There are countless amounts of BMW M3 tunes out there by countless amounts of tuning houses. We’ve seen the good, we’ve seen the bad and we’ve seen the gaudy, but it’s never too late to get your hands on an M3 and make it even more Bimmer-esque.
ADV.1 Wheels did just that. Mostly known for their role in simple and beautiful wheel setups for the high-end sports car, ADV.1 has done numerous projects in the past including the standard Aston Martin, Ferrari and Bentley tuning favorites, just to name a few. Their latest project coming in the form of the BMW M3 “El Diablo.”
Taking the standard 2012 BMW M3, ADV.1 Wheels threw the beautiful matte red Bimmer on some ADV.5 minimalist wheels and gave it a nickname suitable for a bad guy movie character; “El Diablo.” The contrasting matte red paint job with a painted black roof, wheels, side mirrors and tinted head and taillights. The standard BMW M3 has truly been turned into hell on wheels.
“Don’t fix it if it ‘aint broke,” is the philosophy ADV.1 used when contemplating fiddling around with the engine. The standard M3 comes with 414-hp from a 4.0L V8 and a six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels. To 60 mph the M3 coupe is good for 4.4 seconds.
All in all “El Diablo” is one of the more beautiful (and less gaudy) M3 tunes we’ve seen out there. The minimalist wheel looks adds a sense of stance without taking away from the standard beauty that is the M3. This red devil is hell on wheels.
