Emotion Wheels has released some details and pictures featuring a modified BMW M3 Coupe. It uses a tuned version of the company 4.4-litre twin turbo V8.
The tuning bug seems to have bitten Emotion Wheels quite deeply. Best known for its work on wheels, the company has now and again branched out into the world of total package tuning. See this Q5 story for recent evidence.
Latest to receive the Emotion treatment is the BMW M3 (E92). Under normal circumstances this coupe is to be found with a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 309 kW (414 bhp / 420 PS). Out with that, said Emotion, and in with the 4.4-litre twin turbo V8. In the X5 M and X6 M this engine is good for a sweet 408 kW (547 bhp / 555 PS).
After some engine tweaking and the installation of a modified sport exhaust system, Emotion was able to release 527 kW (707 bhp / 717 PS) from this beast. To handle the extra power load, adjustments were made to the chassis and suspension.
No performance figures were released but since the normal M3 dispatches 0 - 62mph in 4.8 seconds, this modified version should be significantly quicker. Styling changes include a carbon fibre bonnet, new side sills and 19-inch Wasabi matte black alloys.
Prices should be available soon.
