Brabham Racing BT92 is one of those cars that we all love to have, but not many can afford it. Despite being based on the BMW E92 M3, the Brabham Racing BT92 is a total different beast from the regular M3 model. Built by Brabham Racing, the BT92 has been upgraded to racing specifications in almost every aspect.

The dimensions of the cylinder on the original engine have also been modified: 93.3mm-by-80.2mm against the original 4.0-liter V8’s 92.0mm-by-75.2mm. The all-new intake and exhaust systems have been optimized to produce more power: 494 hp at 8,300 rpm and 354 pound-feet of torque at 5,700 rpm.

Since weight has always played a decisive factor in the performance of any M car, the BT92 weighs approximately 110 lbs less than the regular M3 Coupe, thanks to the carbon fiber exterior parts. Of course, the BT92 comes with a hefty price, $310,000, a number that will scary away many buyers.

The Brabham Racing BT92 is also a tough car to  get for a test drive, but the few selected ones that drove it, swore by its racing performance. Nick Hall at Wildestcars spent some time behind the wheel of a BT92 and took a short video of its driving experience.

Our favorite part? That engine sound……

    What if standard M cars looked like this? Would it be too much?

    It does look the business though…!

    Two questions. How much would it cost to fit this engine in my Z4 M Coupe and would anyone like to buy one of my kidneys? Liver? Sorry, arms and legs not for sale. (How would i shift gears?)

    This car has nothing to do with the Brabham family, despite the name. Seems the family hadn’t kept up the trademarks, so someone named Michael Trick secured rights to the Brabham name and produced this car.

    What rims are on the car

    A masterpiece. The driver could push it harder and the BEAST would swallow the road without any problem.
