if you could keep the rear tires from frying.

Tub it and narrow a Ford 9" and put some 16" wide slicks on?  That might do it...


Or put it in the back seat and use an M1 transaxle!


You didn't find it in the search because if anyone's done it, they're too insane to

waste their time on something as boring as the internets.




do it.

Maybe ask Holger Hubel of Speedworx: master@speedworx.de .


He has at least started a project of this kind some time ago. Major modifications to the body but on the last photos that I saw the S38 sat in the engine bay in a quite promising position. Still far from ready to drive with my last views but I didn´t follow on a too regular base.


All project pics seem to be taken offline today though. Didn´t find them on the net anymore and think I didn´t save nothing to my harddisk. Maybe project has been cancelled. But dropping a line will not cost you anything.


If a 4 Liter V8 M60 (also used in E34 ;) ) might be enough you can take a look here:


Maybe take a look at the other projects, too. There is an E9 CS that has been "married" with the lower chassis part, enigine and drivetrain of a M5 E39. Kinda quality work.


Best regards, Lars.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
