The BMW M3 continues to show its dominance in the luxury performance market. Here, you are looking at the first confirmed US Delivery of a BMW F80 M3. The car is a Yas Marina Blue BMW M3 Sedan, matched with a black extended merino leather, and fully optioned out with Carbon Fiber interior trim, Executive package, Driver assistance package, Lighting Package, Harman Kardon surround sound and the new M-DCT transmission. And no, Carbon Ceramic brakes were not accidentally left out. The owner, Josh Shokri, founder of Speed District, a California-based Car Club that organizes monthly track days for European car enthusiasts, has become an idol in the car community for building some of the best looking track-oriented project cars and meticulously chooses which parts will enhance his vehicle’s performance.
This particular M3 project car has become a test bed for an array of different manufacturers, amongst them is Brembo. The car is equipped with the first ever Brembo Big Brake Kit on a 2015 BMW M3. The kit consists of 380mm front and rear slotted rotors with eye-catching 6-pot and 4-pot Brembo yellow calipers. The car is also running a beta tune bumping power to an astonishing 580hp and 625lb-tq to the crank.
To match the new performance upgrades, Josh opted for a set of MORR MonoForged™ VS52 Competition wheels in a 20×9.5” and 20×11” fitment. Our Competition Series is our lightest series weighing in as little as 20lbs for this application. The car is also temporarily equipped with a set of H&R Super Sport springs until a proper set of track-oriented coilover system becomes available.
