BMW E36 M3 Race car. GTS2/3


Recommended Posts

I am new to these forums and thought I would post this for sale.


I am open to trades for this for a street legal car. Mostly looking for a 996 911. I also an not afraid of a project or a car that needs some work. I will post more pictures when the weather clears up and I can pull it outside. If anyone wants to see something particular let me know and I can send something over.


I have spent the last two years building this car and have had it out on the track twice this year. However my plans have changed and as I want to continue doing track days I need something for the street as well. The car was built for NASA GTS 2 (restricted) or can run competitively in 3 as well. The car weighs 2650 pounds with ¼ tank of fuel.


The body is a 95 M3. It was a one owner car with only 70k miles on it. It was an unbelievably clean shell that was always kept in a garage. Every last square inch of this car has been meticulously gone through and in perfect condition. Pretty much every single part on this car has been upgraded with the highest quality parts or replaced with new OEM parts. Many parts have been custom machined and I still have the Solidworks models for them. It is 100% track ready.


The details of the build and I’m sure I’m leaving something out…
