BMW E30 with i3 electric motor

DaveG is a self-described BMW nut and restorer. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he’s building the World’s first BMW E30 with an electric motor from a BMW i3. The motor makes 168-184 horsepower depending on the year. Dave plans on powering the motor with Fluence battery packs and connecting it to a 320d transmission via a custom adapter plate.
