SEMA this year has had some interesting vehicles and modifications on display. I’m being nice saying interesting, because there’ve been plenty of laughable displays from various automakers. Fortunately, BMW seems to get what enthusiasts want, showing off several new products you’ll be able to get at your local dealership.
A couple of world premieres happened at SEMA. BMW unveiled motorsport aerodynamics for the M3. The rear wing, support brackets and side sections are all made of carbon fiber. Racing stripes are part of the package as well.
The M Performance Wheel made a big splash. Each one is milled from a forged blank, providing superior balance and in turn handling. An adjustable coilover suspension for the M3 and M4 was also shown off, among other parts.
Several Bimmers are also part of the show. Among them is a 340i painted Alpine White, an M3, the M2 Safety Car, and an X5. They all were wearing M Performance Parts, showing how you can customize your everyday ride or weekend toy.
One of the shining stars for SEMA is a BMW Individual 740e xDrive iPerformance. The car’s painted with BMW Individual Frozen Black Metallic. Like other Bimmers at the show, it’s wearing various M Performance Parts.
Another rare treat for the show is a 3.0 CSL, which is one of five in existence. The car competed in the 1975 and 1976 IMSA Camel GT Series in Group 4, getting the checkered flag at Laguna Seca, Sebring, Talladega, Daytona and Riverside.
