Here’s a lovely gallery of the BMW M3 GTS (previously known also as the M3 CSL, GT and GT4) and while we don’t have a lot of info from BMW right now, as least we’ve got the pics. The M3 GTS is fully kitted out with an orange paint job, 19-inch competition alloy wheels shod 225/35 at the front and 285/30 at the rear and with six-piston calipers front and four for the rear.
The front splitter is very in your face, though you’re more likely to see the rear wing when this extreme M3 gets out on the road. The interior is minimalist in style, with racing bucket seats, roll bar mounting points, racing harnesses and Macrolon rear windscreen. The M3 GTS weighs in at 1,490 kg, quite a bit less than the standard M3 at about 1,680 kg.
No engine specs are available yet, but reports say the BMW M3 GTS should have a 4.4-litre V8 engine producing 450 hp, and should have a seven-seven duel-clutch transmission. After the jump are two videos, one of the studio shots and another video of the M3 GTS track action where you can here some more of the tantalising engine sound.
