Charged BMW M3 gets insane retro styling


The refreshed BMW M3 in the E30 body boasts a new engine and bodywork that pays homage to Allen Berg’s original 1991 DTM, which featured a Tic Tac body paint.

The S52B32 engine was originally produced for the American market BMW M3 E36. He could develop a power of more than 800 horsepower. This particular engine has new pistons and connecting rods. The powerplant is turbocharged and has, according to the tuner, “the largest intercooler you could find that could be fitted with a standard front frame.”

The engine management system allows you to switch between seven boost settings on the fly. The motor can run on ethanol and 91 octane.

As a transmission, the proposed five-speed manual transmission from the M3 in the back of the E36. The transmission is equipped with a new clutch, pressure plate and lightweight flywheel. There is a rear limited slip differential. The M3 received air suspension. The brake calipers and rotors have been borrowed from the BMW 3 Series E46.

The E30 M3 already has wider fenders than the stock 3 Series at the time. It has an LTO widebody kit that makes the car even wider. The owner alters the original Tic Tac livery, including removing the logo from the side of the car, making the gold stripe a more prominent part of the design.

The huge two-winged wing, tapered front splitter and rear diffuser are also not part of the original design of the M3 race car. The details match the rest of the competition-ready car’s exterior so they don’t feel out of place.
