Stumbled onto this picture but can't find anything on it.

Not condoning V8 swaps but it would be interesting if there is a build thread

Don´t know anything about the orange car pictured.

 

But if you´ll look here:

MKO

you´ll find a quite nice silver 02 with a V8 swap, too. Maybe also click on the E9 Coupe - they paired an M5 E39 chassis with the top part of an E9 body. The E9 is offered for sale at 178000EUR if the infos are still up-to-date. Don´t know anyone from the company personally and always wondered how they managed to get such extensive kind of modifications street-legal here in Germany. Normally they´ll instantly put you into a straightjacket and bring you to a madhouse if you´ll show up at german TÜV with such a thing. Maybe some family ties were helpful ... I don´t know.

 

Somewhere there were built threads for both the 02 and the E9 on the internet, but I forgot where I´ve saved the link. Will add if I might find it.

 

Best regards, Lars.

Saving some $$$ maybe? New chrome trim parts/re-chroming is quite expensive, you know...

;)

 

Best regards, Lars.

looks like it isnt a 2002...

- the mirrors are set on the quarter windows

- the hood doesn't have cowl drains like the 2002

- maybe i am seeing things

So that's where the 'new' mini has been getting its styling cues from.

 

Yes, technically interesting.  Visually not my bucket of bolts.

Hmmmm... Not as excited as I thought i'd be. Graphics are too much. Candy Tangerine might be the most played-out modifed car color ever I was hoping for a more Inka solid orange... Front bumper=no. Wheel choice is also a resounding meh... But I do love that motor :)
