HGK BMW F22 Eurofighter drifting – 820 hp.
Riga based Latvian tuner HGK Motorsport has put together one of the most impressive builds we’ve seen in a while – the designation F22 doesn’t belong only to the Raptor – it’s also what Munich calls the 2 Series coupe, upon which the M2 is based. This number has been tuned by HGK Motorsport.
HGK Motorsport is already well known for building BMW race cars. Its relationship with the E46 chassis is well documented. Thanks to Kristaps’ rapid success with HGK CrocoFD in Formula D, it became very popular. This is HGK’s first time tuning a BMW 2 Series F22 chassis.
This BMW was completely transformed for drifting by the Latvian racing tuner. He stripped it down to its bare chassis and rebuild it from the ground up.
It packs a General Motors LS V8 crate motor tuned by Mast Motorsports to 820 hp and it’s mated to a Samsonas five-speed sequential transmission and Winters differential. These are just some of the modifications applied to the engine – it’s got a Callies Magnum crank, Billet rods, Total Seal Advanced Profiling steel rings, Diamond Racing pistons, titanium intake valves, retainers and valve locks.
This BMW also features a revamped chassis, a full roll-cage, front and rear crash bars, custom fully adjustable suspension, Wilwood brakes and a 40-liter fuel cell and all that is enveloped in custom Kevlar carbon-fiber bodywork that makes it look like any military aircraft.
It’s been built to Formula Drift specifications and the first thing that strikes you about the Kevlar-clad exterior is just how menacing and aggressive this F22 Eurofighter body kit looks like. The F22 has just been delivered to MK Racing in Qatar – but you can check it out in this heart-pumping video courtesy of Robyworks.
