Martino Auto Concepts in Glen Cove, New York, started out by specializing in repairing accident vehicles and are only one of eight facilities in North America to feature a Celette fixture bench and a Carbench Octopus. This allows Martino Auto Concepts (MAC for short) to become a factory approved BMW repair facility while having the capabilities of reconstructing some of the world's finest exotics including Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches. So naturally with all their talent and expertise, they decided to branch off to customizing high-end vehicles, and MAC Auto Couture was born in 2008.
To show off what their customizing division can do, MAC Auto Couture teamed up with BMW tuner Active Autowerke to build two completely killer BMW M3s with their own themes and personalities. Both feature Active Autowerke's Stage II supercharger kits and custom paint jobs by MAC Auto Couture. From there, the rest of their accessories contrast one another to show off two complementary builds.
On the one side is a Matte Reventon-colored BMW M3 with a race-inspired theme, featuring an AE Performance roll cage and Stoptech's Trophy big brake kit. Both of those components have been painted a flashy Ithaca Verde (the actual color of the other M3) which contrast the matte, dark exterior of the car. For aesthetics, Vorsteiner came into play with a GTS3 front bumper with carbon kevlar front splitters, a vented race hood with double sided carbon kevlar vents, a carbon kevlar rear diffuser and a carbon kevlar boot lid. Suspension comes from KW's Clubsport coilovers while this M3 sports a 20-inch staggered set of ADV1 5.0 Trackspec wheels. STRI gauges along with Recaro's Profi XL seats round off the race-styled look.
