Wide body kit & FORGED 6 alloy wheel rims on a pastel BMW M2
The BMW M2 is still one of the absolute stars in the BMW M range. It may be the smallest model and the entry level to the world of fast top models coming out of Munich, yet it is anything but sparingly motorized or slow-moving. Even a mere glance at its appearance clearly demonstrates its aspirations and its status. That some more could be done in this respect is proven by the latest project car from Z-Performance.
One of the essential ingredients of the extensive conversion is, of course, a set of wheels from the rim specialists. There are 10.5×20” ET-15 and 12.5×20” ET11 ZP.FORGED 6 Super Deep Concave rolling under the fenders. Their forged, multi-spoke centers are finished in brushed black and combined with polished beds. The Toyo Proxes sport tires added by Toscar Gummi measures 265/30ZR20 and even 325/25ZR20 on the rear axle.
It was only possible to mount such wide wheel-and-tire combinations thanks to the eight-piece GRP wide body kit. This comes from Zacoe Performance, as does the front lip and the large rear spoiler, the side skirts and the three-piece diffuser, the mirror caps and the trailing edge on the rear – all made of visible carbon fiber. All in all, the added parts give an incomparably chunkier, sportier look to the BMW. Another highlight of this coupé is undoubtedly the conspicuous, pastel pistachio colored full CFC wrapping. Furthermore, the chassis lowered by means of the Lowtec HiLow coilover perfectly rounds off the spectacular look of the BMW.
Further innovations of a technical nature are a 300-cell HJS catalytic converter and the Cat-Back exhaust system from Remus. The interior meanwhile has had its appearance upgraded even more with components from the BMW M Performance program: it boasts a large number of carbon-fiber decorative elements, as well as a steering wheel provided with carbon fiber trims and covered in Alcantara, and also features an integrated race display. Along with Z- Performance and the other companies already mentioned, others involved in customizing the car were Dragon-import.ch, BMW M CH, Heidegger.li, GM- Aufkleber and CFD Switzerland.
