With a vehicle as powerful and dynamic as the BMW M3 Coupé, exceptional styling is merely a by-product. Form will always be driven by functional considerations. The expressive front is designed to accommodate the V8 high-rev engine. The muscular rear allows for the wider track and four tailpipes. Even the shape of the exterior mirrors adds to the overall aerodynamics. Only the interplay of all these measures ensures the desired effect: sports car performance that is ideally suited to everyday driving.
The aerodynamics of the BMW M3 Coupé.
The optimized aerodynamics in the BMW M3 Coupé ensures that downforce is both cooled and increased at the same time. The left opening near the powerdome channels additional air to the intake air plenum. The M rear apron with diffuser ensures controlled airflow along the car’s underbody and the M front air dam with integrated air inlets cools the engine. The result: additional downforce for additional thrills.
