So, you like things a little abnormal? You having pains for something strange? This Chevrolet powered BMW should be good for what ails you. You will be hard pressed to find another European sports coupe that is “hitting a lick” like this. Check out all the fun, as this well heeled Beamer gets better and better as the day wears on and turns the best times of the day in the cool temps that darkness brings to the New Mexico night.
There is a 355-cubic-inch Chevrolet V8 crammed under that hood, with a huge roots-style supercharger mounted on top. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Turbo 400 transmission. The rear differential is the car’s weak spot. It remains stock and cannot withstand too much abuse. If this cat gets a narrowed Ford 9-inch in the rear and a different camshaft in the front – lookout world.
