Brusturi, Romania - Z Performance specialises in state of the art drop-forged and flow-forged aftermarket alloy rims for a wide variety of European and Japanese performance cars. And once in a while, with help from the top names in the industry, they build (if you’ll forgive the pun) a calling card on wheels…

Like this lowered, wide-bodied, custom finished BMW M2 - one of the most radical we’ve yet seen.

Built to showcase the maker’s new ZP-Forged 6 Super Deep Concave rims with multi-spoke centres, it wears an asymmetrical set of ET-15 10.5 x 20 inch fronts and ET-11 12.5 x 20 inch rears, finished in brushed black with polished beds, shod with 265/30 front and 325/30 rear Toyo Proxes sports tyres, and hunkers down on a set of Lowtec HiLow coilover shocks.

That’s only possible thanks to an eight piece glass-fibre wide body kit from Zacoe Performance, set off by a front splitter lip, side skirts, three-piece diffuser, and a big rear spoiler - all in clear-lacquered carbon-fibre, also from Zacoe.

Apart from a 300-cell HJS catalytic converter and a Remus cat-back exhaust system, the show car is mechanically standard; it hasn’t even been custom sprayed - it’s finished with a full CFC wrap in a colour called pastel pistachio.

The cabin has been upgraded with aftermarket components from BMW’s M Performance catalogue, including an M steering wheel trimmed in alcantara and carbon-fibre with an integrated race display and a number of carbon-fibre trim elements.

Note that none of the custom components were specially made for this car; everything you see here is available off the shelf. So, with a little help from your local trim shop, you could build yourself an M2 just as radical as this one - just pick a better colour, please.
