Uuuh ... pointless imho.
The V10 is a great 'Autobahn' engine but not really suited for anything else.
The original 1M is ok'ish on highways, but great fun at any other road type.
My 2 cents

Would be worth it though just for the sound of that v10 screaming past you.

"Hey look! We put a V10 in a 1M! Here's some pictures of a 1M with stickers saying V10 on the side!"

The car in the vid is a rebuilt 2008 1er coupe by the same company, anyway:

S85 is a beautiful piece of engineering, but in 90% of situations an N54 would feel stronger. You have to reach way up top in the rev range to get good power from the NA V10, for far less money they could have just gone with a 6466 single that would walk on a S85 powered car, and still have a much better power curve for real-life driving. It is a very cool experiment though, and that’s probably all this car was meant to be.

Good luck finding an insurance company on that one.
