When it comes about the BMW M3 , we’ve seen all kind of tuning packages: simple exterior modifications or engine updates, we’ve seen them all. So, you’ll ask then why bother talking about a new one. The answer is quite simple: because the body kit offered by Prior Design is simply amazing. And also because we really love the white exterior.
The exterior kit includes: front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts and bigger flared wheel arches, a new rear spoiler and a roof spoiler. And if you take a closer look you will notice that the engine hood has also been replaced by a new one. There is also a new set of bigger wheels.
No changes were made under the hood. The stainless steel exhaust system you’re seeing at the car’s rear has been put there just for aesthetic considerations.
This body kit can be mounted on both coupe and convertible versions.
Updated 11/15/2011: Prior design has unveiled today the official details and high res images on their brand new wide body kit for the BMW M3. Hit the jump to read more about it.
Once again, the designers at Prior Design have raised the bar: With the new BMW M3 lookalike body kit for the current three-series coupe model, the tuners from Kamp-Lintfort have produced an absolute masterpiece. Following the ‘tame’ version, which appeared in August of this year, comes the widebody version, which suits all E92 models with the exception of the real M3, and thus transforms every coupe into a genuine M3 clone.
Virtually an M3 GT2!
The widebody version is, of course, a completely new development. The body kit comprises a new front bumper with large air intakes, and a completely new bonnet with numerous air vents similar to those on the BMW M3 GT2 from long-course motor racing. A set of side skirts make the car appear lower, while the rear receives a completely new bumper and diffuser. The width of the body kit is most striking at the mudguards. The front mudguards were built completely new, while the mudguards at the rear axle were widened by a few centimetres on each side.
The new body kit also contains a spoiler on the boot lid, as well as on the roof, which are both also available in carbon fibre. It should also be noted that the rear bumper suits the M3 exhaust system as well as all other tailpipe versions, except for the 335i. Prior Design is also offering a specially designed stainless steel exhaust system in the style of the M3 that suits the new widebody body kit, which can be purchased from EUR 1,499.00. In terms of the lowering, the tuners from Kamp-Lintfort have relied on the quality of a KW coil-over kit, which allows the individual adjustment of tension and pressure.
As usual, the components of the new M3 body kit are manufactured from Duraflex, a very flexible and extremely stable material. And, of course, there is a valid TÜV component conformity certificate for every component, for smooth registration.
