Kurt Thiim E30 BMW M3 DTM Project Replicated from 1:18 Scale Model Car

Have you ever looked at the home office or work desk belonging to a true automotive enthusiast? Did you take notice to any model cars or die-cast models that resemble some of your favorite all-time sports/exotic cars? As I write this very post I notice that I am surrounded by upwards of 10 model cars on my desk and on the wall in my office. Sometimes I dream that I could do a real-life build of one of them especially my 1:18 scale 2001 E46 BMW M3 GTR model car. That would be a dream come true for me.

The only person that I know personally crazy enough to do such a thing actually pulled off a stunt like this from his very own 1:18 scale Kurt Thiim 1988 E30 BMW M3 Race Car. The guys at the Orlando, Florida area PSI (Precision Sport Industries) shop took countless hours in constructing a virtually identical build to one of the shop manager’s Kurt Thiim M3 1:18 scale model car. The attention to detail on this E30 BMW M3 is remarkable from the custom body work down to the vinyl wrap. It is safe to say that this vintage build is one-of-a-kind. Check out the latest images and mod list below.
