Across the lawn from the Sykes racer was one of the most talked about show cars at the event – the matte grey E92 M3 of Martino Auto Concepts. While most people love the look and finish of our new Trophy Kit brakes, the guys at Martino decided they needed a bit more attention on this particular stunning but stealthy sports coupe. The calipers were painted a lime green that matched the vinyls and a few underhood pieces on this otherwise monotone Bimmer and could be seen from half a mile away. Now that’s an attention getter we can get behind.
Of course, our own booth featured a pair of E92 M3s that were pretty eye-catching themselves. The red one had an Active Autowerke supercharger that drew a lot of attention, and the other looked like it had just rolled off the Turner Motorsports trailer. Done up in the special order Dakar Yellow, with unpainted carbon fiber roof, mirrors, spoiler and splitter and black kidney grilles and wheels, it was probably the best looking stock BMW at the show.
We’ll have more highlights for you on Facebook (and here) over the next few days, including a great photo gallery. If you haven’t “Liked” us already, please do.
