Arrow BMW Z3 ///M Coupe V10 (S85) build

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hallo from Munich

Even though there is no Z3M forum at bimmerpost, I hope some of you are interested in my new project.
David said I may show my Z3///M V10 up here, thanks for that David!

Just before I finished my E46 M3 GTR build, I was thinking of my next project car which should merge my love to the Z3///M and the strongest NON turbo blown engine, the ///M GmbH ever constructed.
Since I already own a S54 Z3///M Roadster, the mission was clear:

BMW Z3///M V10 S85 Coupe

The basic for my project:

So get out of here, old S54:

As the brakes doesn't even fit my old 18" BBS LM, I got some BBS E88.
I love them!!!!

Because there was some trouble with the steering rack, Jäger Metall welded a whole new exhaust system for me. 42mm (instead of 38) long tube headers, original cat and nice silencers:

I'm shocked at how well that fit in there! Was there any extensive trimming/modifying?

Yes, some trimming was needet...
Steeringrack was replaced and reconstructed with E46 parts, some work on the chassis was necessary, motor and gearbox supports are all new constructed and many more.
Sorry, it's a little bit difficult for me to describe all the work in correct english

The rear subframe is very well at the moment, although I'm sure I have to reinforce it anyway. But that's a job for the very best body manufacturer I know, Markus Schaufuss here in Germany.

My aspiration was to get the engine in the car, without change it's outer contures.
It should look like every other Coupe with nice wheels

Thank you very much for your interest and enthusiasm!

Videos will follow as soon as the car is fired up the first time! I'm looking forward to this soooo hard!!!

Amazing. I had a 2007 M6 and a 1996 Z3 so I can only imagine the power.

What's your 0-100 time?

Not that I don't like this project, but you offered up a s54 z3 coupe?!?

You know how many of those are made?
Why not a S50 coupe?

Why not a S50 coupe?
Guido, I know
And that's why I did NOT offer up an original S54 Coupe.
It was an 1999 S50 Coupe with an absolutely disastrous S54 engine retrofit. So I was happy to rescue this Coupe with a clean and professional S85 swap

jep, and I hope there will be much more then 500HP
Long Tube headers, cat delete, electronic power steering pump instead of mechanic and Alpha-N mapping should create some power

Nice to see you thought of that.

I saw the s54 enginecover in the picture so that threw me off.

That's awesome, did you all do it yourself or is it a Manhart Racing build? Keep us posted!

It's a Do-It-Yourself project, no Manhart, Hartge or else.
