There's also unique red piping around the grille. Along the side, you'll discover special alloy wheel designs, while around the back there's a huge carbon diffuser. The roofing is likewise made from carbon, naturally …
Step inside and the carbon style continues. You get carbon container seats as standard, along with a smattering of carbon throughout the centre console and dash. You also get an Alcantara-covered steering wheel, red stitching throughout the cabin and BMW's brand new infotainment system.
Under the bonnet, you'll discover the exact same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six as in the standard car. Nevertheless, BMW has reworked the ECU, and as an outcome, the power output has actually increased from 510hp to 550hp. Torque remains the same, at 650Nm, and power is still sent to all 4 wheels by means of an 8-speed automated torque converter gearbox.
