Over on Jalopnik, there’s a post about a very curious part being offered for sale on eBay. It’s a turbocharger. Not just any spin-loving snail though, as this one is the type formerly employed by BMW to force air into its M12 Formula One engines. Yes, you can have the turbo components that help Megatron engines produce upwards of 1,400 horsepower.
It’s not cheap, of course. The asking price is nearly $12,000. That’s a lot of coin for a setup that didn’t even perform well in its day. Still, if you’re a BMW fan with money burning a hole in your pocket, it could as least make for some amazing automotive art.
It is certainly insane. It would be more insane if someone managed to swap this into a setup under their hood. Now I’m curious what might exist for other cars that’s on the same level of insanity.
What have you found for sale online that could be adapted to work in your own vehicle?
