Name a better combination than Black Sapphire Metallic and a BMW M3, we dare you. Sure, there are many color combinations that are a fitting attire for the high-performance sedan from the Munich-based company, but the attraction of a pure black exterior, some carbon fiber bits, and finally, a set of aftermarket wheels will never be topped. And even though the exterior look of the BMW G80 M3 is still a hotly debated subject, some aftermarket upgrades make this a menacing-looking car, even though not on the same level as its predecessor, the BMW F80 M3.

The BMW G80 M3 might sport a shiny new identity, but it still offers a significant level of track-inspired technology and fun, borrowed from the M4 GT3 customer sports racing model. The vehicle is still a purebred high-performance machine, capable of impressive performance and great handling. The two-door coupe is prepared by the BMW ///M division, giving the vehicle a high-revving 3.0 liter M TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder petrol engine that develops a peak output of 503 hp and 479 lb-ft (637Nm) of torque.

With the standard BMW G80 M3, the power is sent exclusively to the rear-axle wheels by means of a six-speed manual transmission. Purists will love the manual transmission that comes as standard on the BMW M3, keeping the legacy of old BMW M3s alive and kicking.

In turn, it’s no wonder that a lot of would-be customers are choosing the six-speed manual version, as it provides a great deal more fun for the more experienced driver. And if you take away all the qualms about the exterior looks of the new-generation BMW M3, this is still one of the best high-performance sedans out on sale.

As a result, this generation of BMW is still a perfect foundation for a great aftermarket build that only needs a few subtle visual touches to make it one of the best performance cars out there. This particular Black Sapphire Metallic BMW G80 M3 build comes from Vossen Wheels. It’s equipped with a set of lightweight Vossen LC3-01 wheels.

And as you’ll see in from the excellent photoshoot by William Stern Photography, these wheels come with an intricate contemporary design that gives homage to old school racing wheels. Featuring a neat ring near the wheel’s outer end, it provides both improved brake cooling and an interesting design touch.

These wheels are CNC machined in Miami to exact specifications for every vehicle application, ensuring the best fitment of this BMW M3. For this build, the wheels come sized 20×9.5 in the front and 20×10.5 in the rear. For the finish, the customer went with a Brushed Dark Smoke finish with the contrasting red Vossen centercap logo. A perfectly fitting & clean color combination.

The additional aftermarket aero touches come in the form of a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and a rear carbon fiber decklid spoiler, perfectly complementing the blacked-out exterior of this vehicle.
