Mean Machine – 2011 BMW M3 GTS (video inside)

BMW recently released details on their most extreme M3 to date. The 2011 BMW M3 GTS is the successor of the E46 M3 CSL. Like the CSL, the GTS features substantially reduced weight, complemented by slightly increased horsepower. Compared to the normal M3's naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8, the GTS gains extra displacement, for a total of 4.4 liters. This results in 450 horsepower, delivered to the wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The interior is stripped down for maximum performance, with two racing seats up front and a roll cage in place of the rear seats. The suspension has also been stiffened, and a spoiler promises to keep the rear end planted. First deliveries are scheduled to begin in Germany next May, carrying a sticker price of 115,000 euros (about $170k) before taxes.
