BMW has unveiled the limited edition 2016 435i ZHP Coupe.
Designed to pay tribute to the original ZHP package on the 2003-2006 E46 3-Series, the special edition features a mix of factory options as well as components from BMW M Performance Accessories.
Starting with the exterior, the model has an M Performance aerodynamics package that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and a rear diffuser. The model also has a blacked out grille, M Performance badging and an Alpine White or Black Sapphire Metallic paint job.
The car has also been equipped with a stainless-steel sports exhaust system and a Track Handling Package that includes an Adaptive M Suspension, a Variable Sport Steering system, M Sport Brakes and 18-inch Orbit Grey V-Spoke wheels.
Under the hood, the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine has been outfitted with an M Performance Kit that adds a new air intake and an optimized ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the engine produces 335 bhp (249 kW) and up to 332 lb-ft (449 Nm) of torque - an increase of 35 bhp (26 kW) and up to 32 lb-ft (43 lb-ft) of torque. The extra oomph enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph 0.2 seconds faster than the standard 435i Coupe.
Speaking of performance, the car has also been equipped with the M Sport package and an M Performance Limited Slip Differential.
Production will be limited to 100 units and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
