Turner Motorsports knows a thing or two about building race cars so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us that they were able to turn a BMW M3 into a yellow-and-blue racer all in a span of two minutes.

Wait…two minutes? That doesn’t sound right, does it?

Not unless you take into account the magic that is time-lapse video. This video, which was taken a few weeks leading up to the Rolex 24 earlier this month, shows the engineers and crew of Turner Motorsports masterfully turn this M3 E92 into a race-ready machine, complete with all the standard regulation parts as well as the colorful yellow and blue livery.

The whole time-lapse video was produced courtesy of Turner Motorsports’ media partner, Veloz Media, and shows in great detail, albeit a pretty fast one, all the intricacies into building a world-class race car.

If you’re the type that seems to rush through everyday seemingly all the time, then this video is perfect for you. Two minutes is all it takes from start to finish, and you’ll probably even have time to watch it a couple more times after that.

Well, that one’s definitely an interesting video. I am really surprised that they are able to work that fast and efficient, considering all the delicate work needed.

Test drove a low mileage one that had been traded in at a Ford dealership and the salesman had no idea what it was. For years I have thought of that car, the one that got away. To me the 3 series have gotten so soft and BIG. I kinda like the one series now, about the size of the E30s.
