BMW 316 Touring or an “evil” car from the past

BMW 316 Touring or an “evil” car from the past

April 2, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The guys from the tuning company Castro Motorsports, which is engaged in the modernization of serial Bavarian brand cars, presented a 540-horsepower version of the old BMW 316 Touring station wagon.

The BMW 3 Series with its internal designation E30 has a special place in the hearts of motorists. For many, this is the best model of the Bavarian brand in its history. Now, a high-performance version of this model in good condition can be bought for $ 30,000. If you do not want to spend a fortune on a “charged” car of the 1990s, there is always another option.

Atelier Castro Motorsports, which is engaged in tuning production BMW models, built an amazing copy of the M3 316 station wagon of the 1991 model. The new AutotopiaLA YouTube video talks about the project, and here’s what you need to know about the car before watching the video.

Under the hood is a supercharged BMW S54 engine, which has been heavily modified and now delivers about 540 hp.

Auto weighs about 1360 kilograms. It is also worth mentioning that the six-cylinder engine is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox, created in 2001-2006 and used in the 3 Series version 330i.

The station wagon will receive large brakes from the M3 (E36). The car now stands on 215/40 R17 wheels, on which BBS Style 19 tires from the BMW 5 Series 2001-2003 are “shod”. The cabin has air conditioning and sports leather seats.
