Supercharged BMW M3 Duo from Active Autowerke and MAC

The E92 M3 is the only M vehicle that has stayed true to the division’s naturally aspirated legacy, with all the other extreme bimmers having become followers of the turbocharging religion. However, two US tuners have decided to create a special pair of M3s, brining another kind of forced induction to the game (we must thank BMW Blog for the scoop).

The first M3 comes dressed in a Verde Ithaca coat, which makes it shout about its performance to everybody. What performance? It’s simple, the mean looks and the 420 hp of the stock car are now a thing of the past. Don't worry, we mean this in a good way, as the vehicle has been heavily modified, with the aftermarket touches targeting multiple of its areas, which means that the "go" matches the "show". OK, we'll stop teasing you and get to the point.

Here are just a few of its upgrades:
  • Stoptech Trophy Big Brake Kit (Painted Verde Ithaca by MAC)
  • Active Autowerke Stage 2 Supercharger Kit (Custom Verde Ithaca Plenum by MAC)
  • Active Autowerke Signature X Pipe (race)
  • Active Autowerke Signature Exhaust (Black Edition)
  • Active Autowerke S1 Short Shifter Kit
  • Vorsteiner GTS3 Front Bumper w/ Carbon Kevlar Front Splitters
  • Vorsteiner GTS3 Vented Race Hood (Double Sided) w/ Carbon Kevlar Vents
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Kevlar Rear Diffuser
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Kevlar Boot Lid (Double Sided)
  • Recaro Profi XL Seats
  • KW Clubsport Coilovers
  • ADV1 5.0 Trackspec Wheels 20×9.5 Fr, 20×11 Rear w/ Titanium Lugnuts w/ etched Logos
  • Nitto Invo Tires
  • BMW Performance Steering Wheel Flat Bottom (type 2, no lights)
  • BMW Performance Shift Knob
  • BMW Performance Hand Brake
  • STRI Gauges

As for the second creation this uses a more subtle finish, but this doesn’t manage to hide the beast that lurks inside. So. let’s get to the details (there are plenty, so we’ll skip the exterior & interior mods and stick to the tech ones).

  • Active Autowerke E9X M3 Stage II Supercharger kit
  • Active Autowerke Methanol/Water Injection kit
  • Active Autowerke Full Signature Exhaust system with custom tips
  • Active Autowerke custom tune
  • Active Autowerke S1 short shift kit with knob
  • KW V3 Coilover suspension system
  • StopTech Trophy Big Brake Kit, custom finished in Verde Ithaca
