Some people just don’t know what to do with their time and money anymore. That wouldn’t generally be a problem but when you take one of the classiest and most beautiful BMWs ever made (the E39 5 Series) and you turn it into something not even Frankenstein would be able to call its own, someone must step in.
It’s the case of this BMW E39 540i that was transformed by an overenthusiastic owner into something that Freddie Krueger might drive in your worst nightmare. Not only did he fix up the 5er with parts from a 7 Series and 6 Series but he chose the worst possible models for it: the E65 7er and the E63 6er. You might remember them because they were done under Chris Bangle’s supervision.

That’s right, as far as we can tell, this car has the headlights from an E65 7 Series, a sort of Hamann body kit for the same car and the taillights from an E63 6 Series Coupe. Not only that but the body received some god-awful wheels as well alongside some ‘tuning’ that would make even the most hardcore Need for Speed Underground gamer feel envious.

Just like in that old game, the boot ‘decorated’ with some huge JL speakers and 4 Kicker amplifiers. Inside the car, the horrors continue. Speakers went everywhere and, the coup-de-jour, the front passenger airbag was replaced with a Playstation. Because, who needs an airbag anyway, right? In case of a collision, just bite hard into a CD and you’ll be fine!

The car is now up for sale on eBay and the good news is that it seems to have a rather unused engine with only 39,000 miles (62,800 km) on it for its age. It’s also a manual so if there’s a good soul out there that would invest some TLC in it, he could get himself an E39 540i for a decent price.
