This modified copy of the legendary Bavarian BMW 3.0 CS coupe from 1974 belongs to the famous actor Robert Downey Jr. The car, which was tuned by SpeedKore, has been completely rebuilt and received many interesting features.

For starters, the atelier’s specialists carry out extensive restoration of the steel car body. The brick red exterior paint is matched to the original BMW grille and window frames in Titanium Gray Cerakote, as well as a set of three-piece forged HRE wheels in Bronze. Bilstein shocks and a set of six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo brakes can be seen.

There are some surprising exterior touches, including the original body waistline molding in a hydrotreated wood grain and a rear spoiler using the same technology.

Mr. Downey has asked for some interior changes. The wood gray tint is present on the steering wheel and dashboard and matches the coffee-colored leather upholstery perfectly.

Despite the fact that the interior of the Bavarian car looks relatively standard, it actually has a number of features, in particular, there is a Classic Instruments dashboard and a hidden touchscreen of the infotainment system. The rear seat is gone, replaced by a padded luggage deck, and the boot houses an integrated Yeti cooler with leather lining.

While the original 1974 car came with a 3.0-liter M30 inline-six with carburetor, a modified version of the legendary Bavarian coupe got the S38 engine (originally used in the E34 generation M5). In this car, the 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine develops 311 hp, significantly more than the original CS with 180 hp. Complete with a powerful motor, a four-speed ZF automatic transmission works.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the “charged” BMW M3 Touring was first brought to the road. A division of the German brand BMW M on Instagram on Wednesday, August 26, distributed a video in which the “charged” M3 Touring station wagon was first noticed on the road.
