Malaise BMW E12 Power Shortage Remedied By Judicious Application Of Sprint Car 427

Remember that 3-Series BMW with a V12 swap? We liked that car quite a bit, but now we've found one of the cleanest engine-swapped BMWs yet, and for some incomprehensible reason nobody wanted to buy it for $24,000! It's got a Chevy small-block stroked to 427 cubes and equipped with all manner of hop-up madness (including a carburetor, which is why this car isn't a 570i), a Tremec 5-speed, and a Jaguar/Porsche/BMW rear suspension with outboard brakes. Thanks to rjones for the tip! [eBay, via Bring A Trailer]
