What you are looking at here is the Quen St. BMW Drag Car, an M3 based dragster powered by a four rotor engine coming from Mazda with a total output of 1664 Hp. And in case you were wondering, every naked metal piece in this car is 23 carat gold-plated. More surprisingly, this car isn't only meant for show. After spending the rest of its first year making a national tour of car shows, the Queen St. Racing Team is planning to race with this beast with the ambition of making it break its predecessor's record of 7.2 seconds @ 315 Km/h (196 mph)..

.. I really do not wish to see this happening to it:
