insane E30 PT1 and PT2

Not sure how many of you guys follow SpeedHunters
A JDM-er friend of mine got wind that i ditched the JDM lifestyle for something more... euro

anyways, she sent me these: check out these E30's. The internals are crazy. a tranny from Alan Prost's F1 car made it into these.

Oh sh*t I knew the first one had been burnt to a crisp, I didn't know they had built a new one.... that thing looks bomb, it reminds me of the audi 90 imsa car with the smooth widebody look.
Looking forward to videos

and.... epic race interior

It's cool and all, but every time I look at it I say 'WHY'.... coulda beefed up way cooler cars than this (more aerodynamic), not to mention not much E30 left in this car except maybe the taillights and the window cowl panel up front lol.

Yeah, not my cup of tea, but I'd certainly rip it around.

As far as I know the E30 chassis is chosen for its low weight, good stiffness, excellent suspension setup and plentiful accommodation up front. Newer cars typically come with all manner of impact safety features that weigh a ton and aren't needed for outright stiffness of the chassis.
