DS Automobile & Hamann Tweak The F80 M3 To The Tune Of 530 PS

The M3 is one of the world’s most popular sports sedans, so it’s not difficult to understand why tuners have a particular fondness for it.

For this particular build, Hamann fitted a custom front spoiler lip, a rear diffuser (with no fewer than 4 fins), lower sports suspension and 21″ multi-spoke Anniversary Evo wheels, while Swiss company DS Automobile put it all together and took care of the all-white paintjob.

Overall the bodywork mods on this M3 are somewhat subtle in relation to what the German tuner cooked up for the M4, which can also be fitted with an adjustable rear wing and a new hood.

Performance has also been improved with the help of a custom sports exhaust that, along with the ECU remapping, upped power from 431 PS (425 HP) to 530 PS (522 HP), resulting in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 4 seconds flat.

      This isn’t DS Automobiles by Peugeot-Citroèn. It’s a similarly named swiss tuner. I found out about it just now and I still can’t believe there hasn’t been any…legal issue with those names.
