Racing is a luxury that many BMW enthusiasts enjoy. The E92 M3 is no doubt a capable track car in its stock form, however the owner of this one wanted to be able to push his car even more. Equipped with an ESS Supercharger, this M3 can power out of any corner. To further decrease lap times, this M3 needed to get some more grip. TE37 wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 R tires, Takata Racing Seats and Harnesses, and Pedal Haus Aluminum Pedals were the go to options for shedding some weight, increasing grip and safety, as well as adding to the black on orange color scheme. Immediately noticeable, the aerodynamic package by CRZY Engineering and APR Performance adds both function and aggressive styling to this M3. For increased safety, this M3 has also been equipped with roll cage.
For the owner, not being able to race 24/7 is a slight disappointment however, still being a street legal car, street driveability was crucial. The M Performance Steering Wheel wrapped in alcantara once again aides in increased hand grip and control on the track, but also provides the driver with the comfort and control of any other BMW steering wheel.
Chances are that if you read this blog on a daily basis, then it's pretty safe to assume you're a hardcore BMW enthusiast. If you're a hardcore BMW enthusiast, then you have definitely fantasized about moving to Germany, building a super badass M3 race car and then regularly thrashing it on the Nurburgring. In reality, most of our BMWs will remain street legal, and the closest many of us will ever get to driving on the Nurburgring is through an Xbox. However, one of our customers in Germany is fortunate enough to live out this remarkable fantasy.
This E92 M3 has been built to be the ultimate Nurburgring track car. While we're not entirely sure about every detail that has gone into its construction, we do know that it features a fully stripped and caged interior, an Akrapovic exhaust system, a GT4 lip, a GTS spoiler, two Recaro seats, Schroth 6-points harnesses, an OMP steering wheel, KW 3-Way Adjustable coilovers, solid subframe bushings, a 4:10 differential, StopTech brakes, a CAE shifter, a Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake, Macht Schnell Pulleys, M24 carbon fiber doors, Stack gauges and square Apex EC-7 wheels wrapped in 265/35 Michelin Cup tires. Watch this M3 in action in the video below; it takes a properly built car along with finely honed driving skills to record an amazing 7:27 lap around the Ring. Enjoy.
We currently have the pleasure of working on this very cool build. Our go to driver, Jordan Yost and his team at Yost Autosport, is building this Silverstone II E92 M3 into a proper race car. From YostAutosport.com:
This car is being built to comply with and/or be easily modified for three different sanctioning bodies; NARRA USGT Enduro, N.A.S.A. Pro Racing Western Endurance Racing Championship, and Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Championship GS. As of right now Yost Autosport plans on campaigning this car in both NARRA USGT Enduro and N.A.S.A. Pro Racing Western Endurance Racing Championship races in 2014. While endurance racing will be our main focus you will likely see this car at other events as well such as Global Time Attack, EuroTuner GP, and MFest in 2014.
Check out these photos of how the car is coming along.
