An 18 year old has taken the V10 from an M5 and stuffed it into a Z3 M Coupe, which he plans to race.
For many 18 year olds, priorities often consist of (in no specific order): friends, school, not going to school, and deciding what's next after high school graduation. While many still love to work on their cars, it's not easy to undertake a project as big as this. For 18 year old Bulgarian Denislav Shishev, it took not only persistence, but also raw talent to churn out something like this. He transformed a junk yard-bound BMW Z3 M Coupe (why it was trashed in the first place is a crime in and of itself) into a V10-powered beast.

All told, the newly modified Bimmer has 530hp and 442lb-ft of torque and weighs just 3,130 pounds. The 5.0-liter V10 came from a donor E60 M5. Up until now, the young owner had been racing in an E30 M3, but he will reportedly be switching to this one-of-a-kind V10 Z3 Coupe. Be sure to check out all of the detailed pictures of the build.
