Not like it is hard to misconstrue the entire point of the custom build when it’s facing you at the sideways angle with tire smoke pouring out of the rear wheel wells, and there is legitimately more to this custom BMW M2 build than initially meets the eye.
And theatrics aside, it pays to get up close and personal with HGK’s Eurofighter, and thankfully there’s the Speedhunters article on the build we found via Jalopnik. In it, we learn that a strange looking body panels are actually kevlar.
It’s what’s under the hood, though, that is most impressive because in lieu of a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six, famed drift car tuner HGK went with the small block Chevy V8 engine.
Without any forced induction meddling, the engine makes a total of 820 hp at 7,000 rpm and the staunch 678 lb-ft of torque.Even without a flat turbo torque curve, there is at least 590 lb-ft available from 4,000 RPM, and thanks to the unimpeded roar of the engine, you would be forgiven for spending plenty of time close to the 8,000 rpm redline.
Power still goes to a rear, which is obvious when you consider that this vehicle is built to be judge, jury, inevitable executioner to its set of rear tires.
Its appetite for tire smoke is easily satiated by engine’s power output alone, and being built to Formula Drift standards, it has to compete too, and which is why clever weight management has helped this M2 tip the scales at only 2,645 pounds. Well, in short, this thing is the one-off piece of enviable magic. We are even lucky to get a taste like this.
