Video: BMW M3 GTS On Track


BMW has released footage of its new M3 GTS making its track debut at the Ascari Race Resort.

The BMW M3 GTS is produced at the BMW M GmbH manufacturing facility in Germany. It gets a larger and more powerful V8 engine - 4.4 litres, making 444bhp - revised management for the 7-speed dual clutch transmission and modified suspension. The car has also been optimised with regard to aerodynamics and lightweight construction, and looks stunning in the only available colour, vivid orange.

Conceived as a 'club sport' version of the M3, the GTS is likely to be the current model's swansong, as there'll be a new M3 in 2012.

Only 150 will be built, and all have been pre-sold at a cost of £116,500. We're not sure how many are coming to the UK, but if you've got one ordered do let us know.

Meanwhile, stay tuned for our driving story on this fabulous new BMW soon...

    Still got to be a GT3 RS for that kind of money, but the Bimmer looks and sounds great.

    Agree. Which one will be the fastest to £80k? biggrin

    Its a pity they couldn't have produced something for about 70-80k and sold it in larger numbers, but I heard/read that the CSL didn't make money for BMW so they won't do that again, I guess this is a CSL but for people with deeper pockets....

    I like it very much..
