If you think this is your daily cool car then you have another think comin' ! Get ready to be blown away...

    Mother Russia is known (by me, of course) through the cold weather and vodka. And saxy girls. Vodka fans as well :) But when it comes to custom culture, choppers and hot rods...not so much.
There was this cool story about a Russian hot rod I posted a while ago....here  .
Nevermind that now...

   This story is about how an Russian owner of an BMW M6 decided to use that ''poor'' car as a donor car (used with the terms donor bike here hahaha) and change it's original looks. Creating a shell aka a body of a Soviet car, the GAZ-21. And put some coolness while they were at it. Basicly they took the technology, and all the sci-fi stuff that the M6 has to offer plus the interior and slammed a cool GAZ 21 body on it.

   And as you can see from the pics some serious metal shapping, cutting and grinding were in order to make that work together perfectly.

Just some stats and numbers, via Wiki :

    ''The new BMW M6 concept made its debut at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series, introduced in 2004. It shares the same 5.0 L V10 S85 engine and SMG III gearbox with the E60 M5, and produces 373 kW (500 hp) / 520 N·m (380 lb·ft).

     BMW claims it accelerates from 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds. Road & Track (Feb 2006) measured the 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) time as 4.1 seconds. The top speed is 333 kilometres per hour (207 mph)[citation needed] but it is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

   The M6 has the same 'power button' as the M5 which modifies the throttle response. From ignition, the car delivers 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp), but engaging the M button allows the full 373 kW (507 PS; 500 hp). It weighs 1,710 kg (3,770 lb) Road & Track (Feb 2006) compared to the 1,660 kg (3,650 lb) E92 BMW M3 Road & Track (Dec 2007) thanks to a carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof panel as well as thermoplastic front wings, aluminum doors and bonnet and compound boot lid.
     The carbon fibre and other light materials are used in places like the bumpers and roof that are far from the center of gravity and/or high up, so that they not only reduce the overall weight but improve the handling by reducing the moment of inertia and lowering the center of mass height.''

    I'm not a fan of the BMW M6... Never was, never will be. I think it looks like a fu#cking whale on wheels. But knowing how much cool stuff this car packs under the hood and all those gadgets in the interior...
     Add a cool hot rod-ish body and hell yeah...does a child likes CANDY ?!!!

   A very funny comment was posted on the original link of this story ... :

''I wouldn't be suprised if that Bmw was stolen.''

    Hahahaha...internet humour ! I hope...
