A photoshoot that you don’t get to see every day and certainly not in the United States. Tomirri Photography out of London, UK, creates some amazing photography out of equally amazing cars: the BMW M3 GTS and M3 Frozen Black.

The super sporty M3 GTS went on sale last summer and ahead of its launch, BMW announced that the limited edition has been already sold out. 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.

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.

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.

Also revealed last summer is the BMW M3 Competition Package Frozen Black. The special edition M3 was launched on the verge of the 25th Anniversary of the M3.

The mate paintwork is matched to red brake callipers, black leather with red stitching and gloss black 19″ alloy wheels. Each of these M3s produced feature the the M Dual Clutch Transmission as part of the standard specification. Design wise, modified rear lights with glass covers in a homogeneous red color provide an additional visual accentuation in the BMW M3 Coupe. With two harmoniously illuminating light banks fed by LED units, they create a characteristic nocturnal design.

Power-wise, the BMW M3 in Frozen Black produces the standard 420 horsepower. Both M3s feature black painted wheels type Y-spoke 359 M.

As an interesting tidbit, the Frozen Black was specially designed for BMW chief designer, Adrian Van Hooydonk who had the privilege to drive the first M3 with this paint job.
