It will be either ridiculously priced or won't see USA or both

M-division wants to build a true super car, BMW enthusiasts want one, but BMW doesn't allow one.

I wonder though, if the M3 GTS costs like 150-170k, which is a car based on 3 series, how much an M super car would cost? And who would buy it? Let say for 250k, would you buy M super car or F458 or GT2 or Gallardo...
I personally would buy the F458 Italia ....

Please consider making a focused version of the F8X.
Agreed, I really don't mind the baby's bottom smooth leather or pdc or sat nav or electric rear blind but frankly i'd rather have a stripper with less sound deadening material and switchable exhaust...

Can someone maybe start a poll of current M3 owners asking whether they would prefer a stripper or a luxury loaded M3?

There's not even a business case for offering a Priority One-only option package that would be intended to replace some of the luxury options with lightness?
