The German tuning firm ATT has just come up with a new customization program for the high performance BMW 3 Series called the Thunderstorm M3. ATT’s upgrades to the domesticated race car includes a few go fast parts under the hood as well as a new set of shoes that take the modified M3 to a higher level of both performance and style.

The latest BMW M3 comes from the factory with a high revving 4.0 Liter V8 that produces 414 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque, ATT starts off their tuner transformation by boosting the lump with a supercharger and obligatory ECU upgrade to an even 500 HP. Out back spent gasses exit the vehicle via a new quad tip exhaust complete with variable valves that can adjust the M3’s tone for a few pennies more. Hiding behind a set of staggered 20 inch ATT Le Mans wheels wrapped with a set of sticky Michelin Pilot Sport is a fully adjustable KW coil over suspension setup to ensure that the M3 remains planted when running deep into the apex. However the most impressive feature coming from ATT’s arsenal is their interior package that is available with everything from carbon fiber to Swarovski crystals.

Press release after the jump.

A shocking modification that it’s optional on the interiors to include Swarovski crystals that as we all know the price of a single crystal was worth a lot. Holl crap! ATT is really into this matter but I think if you have a lot of money on your pocket, maybe you can afford the tweaking fee.
