Naturally, adorning the high-performance model like the M4 with it only makes it even more appealing.

The project started off as a plain-old BMW M3 – if you can call an M3 that. The vehicle is powered by a 3.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine delivering 425 horsepower and maximum of 550 Nm torque.
