Next up in our continuing coverage of the 2010 Paris Autoshow is a beautiful example of the BMW M3 equipped with M Performance parts and painted in Frozen Black Matte. This car looks unbelievable in person.
This car is equipped with M Performance parts including the M Performance sports silencer that adds distinctive sound in a 40% lighter body with improved temperature-resistent chromium-nickel titanium build.

Turner Motorsports is one of the lucky owners of 1 of only 30 Frozen Gray M3 limited edition models. Never ones to leave stock alone however, they have already begun their conversion of the car into an even more trackable car.
For now, exclusive sized 18×10″ Volk Racing G2 Forged wheels have been fitted all around on this M3.
