For those that want more than just a standard M3, BMW has plenty of optional goodies to further customize the high-performance sedan. This particular car is a fine example as it comes with a special Individual color known as Tanzanite Blue metallic which makes it stand out even further. You will also notice the front air inlets have a carbon fiber finish while the front lip wears the same hue as the rest of the body. A similar color has also been applied onto the calipers part of the M Performance braking kit.
The list of tweaks doesn’t end here as the BMW M3 Sedan also benefits from a rear diffuser made from carbon fiber to further lower the car’s weight. It doesn’t have the standard exhaust system as it has been replaced the Akrapovic EVO exhaust with four tips featuring a carbon fiber finish. Perhaps the most striking feature of the car is the fixed rear wing mounted on the trunk lid spoiler. It’s also made from carbon fiber and comes from aftermarket specialist AC Schnitzer.
The interior cabin has also been further customized as the owner decided to apply a Sakhir Orange theme which nicely contrasts the Tanzanite Blue exterior. This striking hue can be seen not only on the seat upholstery, but also on the door panels, center armrest and on the dashboard as well where you will also notice the carbon fiber applications.
There aren’t any mechanical upgrades, so the M3 has the same six-cylinder 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine with 431 bhp and 550 Nm of torque. This car has the optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox which means that it runs the 0-100 kmph sprint in 4.1 seconds. If it had the standard six-speed manual transmission, the sprint would have taken an additional 0.2 seconds. Regardless of gearbox choice, BMW electronically limits the M3 to a top speed of 250 kmph, but an optional M Driver’s package lifts the limiter to 280 kmph.
