No rust and with the rev limit put to nearly 8k rpm it's sings beautifully!

Engine: S38B38 tuned to output 384.5bhp
LSD: 3.73:1 with 80% S.
Brakes: M5 e34.
Suspension: Koni.
Antiroll: M5 e34.
Exhaust: M5 stainless steel headers with custom made 2x2.5" stainless steel pipes.

Top speed: 289km/h.





That's all for now folks!

Cheers,

Michael/Sweden

It's a little bit of a "sleeper". Original interior, blue. Very nice interior overall. The only thing I will tune on this car is the suspension. Koni sport shocks isn't that good. Coil overs and some other suspension related parts has to be bought in the nearby future ;-)

Requesting details on the S38B38 heart please!
Is it a stock motor with tuned ECU or different engine management or do you have different internals (cams, etc...)

Thanks.

Sorry for a late rely!

It was a tuned ECU. The cylinder head was tuned and it was giving 384.5hp output. Seems like better breathing is the shit! ;-)

However, it's sold now and I miss it. The Alpina B7 Turbo gives a lot of joy and as soon as my BMW 2002 Alpina Replica" is up and going I have enough cars anyway!

Cheers, Michael
