    VAC Motorsports | E92 M3 6MT Track Day Car -Complete Build

    Click here to enlarge

    Disclaimer- this car was built to our client's spec. Seats, wheels, steering wheel/brakes and color scheme idea were provided by our client. Also, the rear brakes were on back order when these pics were taken, they will be on the car shortly ;-)

    Our client brought us this 6MT E92 M3 fresh from the auction. It was in need of collision repair but the goal was simple: build a safe, well sorted and reasonably priced dedicated track day car. This is just the first phase of it's life - I suspect it will be a continual work in progress like many/most of the cars that our clients own.

    As with every job, every aspect of this job was done in house.

    Some highlights:
    -E92 M3 6MT
    -3230lbs ~400lb savings

    Safety/Interior:
    -Grand Am spec cage with L/R NASCAR door bars and dash bar. Done 100% in house.
    -Lexan windows
    -VAC race seat install kit
    -TRS harnesses
    -VAC steering wheel disconnect
    -VAC diamond plate floor pans

    Suspension/Braking:
    -Brembo 365/345 kit
    -Nitron NTR R3 3 way adjustable suspension
    -Powergrid links
    -VAC studs/spacers

    Data:
    -AiM Sports Pista
    -AiM Sports Smarty Cam

    Drivetrain:
    -VAC remote oil sensor manifold
    -Header back Fabspeed exhaust
    -OS Giken Grand Am Spec clutch
    -Active Autowerke tune
    -Aerocatch latches

    His E36 has the same color scheme going on. It's what he likes and when its a function built track day car, I can't say anything bad.

    my gawd, awesome work! I figure I'd need to bring in at least $500k a year for that kind of a lifestyle....very impressive. Wondering is there an estimate to this build cost?

    $500k a year would be quite nice...

    I doubt anyone is going to say what this cost.
