Would you believe that this BMW M3 (F80) is one of the most expensive BMW models you can get? This is because it comes with a lot of new features and is quite far from being standard. To be more specific, this Speed Yellow M3 is the closest you could get to a M3 GTS. It has carbon fiber details from the hood and the prominent front spoiler that the M4 GTS has.
This BMW M3 gets a Speed Yellow paint job, with a black roof to give it some contrast. This particular model also gets an upgraded exhaust system and titanium tips in the beefy carbon fiber diffuser, that has been acquired from the M Performance. It has been given enhanced aerodynamics like the optional carbon fiber fixed wing to add some downforce at the rear axle, keeping the car low. To finish off the extra bits are the M4 GTS wheels, Carbon Ceramic brakes, carbon fiber side mirror caps, and of course, the “M Performance” badge on the side sills.
Moving into the cabin, the interior complements the exterior with the black leather seats accented with yellow stitching and yellow trim for a sportier look all over. There are also a lot of glossy carbon fiber parts like the dashboard and the center console. Before I forget to mention, it also gets a sports steering wheel and sports seats.
Under the hood is a 3-liter straight six twin-turbo engine that gives out 444 horsepower (from the original of 425 horsepower). This enables the M3 to sprint from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in 4 seconds flat, thanks to the Competition Package.
The company is currently developing an all-new 3 Series, and according to rumours, there is a potential for a hot CS version to be introduced next year. Bimmer Post says that the sedan will have a M4 CS variant with 460 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It gets even more power than the M3 Competition Package, and will have a more aggressive exterior design. It will also be given a diet and some hardware fixes to make it perform even better. Now, all we can do now is to wait and see whether the rumours are true. But like we said earlier, the Speed Yellow is the best thing you could get from BMW today.
We don’t know yet how expensive this car would cost will all the upgrades it got. But it won’t be cheap, considering that the carbon ceramic brakes alone are priced at $8,150. Incidentally, this BMW M3 Speed Yellow was first spotted in Abu Dhabi.
