If you’ve followed the M3 over the past 25 years, you’ll definitely want to watch our video debut of the new 2011 BMW M3 GTS.
Host Jessi Lang breaks down the M3 GTS’ new features for the interior and exterior as well as the specs of the many components that make the M3 a formidable sport coupe. Rolf Scheibner, BMW M3 Product Manager, also steps into the spotlight to briefly speak to the racing DNA of the M3 and how they applied the M3 heritage to the limited edition GTS.
The 4.4 L V8 engine mated to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission produces 450 horsepower at 8,300 rpm and 325 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. With the powerful engine, a max speed of 190, and a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, the limited edition M3 GTS is both racetrack ready and road legal.
But now for the bad news… while the pricing will be around $170,000, the limited edition M3 will not be available in the US.
