Today, we’re taking our tuning series into the past with a supercharged BMW E46 M3 and some stunning photography. Thanks to VF Engineering and their supercharger kit, gorgeous HRE 501 wheels and 1013MM Photography, this BMW E46 M3 comes fully to life! What a beauty!
As you may know, the E46 M3 is powered by a S54 naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 3.2 liter that produces 343 PS (252 kW; 338 hp). Now, add a supercharger and that number grows significantly. When you opt out for a VF Engineering supercharger kit, you can select power increase up from 420 all the way to 480 and 570 horsepower. It’s just a matter of what parts are involved, how much changes to the internal components are needed and naturally, the price you are willing to go with to make your car even more powerful in the process. As tuning goes, that sweet flat-six sound remains – with an added supercharger howl, a perfect combination of more power and well known attributes.
Final touches on this build are HRE 501 wheels, finished in gold which suit the Interlagos Blue BMW M3 quite nicely. Lowering and great stance arising from it are a natural step towards a clean and good looking M3 altogether.
