‘Back dating’ is in! This new trend consists in taking a vintage car and completely renovate it all the while incorporating every new improvement possible. But there’s a catch: not to lose the original spirit of the object! In the ‘Iron Man’ film franchise, which has skyrocketed Robert Downey Jr’s career, the actor plays a disillusioned billionaire who’s both a spoiled child and a righter of wrongs. Among his many toys is an impressive collection of race cars. So this wonderful BMW 3.0 CS is none other than the real life adaptation of his on-screen superhero hobbies. Initially equipped with 180 hp, the car – which is legendary for its 6-cylinder engine – has gone through many improvements that allows it to reach 311 hp. Its tomato red bodywork has remained faithful to the 70s but the carbon wheel arch extensions and bumper add a ‘bas ass’ sport element that doesn’t go unnoticed. Finally, there’s this unexpected touch of ‘nature’ with teak wrapping the car’s beltline, hood and spoiler. This is also found inside along with the seats’ mocha leather. If your a ‘back dating’ enthusiast, you’ll be happy to know this project has been completed by Speedkore, the Milwaukee engine tuner well-known for their vintage ‘muscle cars’.
