Robert Downey, Jr.'s Speedkore 1974 BMW 3.0 CS Coupe

Wisconsin-based Speedkore is best known for its carbon fiber parts and wild custom builds, but this recent project is quite a departure from their American muscle cars. Built for Robert Downey, Jr., this 1974 BMW 3.0 CS is a steel-bodied European hot rod with a hint of carbon fiber. Extensive body repairs were done by Speedkore. The front air dam, rocker moldings, and rear bumper are custom carbon fiber pieces, with eye-catching hydro-dipped woodgrain trim and rear spoiler. The interior sports the same woodgrain as the exterior trim, on the Nardi steering wheel and inserts along with a reformed dash to fit a new Classic Instruments gauge cluster. It wouldn't be a true Speedkore project without an engine swap, and in place of the original carburated inline-six is a 3.6-liter six from an E34 M5 making 311 horsepower. Hopefully this isn't the last time Speedkore adds its signature touch to a European car.
