Cam Shaft does the Bmw M3 Guerilla

Article by Christian A., on June 26, 2012

As you may know already, the Bmw M3 E92 is a very popular car among tuners and the latest company to prove this is Cam Shaft. Located in the North Rhine-Westphalian town of Kempen, Car Shaft is known for its sublime car foiling, the company decided to use a mat space-gray metallic foiling by Bruxsafol named Platinum Wrapping Film.

For those interested, the price of the Bmw M3 foiling costs 1,785.00 Euro, VAT incl. Still, if you want more and want to cover the entries and the visible door edges of his sports car , you will need an extra 715.00 Euro incl. VAT. This means that the entire job will cost you 2.500,00 Euro in gross, including work & materials.

The M3 you see in the photos was also upgraded and received a new front apron created by Racing Dynamics, new Hamann side sills and a new exhaust system created by Akrapovič and featuring 100 cell cats.

A new set of 19-inch BBS-Le Mans wheels were added. In order to optimize the driving dynamics a new set of KW Variant 3 Inox-Line height adjustable coilovers were installed. Inside, the car features carbon parts and aluminum pedals installed created by Hartge.

BMW M3 has always been known as a special model within BMW M’s model range that lives up fully to its motorsport roots. In fact, the BMW M’s motorsport experience and expertise were first applied to the original BMW M3 that was introduced in 1986 and that followed two more model generations. And now this supremacy comes out once again most clearly in the 2007 version of the BMW M3.

While the newest generation of the BMW M3 was derived from the BMW 3-Series Coupé, its looks and technical elements are different from the model it was based from. This is because the BMW M3 features a sportier design and comes with drivetrain and suspension technology that were created to achieve a high level of performance.

Likewise, the BMW M3 is much lighter than its regular counterpart, simply thanks to the fact that BMW M engineers employed lightweight technology in its development. As a result of this intelligent lightweight engineering, the new BMW M3 boasts of an excellent power-to-weight ratio of only 3.8 kg/hp (8.4 lb/hp).

Interestingly, the new BMW M3 is the first production car in its segment to have a roof made from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which greatly contributes to its lightweight nature. Save for some parts and components, the new BMW M3 Coupe is entirely a new vehicle in terms of engineering and design concept.

Aside from the load-bearing structure of the car, only its two doors, windows, headlights and rear lights as well as the bootlid, were adopted from the regular 3 Series Coupé. As for the other body components, these were developed and produced just to be fitted in the new BMW M3.
