The BMW M3 GTS is largely hand-built by the most skilled craftsmen
at BMW M GmbH Focused on motorsport, the modifications comprise both
the drivetrain, the suspension and the body of the car, as well as its
interior. Market launch of the BMW M3 GTS will be in spring (European)
Offering this truly exclusive model, apparently there are only going to be a thousand of them, it is being marketed as the perfect car for people who value exclusivity and have a keen enthusiasm for motorsport. BMW has come out saying that the technologies in this car have been developed through its extensive knowledge of the motorsport industry. And that its “race-oriented modifications enhancing both performance and safety”, the BMW M3 GTS will apparently be ready to go in Clubsport events on the track. So that the driver is able to make his way to the race track in the very same car he will use for racing.
Consistent Lightweight construction, adjustable aerodynamic units, an increase in engine size and output on the V8 high-speed power unit and suspension technology all gives the BMW M3 GTS a special place, around about the groinal region, among high-performance cars built for Clubsport racing.
Through its design and construction, the materials used and its special equipment, the BMW M3 GTS becomes a lightweight performer, offering a genuine motorsport driving experience in every respect, including exciting the females that come watch just like Schumi does.
The eight-cylinder power unit of the BMW M3 GTS has been enlarged in size, lucky bastard the websites never worked for me, to 4.4 litres and boosted output to some 450 hp boasts construction principles and technical details carried over directly from motorsport. The features typical of a motorsport engine include the crankcase made of a special aluminium-silicon alloy and constructed in bedplate design, individual throttle butterflies, anti-knock sensors with ion flow technology, and, wet sump oil supply optimised for supreme driving dynamics.
Power is transmitted in the BMW M3 GTS by the M double-clutch gearbox with Drivelogic also available as an option on the regular production model. This seven-speed MDKG Drivelogic gearbox follows a principle also developed for motorsport, shifting gears without the slightest interruption of engine power. The transmission was developed specifically for a particularly powerful high-speed engine. The gearshift characteristics on the seven-speed MDKG Drivelogic have been tailored specifically to the modified power unit of the BMW M3 GTS.
When you have a fast car with a big engine, you need big breaks that work fast. The high-performance brake system of the BMW M3 GTS features fixed callipers with six pistons up front and four pistons on the rear wheels. The race-oriented set-up of DSC Dynamic Stability Control naturally considers the supreme dynamic potential of the BMW M3 GTS. Different-sized tyres front and rear running on 19-inch M light-alloy Competition rims in double-spoke design ensure optimum transmission of acceleration and brake forces to the road.
