With 450HP on tap, the limited edition BMW M3 GTS is not only more powerful than the stock M3, but it’s also lighter and comes with a full-blown racing suspension, making it arguably the best 3-Series model of its generation.
Nevertheless, famed BMW tuner G-Power thinks something’s missing, namely “the ultimate output”. That’s why the Autenzell-based specialist will modify three GTS models, two of which have already arrived at its headquarters in Germany.
G-Power’s SK II CS “Sporty Drive” supercharger will be adapted to work with the 4.4-liter V8 engine pushing output to over 600HP. There’s no word on any other upgrades, but buyers can expect an improved braking system and additional chassis tweaks.
In any case, G-Power is confident that the spiced up M3 GTS will give the Porsche 911 GT3 RS a run for its money. "After this modification the BMW M3 GTS can finally show the armada of Porsche 911 GT3 RS who’s the boss at the various clubsport racing events," said G-Power in a statement.
We’d say that's to be seen, but time will surely clarify this dilemma.
