BMW M5 M Performance Parts and M3 30 Years American Edition at SEMA 2017
The Las Vegas BMW booth hosts an M Performance aerodynamic refinement kit for the new M5 and the special series dedicated to the 30-year-old BMW M3 in the United States.
From the news in the MY 2018 key that has brought in a wide range of hi-tech news, image evolution, developed to offer a further appeal to the aesthetics of BMW's renewed "flagship performance" and at the same time, to offer fans a higher level of aerodynamic refinement and deployment development. Here is, in summary, the BMW M5 identity card, which in these hours comes to the SEMA 2017 equipped with an M Performance.
The name "M Performance" is a classic amongst enthusiasts of high-performance Bavarian production: for the sixth generation of the BMW Series 5 (which we had observed in the high-end model - performance-driven and high-performance roadside technology) in the last few weeks, at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show), a kit for amplification of the M5's new range is being prepared to renew the BMW medium-high performance family, which began in 1984 with the historic M5 of the E28e range, and then continued with the E34 - E34S and E34 / 5S (1988 - 1998), E39S (1998 - 2005), E60 / E61 (2005 - 2011) and F10M (2011)
In detail, with regard to the car body elements, the M Performance kit developed by the BMW Division "M" technicians, which will be available in March 2018 on the market on demand, includes a range of fiber components carbon: front spoiler, side "minisets", rear spoiler and lower diffuser, as well as stainless steel side grilles and carbon slots.
Motorization remains unchanged: the 4.4 V8 unit, which thanks to a generous upgrade (new turbochargers, new intercoolers, and increased injection pressure), allows the new M5 F90 600 HP (40 hp more than the previous series) to a ranging from 5,600 to 6,700 rpm, and 750 Nm of maximum torque ranging from 1,800 to 5,600 rpm (meaning the remarkable driving elasticity promised by the updated 4.4 V8 M TwinPower Turbo). Adding to this is the adoption of a new electronic oil pump, able to maintain lubrication at an optimum level even at high speeds and more tortuous paths.
To optimize the road holding on the basis of the remarkable "cavalry", the M Performance kit developed for the new M5 F90 offers amateurs a set of adjustable suspensions (springs and shock absorbers) instead of "Variable Damper Control" technology Equip the serial model; the braking system, on the other hand, is made with the use of carboceramic materials.
The new "M Performance" package also includes an ad hoc exhaust system with titanium terminals and carbon fiber finishes, which will be sold exclusively in the United States and Canada. It is also worth mentioning the presence of an "M Performance Drive" module for recording and evaluating vehicle dynamics data: a telemetry system "inherited" by BMW in motorsport, which can be viewed on your smartphone.
The second new BMW show at SEMA 2017 is represented by the special M3 30 Years American Edition series, which is a great show at Las Vegas show along with the M5 MotoGP Safety Car. The M3 30 Years American Edition celebrates the thirty years since the arrival of the legendary M3 in the USA through a specific design created by BMW Group Designworks in collaboration with the BMW Individual program. The special M3 series will be available on the overseas market in the coming days.
The festoon features a metallic Frozen Red II car body, differentiated diameter wheels (19 "in front, 20" rear) and golden finish, the roof decorated with the characteristic BMW M graphic motif, carbon fiber accents "a view "(rearview mirrors shells, side skirts, rear spoiler and exhaust terminals).
