Where does a BMW feel like the fish in the water? Obviously, on the track. But not on any track. It loves to slide along the curves, while smoking anyone around. But what about a BMW on a drag race? This car shows us that anything’s possible!
An not only it participates, but its result is absolutely surprising: they say it’s the only F80 BMW M3 equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, that can cover the ¼ mile in just 10.86 seconds. It manages to accelerate so fast, that, at the end of the circuit, it reaches 129 mph (208 km/h).
The car was fast from the beginning, producing 431 hp and 550 Nm from its V6, 3 liter turbocharged engine. In standard configuration, the M3 reaches 62 mph in just 4.3 seconds. But that’s not our case. Our case is a proper monster, upgraded by Jordan from RK-Tunes and flash tuned with a BMS JB4. It also received a new pair of turbos from Xona Rotor Green Turbochargers.
There’s not much to talk about the result. It’s enough to watch the clip, to understand that there’s no if or maybe in the sentence containing the elements M3, ¼ mile and under 11 seconds. Will it be a further development in the future? No one can tell, especially knowing that the clutch is pretty stressed. But the fact that pushing the car with such a force while having only one clutch, therefore counting the lost times between the gear changes, it’s a nice accomplishment and it deserves our applause!
