BBM Motorsport located in Senden, Germany unveiled their newest project and it involves three turbos, diesel torque, and wagon styling. The team started with a BMW E91 330d and removed the 3.0 L M57TU2D30 inline-six diesel and automatic transmission.

In place of the factory engine the team installed a 3.0 L N57D30S1 inline-six diesel from a 2013-current BMW M50d. This engine comes from the factory with three BorgWarner turbochargers, two small ones and one larger one. It works by allowing a small turbo to handle low rpm, the larger one comes on at 1,500 rpm and the other small one comes on at 2,700 rpm and compounds air into the larger turbo. The system has a maximum boost pressure of around 50 psi.

The previous engine produced around 228 horsepower and 396 lb-ft of torque. The swapped engine produces 381 horsepower and 740 Nm of torque from the factory but thanks to an upgraded tune from BBM Motorsport it now produces 440 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.

Besides the engine the wagon was also upgraded with an eight-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission, front and rear axles along with a LSD rear end from a E92 M3. BBM Motorsport reports the wagon can reach 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) in 4.9 sec, 100-200 kph (62-124 mph) in 9.8 sec, and reach a top speed of 296 kph (183 mph).
