The pinnacle of the E92 BMW M3 family is the M3 GTS, the racetrack-oriented model which was available in limited edition in Europe.
With only 150 units ever built and sold, the M3 GTS is a rarity on the roads and when spotted, it always turns heads. The model shown here was seen near Nurburg, Germany at a car event along with some supercars.
The 150 units of the race-oriented M3 GTS went to private owners, racing companies and tuners, and successfully ran in some European racing series.
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.
In terms of performance and safety, the most powerful version of the high-performance BMW M3 Coupe features a 331 kW/450 hp engine. 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 optimized with regard to aerodynamics and lightweight construction.
Top speed is 305 km/h.
