The Bavarian hot rod boasts signature design cues meant to enhance the speedster’s muscular stance. Naturally, Sapphire Black metallic is the only paint color, while the 19-inch, Y-spoke forged aluminum wheels are finished in matte black.

Carbon fiber trim is another important feature, so look for the carbon mirrors and rear diffuser, with blacked-out trim on the grille and side panels.
