BMW introduces the M3 CRT

P90079403 BMW is set to release yet another special edition M3, this time with a unique name and unique features. The BMW M3 CRT (short for Carbon Racing Technology) uses carbon fiber elements to shave some pounds off the M3 as well as stylize the new sedan. The 4.4 liter 450HP M3 will be 154lb lighter than its stock counterpart pushing the vehicle to 62 MPH in 4.4 seconds flat. The M3 CRT will use carbon fiber trimmings from the BMW i3 and i8 plant and repurpose those for use in a CFRP mat which is Carbon fiber layers wrapped around a “honeycomb” structure providing immense strength with low weight gain.  

 This CFRP process is used on various aspects of the vehicle including the seats, Hood, front splitter and rear spoiler. The Special edition M3 will be hard to come by as it is limited in production to only 67 units and will retail at $185,000.
