Read inside for a very interesting interview regarding the revised EDC (electronic dampening control) suspension in the new M3 ZCP Competition Package. Some new info is provided by Philipp Wänninger, responsible at BMW M for chassis tests at the axles, steering, suspension, and damping systems and a crucial contributor to the tuning of the new Competition Package for the BMW M3.
BMW has just released this great video of the M3 GTS being put through hotlaps on the Nurburgring, with M division test driver Günter Schilling at the helm.
Check out this rare delivery of two M3 ZCP Competition models. The two lucky owners beat the closing of the European air space and took delivery together in Munich. They are currently stuck due to the ash cloud, but we can think of much worse things than being stuck with a pair of M3 competition models in Europe!
M3post member Parke33 is the first lucky recipient on the forum of an M3 ZCP competition package, a space gray E90 M3 sedan! Congrats to him and to all our soon-to-be M3 ZCP owners.
Still photos are great, but nothing gives a better impression than walking around a car and seeing it in person. We’ve brought this to your desktop with a video walk-around of the M3 ZCP Competition package model now at the Geneva Motor Show. Enjoy.
The M3 ZCP Competition model has been spotted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show! This Monte Carlo M3 ZCP looks stunning in the dark room with dramatic overhead lighting, room soundtrack, and wall graphics.
Here are the first official photos of the 2011 BMW M3 Competition ZCP Model! Inside is also info from BMW regarding the BMW M product range for this upcoming Spring. Enjoy!
Larry Koch, M Brand Manager of BMWNA, finally shares the reasons why the M3 GTS will not be available in North America (namely, high cost of preparing the GTS to be US-compliant). Also discussed is the just announced M3 competition package (which will be coming to NA).
Here’s official details of the 2011 M3 Competition (ZCP) Package for the US: the Competition Package will cost $2,500 and further enhances the highly responsive chassis by installing 19″ wheels with greater offset for a wider track, and a 10mm lower suspension. Combined with Electronic Damping Control and Dynamic Stability Control, both remapped for better corning, this makes the M3 Coupe or Sedan with this package about the best handling production M car ever built. There are also matte color options available – details inside.
Some more 2011 M3 Competition Package (ZCP) information has come to light. Though the ZCP package will include special ZCP competition wheels, the tires will be regular 19″ M3 wheels. Also coming to light is good news for fans of matte color finish: there will likely be multiple matte colors options for the ZCP M3.
