A Corvette in a German Suit
The Corvette is American’s Sports Car. There is no debate, but if you’ve ever wondered how it would look in a German GT suit or thought to yourself, “I’d really love a BMW M3 but the power is SERIOUSLY lacking,” it’s your lucky day. Currently on Ebay is a 1997 BMW M3 powered by good ol’ American muscle. That’s right, this M3 is powered by an LS3 that pushes power through a Tremec T-56. Now, we’re not sure why this conversion was performed (the seller said that he purchased the car this way and doesn’t know the previous owner’s motivation), but the results seem pretty strong.
The car comes with a host of other mods including upgraded valves, valve springs, pushrods, long tube headers, and 92mm throttle body. The suspension has also been upgraded with Koni struts, H&R springs and Kosei wheels. According to the listing, the car produces 442hp at the wheels, is located in Florida and has been bid up to $8,655, at the time this was written. What do you think, is it worth it? Would you buy an M3 with a Corvette drivetrain? Or is this thing better than a stock M3?
