2017 BMW M3 (F80) in Abu Dhabi wears a San Marino Blue exterior

Article by Christian A., on May 23, 2017

Did it ever cross your mind that a BMW M3 (F80) would look extra sexy with carbon fiber details here and there? Well, you’re not the only one who thinks that, and this particular San Marino Blue example will make you drool.

The M3, currently located at BMW’s Abu Dhabi dealership, is wearing an M Performance body kit, including a carbon fiber boot lid spoiler, mirror covers, and a front spoiler, with carbon fiber details on the gear selector, center console and a handbrake lever, and of course, the M Performance steering wheel.

The four-door sedan definitely has the DNA of a high performance sports car with sporty lines. It comes standard with the high-gloss black double-bar kidney grille with the M3 badge, and a set of large air inlets complemented by all-LED headlights with dynamic design. This design guarantees a confident presence during the day, while it perfectly illuminates the road at night.

To match the San Marino Blue exterior paint, BMW gave the M3 a set of dual-tone silver and blue wheel. But what will really impress you is what is in the cabin - that is a combination of red and black leather interior, making the already stylish ride look sportier than ever. The interior of the M3 will remind you of the Tanzanite Blue M3’s interior, looking almost identical.

An Akrapovic exhaust system and a metal pedal set had also been added to the M3, paired with its current 3.0-liter M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine, producing 450 horsepower and 550 Newton-metres of torque. The bi-turbo ensures that the engine responds to the slightest touch of the accelerator with thrust and traction. The M3 can come in either a manual six-speed M transmission or a seven-speed double clutch transmission.

Keep in mind that there is even an optional M Competition Package that can further enhance the BMW M3. This package offers a sports exhaust system with black, chrome plated twin tailpipes, creating a powerful engine sound. Along with the package is a set of exclusive 20 inch M light alloy wheels Star-Spoke style 666 M with mixed tyres and sports seats.

BMW Abu Dhabi has long been into the practice of customizing their cars to their full potential indeed. They also love the colour Twilight Purple as well. Just a few months ago, they unveiled the M3 in the same hue, as well as a 7 series, and an i8. So if you want to see this beauty in person, then you can head over to the Abu Dhabi dealership while it’s still there.
