BMW Working on a High Performance M3 or GT4 Production Car?

Also as reported on M3post Homepage.


(thanks to Advevo for originally finding this post!)

With the E46 M3 CSL, people have been given a look into what BMW could do when it turned its direction towards lightweight and efficiency over the base M3.

With the introduction of the E92, many of you may remember all the buzz and talk about a possible E92M3 CSL. Remember the red test car?

BMW a year later shot down those rumors of a CSL and ruled the car out. However, today MotorAuthority has put up these new pictures of a seemingly stripped down M3, wearing racing gear and blasting around the ring. As they point out, BMW has suggested that they would put a street version of the GT4 into production and this could be that very car, which would in effect be a CSL. Of special interest is the fact that this car is said to be using KERS (regenerative braking systems)!.

Visit MotorAuthority to see their writeup and the full set of pictures.
