Video: BMW M3 GTS Review on Fifth Gear

The new BMW M3 GTS is a purpose built race car, and nothing says it more than simply taking a look inside. Roll cage, race seats, fire extinguisher and the works. The BMW M3 GTS is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 making 474 horsepower, and BMW will only make 250 of these to complete the limited production run. Power remains at stock levels but due to weight savings there is about 135 kg less weight to throw around.

Most of the performance work is in the suspension where the car is lowered 16mm in the front and 12mm in the rear giving it a lower center of gravity and overall better performance. The suspension and tires are top notch race grade and mean serious business.

190 mph Top Speed and 0-62 in 4.4 seconds for this M3, thanks to BMW removing the top speed limiter. The 7 speed automatic is the only transmission available with paddle shifters.

Fifth Gear did a video test of the new BMW M3 GTS and we included it for you here:

We love the Recaro seats and bright orange color. But can BMW justify that this car costs twice the price of a normal BMW M3? The car is stunning and we are looking forward to seeing how it performs in competition.
