Launched! BMW M3 GTS

m3 gts

WOW!

That was my first impression when I laid my eyes on this orange beauty. Videos have been circulating the internet lately of the M3 GTS (official name) with rumors spreading faster than a California wildfire. “Is it the new CSL”? “Is it called the GT4”?

Well it’s now confirmed. This new machine is said to be approx. 420 pounds lighter than a regular M3. How did they pull it off? The interior has been completely stripped. No rear seats. No radio or navigation system. No electrical seats, just racing buckets. No air conditioning. Just a hardcore track machine. It even comes with a fire extinguisher and an emergency cut-off switch for those hairy track moments. BMW’s M madmen felt that it could still stand to lose a few so they opted to install a Macrolon rear window instead of the stock glass piece.

Speculation is that power has increased to 450 horsepower from a larger 4.4 liter engine (stock is 420 hp and 4.0 liters). What has been confirmed is that the car will only be available with the 7-speed dual clutch system. No manual gearbox for this bad boy. The exterior also sees a few aerodynamic mods which should help it blaze around the track like the front lip and rear spoiler. Other track duty additions are competition alloy rims, beefed up brakes and an adjustable suspension set up.

Pricing should be somewhere north of the $180,000 range. Maybe one day…
