    So last weekend I went to the Eurofest car show that goes on at the BMW plant in my area. It was mostly made up of older cars but I enjoy them just as much as a newer ones, but anyways here you go, enjoy.


    I had the luck of parking beside this beautiful machine.

    Yeah the MBG GT's like in that first one are sweet, but my mom currently has a roadster and my dad used to have a TR6 and it was nice as well

    Hell yeah, a 1.5 four banger making 1280+hp is crazy.

    That engine was built back to factory specs by a BMW engineer and he continued tuning on it. It eventually made 1560hp on 5 bar of boost.

    Yes, I said bar.

    btw..... thats 20 years ago..... twenty years...... TWENTY MOTHER FUCKING YEARS and you tell me a fucking 40hp hybrid that gets 30mpg is "cutting edge"

    Seriously... if these manufacturers don't start producing something worth a damn the entire automotive lifestyle is going to die off in this next generation of people.

    Amazing. A ~1400hp 1.5L? They must have been running 75psi or something.

    72.5psi. Damn I was close! Sick though. I wonder if all the internals were kryptonyte-titanium alloy? I mean, it can pwn superman, it should be able to handle 73psi.
