Turning a street legal vehicle into a track ready behemoth takes some hard work. You need to adhere to performance, safety and visual aspects of the build, ensuring all three are equally achieved.

This is why companies like European Auto Source are highly regarded and respected in the tuning scene as they provide the expertise and proven track record.

Lately, it has become quite popular turning the E92 M3 into a track-ready vehicle.

This Alpine White BMW M3 started off as a normal M3, boosting a nice punch with 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8300 rpm, with peak torque of 295 lb•ft (400 N•m) at 3900 rpm. No slouch by any standard!

For this project, most of the aftermarket work was related to weight shedding. The addition of an Akrapovic GT4 full titanium exhaust system with carbon fiber tips provides a slight boost in performance and some amazing acoustics, as well as shedding some weight.

The weight of the vehicle was additionally lowered and performance improved, thanks to a set of VOLK TE37SL wheels.

With a complete JRZ RS Pro coilover system the car now sits lower and provides better driving performance as well.
