Fantastic 1972 2002 restomod with e39 M5 S62 V8 engine

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Another amazing restomod, this time starting from a pretty bad 1972 shell and converted into this beauty! it was this person's 1st build too!

It's been fitted with the e39 M5 S62 V8 engine!

For the purists who are horrified by this, just look at the labour of love, the attention to detail (rigidifying the shell, reduce the unsprung weight, locating the engine as far back as possible for weight distribution...). The final result speaks for itself...

Was just going to post "he should start his own business". Looks like you are!

Incredibly awesome first build, and...that V8 sound coming from a 2002...love it!


Good luck!

Better use of that motor than the Z8. Well done.
