F22 Eurofighter? Aren’t those two entirely different fighter jets? Yes, they are, but as any BMW enthusiast worth his or her roundel will tell you, the designation F22 doesn’t belong to the Raptor jet alone: it’s also what Munich calls the 2 Series coupe, upon which the venerable M2 is based.
This particular example, however, has been enhanced significantly by HGK Motorsport.
The Latvian racing tuner has completely transformed the little Bimmer for drifting, stripping it down to its bare chassis and rebuilding it from the ground up. It packs a General Motors LS V8 crate engine prep’d by Mast Motorsports to the tune of 820 horsepower, mated to a Samsonas five-speed sequential transmission and Winters differential.
The list of competition components goes on from there to include a 40-liter FIA fuel cell, Wilwood brakes, a fully adjustable suspension, front and rear crash bars, full roll cage… the works, all enveloped in custom Kevlar bodywork that makes it look as mean as any military aircraft.
It’s been built to Formula Drift specifications, and has just been delivered to MK Racing in Qatar – but you can check it out in this heart-pumping video courtesy of Robyworks.com.
