On the sides are the protagonists extended skirts and in the rear could not miss a prominent fixed spoiler. The presence of widened wheel arches allowed the creators to integrate into them a set of huge BC Forged North America rims. They have dimensions of 19 × 11 on the front axle and 19 × 12 on the rear.
They are paved with Toyo R888R tires. To further enhance the car’s presence on the road, we found an air suspension system. An upgraded Brembo brake kit has also been installed. And if on a technical level you find it striking, the exterior vinyl with the colors of BMW M I won’t even tell you …
