Experiment: the owner of a BMW M3 decided to test the maximum speed without a limiter 1




According to official data, the maximum speed of the BMW M3 (G80) with an electronic speed limiter is 250 km/h, but with the optional M Driver’s package, the car can be accelerated up to 290 km/h.

At the same time, a video recently appeared on the AutoTonNL YouTube channel about a seriously modified copy of the model, which does not have an electronic “collar”. Using the example of this car, bloggers checked to what speed it is really possible to accelerate a Bavarian four-door.

Note that the tuning was subjected to a regular BMW M3 (not a Competition option), equipped with six-speed mechanics. In the process, the “charged” sedan received revised software settings and a number of improvements to the technical plan.

In particular, the car was equipped with a new cat-back exhaust system, other downpipes, and carbon intake. This made it possible to increase the engine output from the original 473 hp and 550 Nm to 650 forces and 800 Nm of torque.

During the tuning process, the four-door also lost its speed limiter. During tests on one of the German autobahns, bloggers managed to accelerate the car much higher than the values stated by the manufacturer.

Specifically, they managed to “remove” the speed from the speedometer at the level of 317 km/h, although a special GPS device showed “only” 312 km/h. And bloggers also noted that such a car accelerates much better from 100 to 200 km/h: it took them only 7.2 seconds to take this bar.
