Renowned BMW tuner, G-Power has released a tuning programme for the BMW M3. Although due to be replaced next year, the current M3 will be the last of the naturally-aspirated go fast BMWs, with the new car going down the force induction path.
Unlike other tuning programmes, the engineers at G-Power actually increased the original 4.0-litre displacement of the V8 engine to 4.6-litre by installing a new crankshaft and pistons from Mahle.
On top of that, modifications were also made to the exhaust and the air intake, while a SK III ASA T1-723 supercharger rounds up the mechanical upgrades. As a result, the ‘new’ 4.6-litre V8 churns out no less than 537kW (720HP), and propels the M3 from 0-100km/h in a supercar like 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 330km/h (205.5mph).
To put the monstrous power to good use, G-Power has also fitted the M3 with a Clubsport adjustable suspension and installed 20-inch Silverstone Diamond wheels shot in Michelin tyres. The boot lid and bonnet are made of carbon-fibre to further reduce weight, while a front bumper lip spoiler improves downforce.
