A physics truck just turned over outside. There's physics everywhere!

How nicely it's been done, it is a shame they cut up an original M3 body for that. They could have gone for an ordinary E30 body and go from there.

Not sure but it looked like they did cut up a regular E30 body then added the flares and rear window treatment. Another clue is the shock towers up front...the ones they cut out weren't far enough forward to have been an M3.

it was a real m3 - look at the rear window and also scroll down in the original topic - there's a photo of the original car, because several persons asked the same question smiling smiley

Unfortunately the original artical doesn't say specifically that it was an M3 to start with; only that it will be an M3 in shape after it's finished.
The early pictures clearly show the rear quarter panels to be standard flat E30 ones. Later photos show the flare being welded on. The rear window piece has sim[ly already been added.
There are also the standard shock towers up front that look like standard E30 ones rather than the more vertical ones found on the M3 and the iX.

look at the pictures carefully, it's an m3 allright

the rear panels:



original panels cut, but the margin is there:



the original car (last post on page 2) :

why would the shock towers be more vertical in an m3 ? if anything, i would expect them to be more inclined.
anyway, the space between the towers and the firewall looks the same as it was in my 320i.
