German tuner Leib Engineering wants to get noticed and it sure did so in a huge way with a scintillating program for the BMW M3 .
Comprised of a full-on body kit to go with an impressive performance upgrade, this M3 is ready to be a beast on the road and do so while looking extremely stunning. In order to accomplish this look, engineers over at Leib dressed up the M3 in an Alpine White finish that’s complemented by a high-grade carbon-fiber body kit that includes carbon flaps under the front spoiler, carbon side-view mirrors, and a carbon tear-off edge.
Inside, Leib made good use of fine Alcantara in touching up the car’s cabin. The material itself can be found all over the interior, including in the BMW Performance seats and the steering wheel.
Under the hood of the M3 lies an engine that’s been extensively modified to give the sports coupe some serious fury. Leib worked on the engine-control software to achieve its desired results, which was to give the M3 improved performance numbers to the tune of 470 horsepower, a significant improvement from the standard M3’s 420-horsepower output.
Aiding in the realization of such an eye-popping upgrade is the installation of a new high-grade steel in-house valve exhaust system that features a 100-cell HJS catalyzer, an X-pipe with middle silencers and an end muffler with vacuum-controlled Pierburg valves.
Having that kind of impressive upgrade isn’t enough without giving the M3 the kind of braking power deserving of a car with 470 ponies on tap. So, Leib went ahead and installed a Brembo GT braking system, with red six-piston fixed saddles on the front axle. The improved braking capabilities should provide the M3 enough stopping power that, in turn, can be handled by the set of 19-inch BMW M220 forged-alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup semi-slick tires.
