A company out of Indiana called Gruppe5 Motorsports has a version of the BMW 2002 that it will sell you for nearly $1 million. The car is intense with a BMW V10 under the hood making up to 803 horsepower and 2400 pounds of downforce to push it onto the road. The car is meant to revive the spirit of the wide-body Group 5 2002 from the ’70s.
It’s worth noting that a complete and functional form of this car doesn’t exist yet. The engine shouldn’t be a problem though as it comes from Steve Dinan and has a new company called CarBahn Autoworks. The chassis is from Riley Technologies.
It wants to build 300 total 2002 units with 200 of them packing a 5.8L V10 and 100 of them with a 5.9L V10. Fill the car with race fuel and the 5.8L makes 744 horsepower and the 5.9L will produce 803 horsepower. Essentially this is a real racing car with pushrod suspension that is fully adjustable and a racing interior. The 5.8L car will start at $75,000 and the 5.9L car at $975,000.
