  1. Wow it's absolutly amazing. 600 HP on a 2 litre engine, in 1978!! Its even better than the 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo with 500 HP and 2.2 litre.

    And this doesn't have turbo?
  2. Re: 600HP!!!!!

    600 Hp is mighty impressive by any standard. However the engine these cars came with as standard also had a great legacy of giving the M10 engine block to the BMW F1 turbo cars, which ran a modified M10 block, 4 valve head with two camshafts, approx 4.0+ BAR of turbo boost, 1.5L displacement and produced over 1280hp... Now there is a engine one would love to get transplanted into a 320i...

    Only thing I can say is one would go broke just spending cash on tires <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    This is awesome! Why doesn't BMW have anything like this today. Or maybe they do, if anybody knows please tell! I want to know!
  4. Re: 600HP!!!!!

    I'm more and more sure this is the highest (stock) HP bmw ever made... front spoiler must give some serious drag
  5. Re: 600HP!!!!!

    damn I'd just wish go-karts would be somewhat controllable with an engine like that in the back *longer wheelbase necessary for sure*, if anyone ever put a "real" car's engine in a kart instead of a Rotax thing, just let me know, I'm more than curious to hear about it.

    just the weight/hp ratio.. less kilos than horses..

    but about this bmw: oh man it rocks!!!
