here was really only one problem with the V10-powered E60 BMW M5. The issue? A heavy sedan powered by a low torque, high-revving engine that required full throttle and 8-10ths driving to be any real fun.

Pair that engine with a light weight race car (a Subaru Impreza for instance), however, and you've got quite a package. That's exactly what one original thinker did, with plenty of custom fabrication work that can be seen in a full build gallery here.

Video of the car's first shakedown runs have just hit the net and while the car is reportedly not making full power, it certainly sounds incredible!

Watch the video after the jump:
