The guys from Carrozzeria Motorsport sure want to make themselves famous amongst the BMW enthusiasts out there and are working overtime to do so. Their efforts haven’t been in vain though, some of the most beautiful Bimmers we’ve seen so far coming going through their capable hands, like the E92 M3 we showed you a while back.
The latest project they finished involved a convertible BMW E93 M3 and a roll-cage. That’s right, a roll-cage on a drop-top. Whilst it might seem peculiar at first, it actually makes the most sense.

On a regular coupe you might have the hard roof over your head to protect you in case you flip over but when the same roof actually folds in the boot, you’re definitely more exposed and the cage suddenly seems like a better idea.

But I digress. The guys from Carrozzeria did brilliant work on this E93, creating a custom roll cage that will protect the passengers in case of a bad accident. After the made it from scratch, they also painted it in a brilliant red color that matches the new Recaro sport driver’s seat and harnesses (a rather unusual choice to go with only one Recaro seat in the whole car).

After all that came a new Performance Steering Wheel, CSL trunk from Duke Dynamics, AutoTechnik matte black fender grills, BMW Performance Carbon splitters, custom painted gloss black wheels and a Macht Schnell tow strap.

Of course, carbon fibre went all around, inside the cabin, on the rear bumper and even on the steering, wheel, all in the hopes that it will make the Bimmer lighter. As for the exhaust, it comes from Meisterschaft and uses titanium tips plus an aero shield.

In stock guise, this beauty would churn out 420 HP and 400 Nm of torque out of the S65 4-liter naturally aspirated V8 under the bonnet and send them to the rear axle through a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Naturally, the M3 would do 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.3 seconds but since it was surely tuned to make more power, we can’t really say just how fast this particular model is. All we know is it’s got a roll-cage.
