AKG Motorsport manufactures the highest-quality bushings, mounts, shifters and performance parts available for BMW. We’re experts in BMW who pioneered aftermarket performance bushings, mounts, shifters and more all the way back to the 2002 and E30. All of our race-proven parts are our original designs – not the other guy’s.
Our performance parts are engineered in-house and manufactured by us, or locally under our direct supervision. AKG parts are unequaled in their design & manufacturing, and crafted out of the highest-quality materials available – such as 6061 & 7075 T6 aluminum and our exclusive U.S. Military Spec polyurethane. In addition, we are the only aftermarket BMW parts manufacturer that molds our polyurethane in the USA under strict ISO 9001:2015 certified standards – and that’s a BIG deal. AKG performance parts for BMW are available through our online catalogue, or our dealers worldwide.
Where We Are
Our BMW performance parts are used on race cars, rally cars, drift cars and street/track cars in over 60 countries. From amateur to the professional level, race cars have competed for over 35 years with AKG performance parts. The reason? Our BMW performance parts are the highest quality, best performing and most reliable performance parts available.
How We Started
AKG Motorsport was founded in 1985. We’ve got over four decades of mechanical experience and have focused almost exclusively on the BMW marque for the past thirty-five years. During much of this time, we specialized in the construction of fast, reliable, race cars – consistently winning at both the regional and national level.
AKG incorporated old world craftsmanship and up-to-the-minute technology in the building of individualized race cars. We performed all aspects of construction: from chassis work to engine building – including custom engineering of bushings, mounts and suspension components – with very little labor contracted out. This resulted in cars known to be both competitive and reliable!
Our cars have numerous SCCA, MCSCC, ICSCC, and NASA wins, including trophies in a variety of enduros. Enduros are the ultimate test of a car’s quality and workmanship – and from 4 hour to 24 hour, our cars consistently excelled in the enduros they campaigned.
Off the track, we were on the forefront of engineering BMW engine swaps: from our early swaps of 3.5L engines into BMW 2002’s to later swaps such as a 5.0L V12 into an e36. For example, we were first to swap a 6-cylinder into a 2002, the first to swap an M50 into an E30, the first to swap an M60 into an E30, the first to swap a Euro 3.0/3.2 into a US E30/E36 and the first to swap a M70 V12 into an E36.
While BMW is AKG’s specialty, we have been involved with other marques as well, including Jaguar and Volkswagen. AKG was hired to construct the world’s first New Beetle race car in 1998. The project, from inception to raceday (including a custom Audi engine swap), was accomplished in just over a 30 days.
The Hippies New Beetle, owned by Australian entrepreneur Ross Palmer, campaigned its extraordinary debut at the 1998 24 Hours of Nurburgring. Formula One World Champion Sir Jack Brabham raced the Beetle later that year, after having driven an AKG built E30 in the 24 Hours of Moroso in 1996.
