thx to Koen Van Brusselen

who provided the pix and the pix of Volvo S60.

this Mini races in the same category as the S60( I think), like the category rules said, u can place engine anywhere in the car as long its same as manufactore (if u dunno, BMW owns Mini). Its a 3.0L M3 engine, dyno'd 340whp.

enjoy

kinda old, but cool. the car was built by Team Qvick for the Belcar Belgian GT Championship. Using a loophole in the rules which allows engines from any car made by the manufacturer to be used, they stuffed in a euro S50 B30 from the 1992-95 e36 m3 under the bonnet. they had some suspension problems the first time out, but rest assured, that thing was FAST.

Sorta like the M3 GTR, tweaked M5 v8 in a lightened m3 chassis, kicked ass and took names, and ticked people off so much that they didn't let it back.

Holy Friggin Cow!

I'll be happy as long as it's in the next iteration of GranTurismo...the closest I'll come to driving most of those cars.

Course,

Aren't those mopar motors (I do belive Chrylser builds them) they should have shoved a new Hemi in it! That would have been intresting to say the least!

Hell, I'd just love to see how it'd fit!

:? :barf:

Oh, i'm not sure, actually. I figured since it was BMW they would go off on their own w/ it, and i also figure that DaimlerChrysler wouldn't really want to be helping their major competition.

If it's true... Hell i still want it, i may have to eat myself but I STILL WANT IT :o :hitit:

Yes, the stock engine used by the Mini is a DaimlerChysler product.
