2014 BMW M3 F80 was put on some various tests at the Nürburgring. The new M3 is going to have a six-cylinder petrol engine with several turbochargers, probably three.
The engine will also get a heavily modified cylinder head and a strengthened aluminum block in order to maintain the power, which will be around 450HP. It will be mated to a standard manual gearbox or to an optional DCT (double-clutch transmission), which is faster than the manual variant. (more…)
AC Schnitzer boosted the Diesel range significantly: 318d and 320d to achieve 171 HP (126 kW) and 218 HP (160 kW). The performance upgrades for the 328i and 335i will realise 294 HP (216 kW) and 360 HP (265 kW) but both are still in the final development stage. One thing is for sure: with the AC Schnitzer performance upgrades the 3 series will have an even more impressive presence.
The saloon makes itself heard with the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer with one or two chromed “Racing” tailpipes. A pure optical enhancement is given by the AC Schnitzer “Racing” tailpipe (more…)
For nearly three decades, the name of Manhart Racing has been inseparably connected with the subject of motor tuning. Spectacular technology transplantations such as the V10-motor transplant from the M5 into the BMW Z4 or the Biturbo-V8 drive from the X6 M into the BMW M3 have essentially characterised the performance scene. Manhart Racing has recently changed its management and relocated its office rooms from Geilenkirchen to Wuppertal. The company’s genes, however, have not changed. At Manhart Racing, the focus is always on performance! (more…)
The E92 comes as the successor of the still under the aegis of the controversial Chris Bangle designed BMW E46. The talk is about the 3 Series Coupe, produced from September 2006 till March 2012, so definitely more modern. 257.000 copies of the in Munich, Regensburg, Leipzig, Rosslyn (South Africa) and Rayong (Thailand) made midsize cars were shipped to the final consumers.
The firm Tuning Concepts from the in Schleswig Holstein situated Neumunster has taken such a BMW E92 and modified it with some almost entirely visual changes. First, there is the two-tone paint in red and black, which makes the 3 Series Coupe almost “automatically” faster. It is perfectly suited with both the fenders and the door-mirrors in a M3-look. And a tuned E92 of course has to go with a sports break system, which also applies here. (more…)
