New information regarding BMW M3 GT4 “Street version”

Source: BMW Blog

* It won’t be called M3 CSL.
* Instead, BMW will either call it “M3 GT4 Street” or “M3 GT”.

Engine | Drivetrain

* Naturally aspirated engine with an increased displacement of 4,400 cc (based on the S65).
* At least 450 hp, likely more. (445 HP)
* No information regarding KERS (KERS will likely debut in the F10 M5)
* 7 speed DCT only, no manual transmission.
* ‘State of the art’ exhaust system, but not Akrapovic.- (ARVIN MERITOR /w/200-cell race cats and 2 resonators)

Chassis | Brakes | Aerodynamics:

* Brembo brakes (6 pistons front – 4 pistons rear) with steel brake discs. (365mm front, 345mm rear SLOTTED DISCS) Ceramic composite brakes optionally available.
* Weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs) compared to E92 M3, maybe even more. (due to the removal of the rear seat and the switch to lighter RECARO front race seats)
* Available as a 2 seater. However, rear seats are optionally available.
* Rollbars standard (there’s a delete option).
* Adjustable front splitter. (made of ABS plastic)
* Adjustable mechanical suspension, no EDC. (SACHS)
* 25 mm lower compared to E92 M3
* Same width as the E92 M3.
* Fantastic new wheels. (BBS lightweight cast flow formed MESH)
* New ’state of the art’ seats. (RECARO)

General information

* Nurburgring laptime: 7:40 min
* Not available through BMW dealer network, but directly from BMW Motorsport.
* Street legal (of course).
* Exclusively painted in Inka Orange (a hommage to early BMW race and sports cars). Availability of other colors at a later date.
* The car was tested secretly in France and on a private race track (likely Miramas).
* It will compete with the 911 GT3.
* Limited Production (some report 25 units per year).
* Price: Unknown, but less than the price for an 911 GT3. ($110,000 EUROS


Great news for BMW fans! That's a pretty impressive Ring lap time.

I so want this car - would be nice to have something different and rare. Other than being DCT only. I really hope this makes its way to Canada!

that's incredible seeing as MSRP is $ 235,400.00 and they dont usually discount such low production models....and that's before porsche hits you up for all the little "add-ons"

oh well, as soon as I have $175000 in hand i'll let you know

You would have just as much fun (if not more) in a GT3 and have some extra dough to pay for the maintenence it will require!

I would prefer a GT3RS over a GT2.I have one in our lease fleet that I delivered a couple of years ago.

i have to agree, better in the RS unique colours (not many cars can pull off that orange)

I used to love white a few years back when there werent many on the road (had one of the first e90s in white), but now every yuppie girl with her chanel sunglasses and LV purse drives a white 3 series or mercedes C class...

main reason i went back to black
