This Lada 2107 (Lada Riva) was built by a creative owner in Gdańsk, Poland for autocross and drifting. He considered several different engines from Fiat to Nissan but settled on a 3.0 L M60B30 V8 from a BMW E32. The engine produces 215 horsepower and 214 lb-ft (290 Nm) of torque. That doesn’t sound like a lot in the world were 1,000 hp engines seem common but it’s enough for a vehicle that weighs around 2,200 lbs. Behind the engine sits a ZF S5D320Z five-speed manual transmission that came out of the same BMW E32. Under the body sits a BMW suspension with KW Competition coilovers. The front is taken from an E36 and the rear is from an E39.
