Not sure on the rear carbon add-on though, looks a bit too much like an afterthought.

Haha that's what I thought too..but it's a promotional video. Otherwise, it'd be hard-pressed to believe that the E9x m3 can overtake that caliber of cars(unless the drivers were really crap).

I believe the car is supercharged by ESS.

I believe it's called "the ultimate aerodynamic experience".... Kinda hints that they are trying to improve aerodynamics with the kit. Not to mention that it's beating every car around the track with no mention of mechanical performance upgrades.

Yes, but when you watch the video it's obvious that it was set up for the Arkym car to pass.

yeah, I think the car looks nice.

About it's on track performance? Well, it's a promotional video. It's definitely a fast car, but like I said, I'm sure that at the speeds they were going, it was all about driver.
