202mph BMW M3

Zwickenpflug Beemer gains extra power and plush interior

It may not look particularly wild, but this tuned BMW M3 by Zwickenpflug is pretty special. Power is upped 25bhp via a series of tweaks, and while a hike to 439bhp may not sound overly dramatic, the result is a 202mph top speed.

Not that the car bothers shouting about it - exterior changes amount to a snazzy new set of 19in BBS alloys. Inside the difference is more marked, albeit not in the performance direction you'd expect. The whole of the interior has been decked out in a variety of lovely materials, including upgraded leather, swathes of suede around the key touch points and the headlining, and some aluminium pedals.

Look closely at the seats, dash and grab handles and note the BMW M-division tri-colours in contrasting stitching, about the only hint inside the car that you are behind the wheel of one of the quickest Bavarian's available. No clues to prices (or UK availability) yet, but it's safe to say there'll be a chunky premium over the standard 4.2-litre V8 coupe's £50,830.
