It was an experiment in the late 50s to make a speedboat with a BMW 507 engine and design. But then the boat disappeared for decades, until a young guy heard of the boat, found and restored it. The BMW 507 is a very rare BMW roadster, only around 250 cars have been produced in the 1950s. And this is the only BMW 507 boat with many parts from the 507 Roadster, including the engine. The engine was BMW’s aluminum alloy OHV V8, of 3,168 cubic centimeters (193.3 cu in) displacement, with pushrod-operated overhead valves. It had two Zenith 32NDIX two-barrel carburetors, a chain-driven oil pump, high-lift cams, a different spark advance curve, polished combustion chamber surfaces, and a compression ratio of 7.8:1, yielding 150 horsepower (110 kW) DIN at 5,000 rpm.

The E36 BMW M3 is one of those older generation BMW M3 models that you never get tired of, for some it was the most perfect and well balanced M3 ever made. And adding some tasteful mods to it, make this E36 M3 stand out even more. The car’s design is made upon BMW’s philosophy of form follows function, both in the interior and exterior, all combined with potent naturally aspirated engine, nicely delivering the power to the rear wheels. It was back in 1994 when first BMW E36 M3 cars were delivered to United States.

The E36 M3 used the S50B30US engine with 240 bhp (179 kW; 243 PS) and 305 N·m (225 lb·ft) compared to Euro models, a different suspension setup and it did a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time in about six seconds.

It was available with a five-speed manual and automatic transmissions, allowing a great option whether you were used to an automatic transmission or simply wanted the excitement of the manual in aggressive driving. With 1996–1999 model years, the BMW E36 M3 had the engine’s displacement bumped up to 3.2 litres. It still had 240 bhp (179 kW; 243 PS), but it received an increase in torque levels to 320 N·m (240 lb·ft). The manual gearbox remained a 5-speed despite the European versions being upgraded to 6-speed. Then in 1997 it was also available as a saloon, then as convertible in 1998. Production of the saloon was halted in 1998, while the other models continued until 1999. Final US sales figures include a total of 18,961 coupes, 7,760 sedans and 6,211 convertibles.

This featured silver BMW M3 comes with a set of aftermarket Avantgarde M310 wheels installed. Coming in Hyper Silver, they complement quite well the similarly finished exterior of this vehicle. Provided you enjoy the classic wheel designs like the one seen here, the flush fitment together with a good looking stance seen here, provide a perfect way to update the older performance car. Further references on this setup are available in the media gallery we’ve added. Enjoy!
