This Bimmer was built to pay homage to BMW's earlier days of racing.

Consisting of a standard E28 5 Series, the car was thoroughly reworked.

The paint design is reminiscent of David Hockney's BMW Art Car. Go ahead, look it up, I'll wait here.

Instead of featuring the human behind the car's panels, it shows off the various vehicle parts hiding in there.

The wheels are genuine Ronal Racing wheels done up in traditional BMW Motorsport style.

This thing just exudes old-school charm.

Centerlock wheels on an E28 5 Series? Sure, why not?

The door handles are red, because red paint makes a car faster. (Please don't think I'm serious here.)

Under the hood lies the beating heart of an E28 M5.

StanceWorks is the name of the company founded by the car's owner, Mike Burroughs.

Full disclosure: I know Mike. He's a nice guy.

Another popular Bimmer was this E46 M3 racecar.

Mmmmmm, fender vents.

Dat wing.

This E92 BMW 335i seems to be missing its hood. But that's so the fanboys can drool over the modified motor, natch.

Another fan favorite is the R35 Nissan GT-R, preferably slammed to the ground and wearing a giant body kit, usually made by Liberty Walk.

Oh, hey, look, another slammed, wide-body GT-R.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

And another! Only this time, it's orange!

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

That rear fitment is bonkers. The wheels have whole inches of space between the lip and the face.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This GT-R is unlike any other, because it's inside this booth, which lacks space for a second slammed, wide-body GT-R.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This one lacks a bolt-on wide-body kit, but it's still rubbing fenders nevertheless.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This one's red.

I got nothin' here, folks. All these GT-Rs are basically the same.

Let's turn our attention to something far more interesting -- the wide variety of Porsche 911s on the SEMA floor. This 930 is dirty. I like it.

An acquaintance of mine contributed to the build of this Rauh-Welt Begriff 911.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Wait a second -- I thought the 911s weren't going to be all the same.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This one's rocking a Rauh-Welt body kit, too.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Oh, oh crap, so is this one.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

The Martini livery is pretty slick, though.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Oh, come on!

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

OK, we're on to something different. This rally-style 911 is the business.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This one is tastefully mild, and best of all, there's not a RWB kit to be found.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This 911's rocking a custom twin-turbocharged setup.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Since there isn't exactly space for turbochargers in a rear-engine car, they hang out just ahead of the exhaust pipes.

OK, let's go back to BMW with this vintage E9 CSL racecar.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

This one comes from Bobby Rahal's garage, where BMW keeps it.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

I can't believe they let people touch this thing. It's priceless.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Hell, you could probably flip a few switches if you were feeling keen to.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

You can tell it's a 30-some-odd-year-old race car because it's not put together all that well.

I didn't know Redman was a race car driver. I just thought he was a rapper.

The No. 25 participated in this year's Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

Those fenders, my goodness.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

They're just so...boxy.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

One might even call these fenders foxy boxing. Or not, because that's probably a little sexist.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

The wing is nice, and totally not at all sexist.

Caption by / Photo by Andrew Krok/Roadshow

I'll just stop talking now.
