ENEOS Throws a One-Two Punch at SEMA ’21 With a Honda-Powered BMW

If you’re not already familiar with ENEOS lubricants, you’re missing out on quite a resume. The Tokyo-based brand has manufacturing and sales outlets around the globe, has worked with numerous OEMs and industry-leading race teams for decades to develop and provide cutting edge engine and transmission oils and, in recent years, has always brought something interesting to the Las Vegas Convention Center during SEMA week.

For 2021, ENEOS teamed up with brand ambassador Faruk Kugay, who is also well-known in the competitive drift world as a driver, instructor, event organizer, and judge. Faruk set out to put together an older BMW E30 that was left for dead and nowhere near the sort of condition it is today. We dove into the initial tear down and then showed you the engine mock up. Less than a month later, it looks incredible on the show floor.

Since the last time you saw it, the 318i C-pillar was completely removed and replaced with a metal M3 pillar conversion from E30-Garage of Germany – the same company that supplied the carbon fiber roof, all of which was sourced through CATuned. Another touch of carbon is found “swooping” off the top of the M3 rear wing in the form of a gurney flap that sits atop a genuine M3 trunk.
