Autocar UK published a video review of “one of the most exciting” M cars, the BMW M3 GTS.

M3 GTS embeds the core values of the M Division and takes the already sporty M3 to a new level.

Thanks to an increase in engine displacement and some fine-tuning to the engine, the BMW M3 GTS produces 450 horsepower and ensures superior performance. The core of the development was the landing gear, based on the BMW M3 GT4 and transposed into a street-legal vehicle. The rear wing was first seen in World Touring Car Championship WTCC cars and now makes its way into GTS as well.

The BMW M3 GTS is produced at the BMW M GmbH manufacturing facility. In addition to a larger and more powerful V8 engine, exclusive tuning of the 7-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic and modified suspension technology, the car, which is designed for club sport use, has also been specifically optimised with regard to aerodynamics and lightweight construction.

Video Review: BMW M3 GTS

The supreme sporting potential of the BMW M3 GTS is underlined, inter alia, by a power-to-weight ratio that has been lowered to 3.4 kg per hp. Featuring a transmission and suspension configuration which has been optimised for the racetrack, the BMW M3 GTS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.4 seconds. The car reaches the 1000 metre mark from a standstill in just 22.5 seconds. Top speed is 305 km/h.

Let’s have a look at the video review.

    They said the same thing about the CSL, too expensive. But see one today, and you still admire and respect it. You know it was expensive, but you know you’re looking at a classic.

    Same thing will happen with the GTS. It will remain a rare, but accomplished classic for decades to come.

    You pay for these things, you know:)
