1995 BMW E36 M3 race car, under 70K miles, race winner


Recommended Posts

I'm selling my recently acquired M3 as I want to move into a Radical. This car is awesome- very quick and drives excellent. I'm currently racing in NASA GTS2 and it is very competitive- especially if it had a better driver behind the wheel. Tech inspections done and it's ready to roll.


I have a restrictor plate currently to be GTS2 legal. It's 200HP/200 torque. Without the plate it's 248hp/220 torque. The car roughly weighs 2,800 lbs. I have dyno's for both if you'd like them.


Car has been fully built-out to compete in BMW CCA CR (IP Rules legal) and NASA events. Has been proven to be one of the fastest IP cars in the N/E and eastern USA over the last several years, currently holds IP track records at Mosport, and WGI (per previous owner).


I have binders full of service records including the original build- even the original title. I bought this a year ago and have proceeded to put a lot of money into it. It's been professionally maintained (with an open checkbook) by Soulspeed Performance (Austin) and Texas Track Works (Dallas).


Here is the list of the original build along with what I've done to it in the last year.
