There's no denying that the new BMW E92 M3 is a superlative automobile, but that doesn't mean experienced tuning houses like HAMANN can't work their magic and make the best even more best. HAMANN has just introduced its tuning package for the new E92 M3 Coupe and Convertible, which includes two stages of performance tune, upgrades for the suspension and brakes and aerodynamic tweaks. The first stage of tuning bumps power from the car's 4.0L V8 by 20 horsepower and 18 pound-feet of torque, while the second stage called the Sportkit HM/M 35 juices the motor by up to 35 hp and 35 pound-feet of torque. The M3 is then lowered by up to 40 mm on a new adjustable coil-over suspension and an upgraded brake system with larger rotors and front six- and rear four-piston calipers are added. The forged, black-laquered rims shown on the vehicle above are called EDITION RACE and weigh less than the stock wheels, though HAMANN offers many aftermarket wheels from which to choose. Finally, the new M3 is set off with a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear apron and roof spoiler that all work together to actually reduce lift as well as look pretty. The interior, of course, has also been spruced up with aluminum and leather. At the end of the day, HAMANN has made an M3 that's better than it was before, so apparently there is some wiggle room to make the best even more better. (NOTE: grammer mistakes intended)
