Show Notes

Bimmerworld’s ‘Bergsteiger’ was built for Pikes Peak, and at The SEMA Show’s Optima Batteries booth, chassis guru Wayne runs us through some of the thought that goes into a dedicated Hill Climb build. After selecting the Roush built 1150HP Weistec Garrett GTX3076 turbocharged V8 P63 engine (the S63’s motorsport variant) and doubling the output from a GT3 BMW M6 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship build it was quickly apparent that a tube frame chassis would be required to the accommodate the size of the engine.
