Beat on die Strasse: Custom E36 Cabrio

I spotted this heavily customized BMW E36 cabriolet at a nearby used car lot. It appears someone went all retro 80's on this 3 series by bringing back the shark nose, E21 taillights, and mono-red paint scheme. Up close, the car is surprisingly presentable with reasonable panel gaps and paint work. Someone spent a lot of money to make this car look this way. Unfortunately, my German skills were not adequate to learn any more information. More pictures after the jump.

  1. What a great find, David. I can honestly say that I think that is the most bizarre custom I have ever seen.

  2. Ah, the ever popular e21 backdate option for the e36...wait, what? Also, it has 4 lug wheels!? Weird. e36s have 5 lug and e30/e21 etc have 4 lug.

  3. That thing started life as an E21. Look at the hood, fuel door, and deck lid. Steve

  4. Up close, it's clearly an W36 that's had the hood, fuel door, and deck lid grafted on. The doors, mirrors, and rockers give it away. I wished I took a picture of the interior as it's all E36.
