700HP BMW E30 Turbo PIKES PEAK Onboard || M52 Engine Swap + DCT

This the spectacular BMW E30 Turbo built and driven by Tim Hardy, a Pikes Peak HillClimb specialist, originally bought on Craigslist for only 450 Dollars and turned into an immense HillClimb Monster over the years.

A 1988 model, it is now fitted with a Turbocharged BMW M52 Inline 6 engine producing upwards of 700Hp and this 2022 Edition also marked the debut of another quite unique modification, the 7-Speed DCT Gearbox.

All this in a machine that has already gone sub-10 minute on the legendary mountain but is certainly hoping for perfect weather to reach an even more impressive chrono in the future and show just how far a truly “built, not bought” Monster can be taken to.
