We are pleased to present this 2011 BMW E90 M3 CRT finished in Frozen Polar Silver Metallic over a Black Novillo and Sakhir Orange leather interior. The E90 CRT (Carbon Racing Technology) was a special edition released by BMW using lightweight carbon fiber sourced from BMWs new production facility built for the i3 and i8 models. The CRT uses carbon fiber for the seats, hood, and aerodynamics while offering a 36 HP increase over the standard E90 M3 in addition to factory adjustable KW coilovers and a titanium exhaust system. One of only 67 examples produced for the European market, this CRT is said to have spent time in Italy before being imported to the U.S. under the Show and Display exemption and subsequently federalized by JK Technologies of Baltimore, Maryland in August of 2021. Now showing just over 700 miles on the odometer, this extremely rare and highly collectible M3 CRT is being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.
The E90 CRT was offered in Individual Frozen Polar Silver Metallic (W73) paint with Melbourne Red (A75) accents on the hood air intakes, side vents, front lip, and rear spoiler. Other equipment includes matte black kidney grilles, black brake calipers, a model-specific carbon fiber front splitter and decklid wing, and matte black 19” forged Style 359 wheels currently dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The interior is accented by Titan Shadow trim and features carbon-fiber bucket seats in Black Novillo leather with Sakhir Orange inserts and contrast stitching. The Alcantara-wrapped multi-function steering wheel fronts European-market instrumentation displaying speed in KM/H. Standard amenities include rear Park Distance Control sensors, BMW Individual High-End audio system, automatic climate control, BMW iDrive with navigation, automatic adaptive bi-xenon headlights with washers, and cruise control.
The M3 CRT is powered by the same S65 V8 as the E92 M3 GTS, rated at 450 HP and 325 lb.-ft of torque using a larger displacement, lightweight crankcase, and an optimized wet sump oil system. The rear wheels are driven through a 7-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. The CRT also received factory stainless steel brake lines, adjustable KW coilovers, reinforced subframes, and a titanium exhaust system. The seller notes the replacement of fluids was completed in November 2020.
This sale will include NHTSA paperwork, some sales literature, and the CRT specialized tool kit.
