Risk It All With This V-12-Swapped BMW E36 Compact

If you like living on the edge, you’re going to love this car. It’s an E36-generation 3 Series Compact that’s had its original inline-four swapped out for a V-12 from an 8-Series. Equipped with upgraded suspension and a better interior, it’s now for sale in Norway.

According to the builder, the goal with this car was to take the smallest BMW and equip it with the biggest production BMW engine. The 316i Compact came from the factory with a 101-hp inline-four, but this one now packs the 5.6-liter V-12 from an 850CSi—sending 400 hp the rear wheels via a manual transmission.
