Default Frankenstein - BMW M3 E30 looking Truck with 540i V8 swap

This guy had a wild imagination. Car started life as a BMW 316i Coupe E30.







From article:
The anemic 102PS (101hp) 1.6-liter inline four was replaced with a 286PS (282hp) 4.0-liter V8 from an E34 540i paired to a short-shifting 5sp manual; the steering system was borrowed from an E36 M3, while the new brake system is said to have been sourced from an unidentified M5.

17 pictures and full article

Looks like throw-up....both in color and concept.

I can appreciate the craftsmanship though. It must do burnouts like nobody's business since there looks to be no weight over the rear wheels.
