German tuning specialist Hamann announced its new, two-stage engine upgrade program and an elegant body kit for the 2008 E92 BMW M3 coupe.

The first level of upgrade gives your M3 additional 20hp and 25 Nm (18 lb-ft) of torque raising the 4.0-liter V8 engine’s power output to more appealing 434hp and 425 Nm (313 lb-ft) of torque. The vehicle’s top speed thus increased from electronically limited 259 km/h (161 mph) to 300 km/h (186 mph).

Called Sportkit HM/M, the Level 2 upgrade program further increases the engine’s might to 449hp and 448 Nm (325 lb-ft), raising the top speed to 320 km/h (198 mph). The kit consists of a remapped ECU and new stainless steel exhaust system.

The elegant body kit for the E92 BMW M3 starts from mere €2400 and includes new front spoiler, rear skirt, a pair of side skirts and a roof spoiler.

Although even the car with its original body work looks sporty enough to blow your head off, I must admit that the new aero kit from the German super tuner makes the car look even more appealing and even, to a certain degree, intimidating thanks to its stealth-style matte black color. I also extremely like the multi-spoke rims that pay homage to the original alloy wheels of the classic 1987 BMW M3 E30.
