BMW designed the M3 CRT to showcase the manufacturer’s new carbon fiber technology. The M3 CRT wears a CF hood that is as strong as conventional steel but with a quarter of the weight. The same methods were applied to the vehicle’s seats. The old exhaust has been scrapped for a titanium unit, and lightweight Y-spoke wheels and brake calipers are part of the recipe as well. In an effort to trim fat wherever possible, the M3 CRT even wears less sound deadening than the standard model. BMW also reworked the vehicle’s suspension with a more rigid subframe and adjustable coilovers. The CRT packs a punch with it’s 450 horsepower version of the company’s naturally-aspirated 4.4-liter V8.
