Sometimes you see a car and just think "wow". Other times you see a car, and you still just think "wow", but it's for a completely different reason. This is one of those times.
Turns out there's an E39 530i out there, roaming round the streets not even caring about the fact that its sleek German lines somehow managed to melt into the all-American back-end of a Corvette. Uh, OK.
Redditor u/the_utah_guy (username checks out, I guess) had the dubious honor of witnessing this automotive mashup in the steel, and was nice enough to take a picture so the rest of us could revel in its horrific glory.
There are just so many questions. It actually looks like it's incredibly well executed; this isn't a few mismatched pieces stitched together like the leftovers at Chuck E. Cheese. In fact, the "Corvette" part doesn't actually look quite like any real-world Corvette, so it's very possible it was all custom-made. It would explain why all the lines flow so smoothly.
But why? And by whom? Was this a cheap BMW with a wrecked back-end that a skilled amateur had a little fun with? Or did somebody have a shop do this to a pristine 3 Series because, you know, creative vision and all that? I want to know who I'm supposed to be asking these questions to.
Still, with so many people opting for ridiculous fake badges (like this Fiat Punto AMG), it's nice to see that whoever was responsible for this BMvette/Corvimmer/IDK didn't try to trick anybody about what was really hiding underneath. The 530i badge is still sitting pretty, just as it should be.
