The 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon opened its doors this week to aftermarket companies looking to market their latest and greatest products.
The Tokyo Auto Salon is one of the top motor shows globally for modified and tuned cars, along with the SEMA Show and Europe’s Essen Motor Show in Germany. It is also Asia’s largest automotive festival featuring unique, wacky and flamboyant designs, but it also highlights some of the aftermarket offerings by traditional automakers, like BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz.
One company that attends the popular show every year is Tokyo-based 3D Design. This year, the popular Japanese tuner introduced to the public a unique M2 project. Painted in the beautiful, yet challenging to achieve Pure Metal Silver, the M2 is a stunning machine to look at.
BMW Individual Pure Metal Silver is the most expensive paint from BMW. The color was first shown on the BMW M5 Facelift. It looks amazing, has a chrome-like finish and extraordinary brilliance. According to Toru Endo at 3D Design, painting the M2 in Pure Metal Silver was a challenging and time consuming task, but the company is extremely pleased with the result.
The M2 also features an aero kit from 3D Design which includes a front lip spoiler made of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer that also comes with the front canards included. It’s a plug and play solution so it will fit the standard BMW M2 front bumper without needing any additional modifications. On the sides you can get a set of new side skirts made of the same material while round the back 3D Design is offering a new diffuser and a spoiler.
Another highlight of the M2 project is the Type III forged wheels can be had in 19- and 20-inch guises and in a variety of finishes.
