Video: Karolina Pilarczyk’s “Silvette” Carries the Torch for Her M3

We’ve been going domestic-crazy lately, to the point to we’ve been overlooking LS-swapped vehicles from across the pond. Covering F-bodies, Corvettes, CTS-Vs, and 5th-Gen Camaros have been keeping us busy. We even have an article on one 800 horsepower LS4 Monte Carlo SS coming your way soon.

But back to the story at hand. When we got a message on our Facebook page about Karolina Pilarczyk’s drift car, we thought we were suffering from a serious case of deja vu.

You see, we discussed her LS3-powered BMW M3 a couple of months back, so when her boyfriend and crew chief, Mariusz Dziurleja, sent us a new YouTube video we thought it was something we’ve already seen before.

When it turned out to be otherwise, we were both pleasantly surprised and a little bewildered. As it turns out, Karolina wanted to step up her game for the 2013 season, and dropping the 650 horse LS3 into a much lighter, and more nimble S14 Nissan 240/Silvia chassis was just the ticket for her.

Although their busy schedule keeps us from getting all of the nitty gritty details on this car, it’s clearly evident that 650 HP in a car that undoubtedly weighs less than 3,000 pounds will make the job of whipping its rear around the corners fairly easy.

While her native country isn’t particularly known for incubating pro talent in the drifting world, Karolina carries the torch, seemingly single-handedly, for the Polish and for women in the sport. We’ll continue to monitor her career from across the pond, and hope to see her in the States soon!
