S50 to S62 Conversion | 1999 M Coupe | Dakar Yellow | Gray/Black | Carbon Goeke Spoiler Wing

 

This M Coupe was posted on z3mcoupe.com by M-Center of Moscow, Russia. The Coupe started it’s life as an S50B32 engined Coupe, and now has an 8 cylinder S62B50 from an E39 M5, producing nearly 500 hp. That kind of power necessitates reinforcement of the stock trunk floor. M-Center strengthened the floor and utilized a dual ear E36 M3 diff cover by adding a second hanger. The S62 engine is significantly taller than the stock S50 engine, thus requiring modifications to allow the hood to close. A Vac Motorsports dry sump oil system, which not only ensures that the engine won’t be starved of oil on the track, allows removal of the S62 oil pan allowing crucial clearance to be added to the engine bay. Plumbed from the engine bay is a hatch mounted 3 gallon dry sump tank containing the oil.  Aside from the engine and chassis mods there are plenty more: Custom exhaust, 6 speed E39 M5 transmission, ceramic clutch, Fidanza LTW flywheel, custom length driveshaft, Porsche 911 GT3 RS 997 brakes, KW V3 coilovers, H&R struts, BBS LM wheels, Nitto AE01 tires, custom roll cage, Sparco EVO Plus seats, Schroth seat belts, a what looks to me like a Carbon Goeke spoiler. All in all, this a very cool one-of-a-kind M Coupe.
