Seller Description

This is a BMW 2000 M Coupe with a Vorshlag LS2 Conversion. I bot the car in 2002 with 29000mi.  It has 71500 miles on the body today and every bushing and seal has been replaced during the track build.

The carbon fiber hood, roof and bumper / splitter were made by Trinity Motorsports / Sean Bayliff who built the Cannon Ball Run s62powered M Coupe. The Cage and safety preparation was done by Deman Motorsports ( Grand Am and Tudor GS wining Race Team).  The LS2 motor and T 56 Transmission has 30,000 miles on it. The conversion was done with the best of parts through Vorshlag in Dallas. TX.

The car was tuned by Chuck Cow of Corvette of Westchester and puts down 425 RWHP / 440 tq with cam, headers, hi flow ceramic cats and custom exhaust installed by Rogue Engineering.

Every window is custom molded lexan except for the windscreen.  car comes with 2 sets of  wheels. I set of ARC and the other VSL. Brakes are from C6 Grand Sport with 2 piece rotors.

Suspension has custom valved Koni ( recently rebuilt ) to match springs. Front control arms are from SLR. All bushings have been replaced with either heim joints or 75d hard poly. The rear wing is a Brooks Elite.

No expense was spared in this car. If you are looking for a real drivers car that is light, sorted and has a fast and reliable power train married to a unique platform...then you are looking at the right car.

I think you get the point. Car weighs 2700lbs and has 425 at wheels. Tons of grip and aero. Auto-x, Time Attack, HPDE what ever your passion.

Buy this car for a fraction of what it would cost to build.  I an setting at a reasonable reserve price.   Its worth every bit of  80k+  to build a car like this plus 100 of hours in sourcing the materials and planning the build.  There is not a scratch on the car. But it is a track monster and should be purchased for that purpose only.

Another huge price drop to just $30,000 from $40,000. You definitely could not build something similar for the price.
