What do you do with yourself after building a V10-powered E30? You do it all over again, this time with a slightly more exotic subject. This Lotus Exige gets stretched and widened in order to fit the M5-sourced 10-cylinder power-plant, culminating in a very sleek and capable supercar-fighter that gets put through it’s paces at the track.

I love how Volvos are the domestic “do it all” cars of the Scandinavian region. They get pulled apart and re-built in a host of different ways that the rest of the world would never dare. This 242 begins it’s build thread with a BMW v10 already nestled in the engine bay, and things only get more serious from there on in. I wish there was some more technical imagery to go with this one, but it’s still a great build and won’t take you too long to get through.

Many of you have probably seen this incredible car before on the pages of Speedhunters, where the team documented some of the build and shared top-notch desktops of the finished product. Recently, Build-Threads reader Geoff emailed me a link to a full gallery of the build hosted on the workshops own website, so I thought there was enough visual treats to share with you guys, even if some of you are already familiar with the car.

Not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for the crazy people out there who are willing to tackle insane driveline swaps. I mean seriously, at what point in your life do you sit there and think to yourself “You know what, I think I’m going to put a Viper V10 into a Saab 93 wagon?”. Pure insanity, I love it.

As the title says, a V10 from an M5 wasÂ transplanted into a Z3 Bimmer, the only catch is that apparently it was done by a teenager from Bulgaria!

I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say a bad word about E30 M3’s. Maybe I’m not listening hard enough, or maybe they’re just one of those cars that are commonly lusted the world over. I just stumbled across this awesome build on VWvortex. The car not only receives an engine swap, but also new subframes and suspension pick-up points, essentially making it a whole chassis swap with only the appearance of the original shell remaining.
