Boxerworks' K.O.

Built by the talented team from Boxerworks. This BMW is a nod to Breitling’s Aero L-39 Albatros jets. This is evident through the colour scheme throughout this piece. Also, this may just be me, but the boxer engine bulging out of the frame seems to resemble muscular wings. We also particularly appreciate clean and creative wiring, The R75 looks neat with everything tucked away out of sight. 

For full details, have a look below. A huge range of upgrades and customs parts on this one.
