Absolutely bonkers Street-Legal BMW E39 540i go kart

Check out this chopped exocar 1997 BMW 540i. Will Knytych, a Honda Dealership Technician in Alabama, re-imagined this 5-Series into something someone may have never thought to do themselves. It comes equiped with a 4.4L BMW V8 (M62). However, this one has nearly half of the weight on it so the 282hp/318tq feels much quicker. Oh, and it can definitely get sideways. You have to see it to believe it. Check out photos and even a video of it driving below.

Casual Driving Is Exactly Like A Normal E39 But Without The Sluggish, Almost 4,000 Lb Feel.

Mad Max approves of this rolling depiction of terror and might.
