While going through our archives of unpublished articles we came across this project. Australian builder Queen Steet built a Mazda four-rotor powered BMW 3-series. The engine and GT60 turbocharger was good for 1,664 horsepower and 1158 lb-ft of torque on the dyno. It was claimed this car cost $1,000,000 when you added in the cost of the gold plating. The best quarter-mile was 7.2 seconds at 196 mph at the time of the source articles publishing.
