      Teen Builds V10 Powered M Coupe

      http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=418262

      Many 18 year olds have lofty car dreams, but few have accomplished what young 18 year old Bulgarian BMW enthusiast Denislav Shishev been able to do by transforming a junked Z3 M Coupe body into a V10 442rwhp M Coupe racer, powering just 3,086 pounds. The 5.0L V10 is the high powered motor from the E60 M5.

      Impressively, Denislav had been racing with an E30 M3, but will be piloting this monster Z3 going forward.

      Check out the hundreds of photos detailing every step of this monster M Coupe build: http://www.denislavshishev.com/car/bmw-z3-v10-project/

      I thought the first few pictures were the "after" photos resulting from a teenager with a V10 M Coupe.

      Glad to see that that's the way he bought it.

      Love the paint.

      Looks like he strengthened the rear subframe quite a bit.

      Awesome build.
