This story started with my buddie Eddie deciding that after we built him E30 M3 vert replica he now wanted a coupe with some power and lots of custom touches. Being a good friend that he is we decided to take the challenge once again! Easier said than done but luckily, at that time, I just bought rolled over E30 M3 for my Touring conversion so there were many parts that we could use on this build including the rear roof and rear glass section. This is how it started with us getting the car and bringing it to the shop (early tails e30 coupe).
We quickly added some M3 parts onto the coupe to see what direction we wanted to go with and got an idea for the build, more or less
Some of the goodies
The body work started pretty quick once the car got to our shop.
During that time we took the car to Diego at AMS Autowerks to do the S50 Swap
Unfortunately I did not take any pics of the car in spray booth as I was away on vacation but here it is painted
Many many hours went into putting this car together piece by piece.
Until one day when the car was ready to be reviled
Both of these E30 M3s were built using the organ donor parts of an original e30 M3 race car that was lost due to a race accident
And this is how the car appears today.
Judging the the owner’s smile and the reaction from the people at the shows – job well done !
PS The rumor is that Eddie is ready to build another E30 M3 coupe, even wilder, stay tuned 🙂
