Video: BMW M3 GTS at Nurburgring image

Here is a short video showing the new BMW M3 GT3 at the Ring – the Nurburgring circuit. As you can hear, the sound of the car is phenomenal !

The BMW M3 GTS tips the scales at around 1,490 kilograms (3,285 pounds). That’s more than impressive given that the standard M3 (U.S.-spec model) weighs in at 1,680kg (3,704 lbs). The serial production M3 gets a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8 engine pumping out 420HP. For the M3 GTS, BMW’s M department enlarged the displacement of the V8 to 4.4-liters thus promising an output of around 450 horsepower. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed M dual clutch transmission with adapted shift characteristics.
