One for the road from BMW

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

A rac­ing ver­sion of this car com­pleted the Le Mans 24 Hour race.

Now BMW is sell­ing the “road” model of the M3 GTS Coupé. It has a 450ps en­gine (443.8bhp) V8 en­gine with a re­vised seven-speed M du­al­clutch trans­mis­sion with and mod­i­fied sus­pen­sion technology, im­proved aero­dy­nam­ics and light­weight com­po­nents.

These in­clude a car­bon fi­bre/plas­tic roof, poly­car­bon­ate rear win­dow, no rear seats and limited sound in­su­la­tion. This lat­ter omis­sion should give full en­joy­ment of the sounds from the thin-walled light­weight rac­ing ex­haust sys­tem with ti­ta­nium si­lencers.

The top speed is a Porsche­like 190mph with 0-62mph in 4.4 sec­onds. UK Pro­duc­tion starts in Jan­uary and it is too early to give a price. The only colour is orange.

READY FOR THE ROAD: BMW’ M3 GTS Coupé.
