German tuner Alpha-N reveals another carbon fiber aerodynamic package for BMW automobiles. This time, the E92 BMW 335i Coupe goes in for some carbon treatment.

The complete bodykit includes flared wheel arches, new front and rear bumpers, redesigned hood in the M3-style, trunk lid with integrated spoiler and a rear wing that helps with downforce.

To take advantage of the reduced weight for maximum performance increase, Alpha N tunes the inline six-cylinder engine with a larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooler, new pistons, new crank, a completely new exhaust system with centrally positioned tailpipes and a software update. All of these bring the total power output to 450 horsepower.

The increased power output requires an upgraded brake system with six-piston and 380 millimeter brake discs at the front and the standard 355 millimeter discs on the rear axle. Handling benefits from a KW coilover suspension and Hankook tires in sizes 255/35 ZR19 or 295/30 ZR19.

Inside, the gorgeous Recaro bucket seats and roll cage remind us that this is a pure racing machine. Other upgrades included a performance steering wheel with Alcantara upholstery.

Since all new bodywork components are made of carbon, the weight of the BT92 is reduced by a whopping 250 kg under a standard BMW 335i coupe. 1430 kg at 450 bhp.
