Preview: 2013 Bmw 3-Series Sedan (F30) by Vorsteiner

Article by Christian A., on June 5, 2013

Vorsteiner released the first details and photos of their upcoming tuning program developed for the Bmw 3-Series Sedan (F30). As you can see from the photos, the car comes with a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, a carbon fiber trunk lip spoiler and a new rear air diffuser with integrated exhaust system made from the same carbon fiber.

The design is completed by the 19- or 20-inch Flow Forged alloy wheels. There are no details regarding engine tweaks but we do admit that the 3.0-liter six-in-line engine found on the 335i can be the perfect choice, as it has to be powerful enough to sustain the design.

For those who don’t know, the 3.0-liter engine delivers 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft) at just 1,200 rpm, enough to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds and to a top speed electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h.

Of course, the engine can be improved and the car will be even quicker, but we will let the guys at Vorsteiner to show us everything.

BMW’s 3-Series Sedan is the first in its segment and has, over the years, come to symbolize the dynamics, the sporting capability, and the aesthetic appeal of BMW. The new BMW 3-Series is now the sixth model generation of the best-selling compact sports sedan in the world and it showcases an athletic character, thanks to its graceful and dynamic lines.

Even if the new mid-size model has grown in all dimensions from that of its predecessor, it has kept a perfect balance of elegance and sportiness. Just like in previous generations, the dynamic proportions of the sedan are defined by its short front overhand, sweeping bonnet, long wheelbase, and a typically BMW set-back greenhouse.

The new 3-Series has a wedge-shaped silhouette and a wider track – with an additional 37 millimeters at the front and 47 millimeters at the rear – that emphasizes the new BMW’s sporty look. This athletic face is further enhanced by the multi-faceted surfaces on the car’s front end. Moreover, the new 3-Series’ stance is highlighted by the upright and slightly forward-leaning kidney grille’s wide and squat interpretation.

New BMW also has LED accent lights that look like eyebrows on top of the twin headlights featuring corona rings, giving the classic BMW focused appearance an additional intensity. These headlights extend up to the kidney grille’s frame and then merge into a single stylish unit and add more focus to the model’s broad-set stance.

Additionally, the BMW 3-Series has replaced the previous model’s central air intake with two larger intakes that are set under the headlights and up to the outer edges of the car’s front end, adding more depth to its sportiness. You can also find small vertical intakes on the far left and on the far right of the main ducts, therefore helping create an “Air Curtain.” The Air Curtain is a new technology that was designed to improve the flow of air around the front wheels, increase aerodynamic efficiency, and reduce the consumption of fuel at higher speeds.
