G-Power M3 GTS Update: Good for 720hp

Here's an update on the G-power tuned M3 GTS:

The first three G-power M3 GTS have arrived and their engine displacements have been bored to an increase of 10% and rebuilt with low-compression forged pistons. This extra displacement, combined with a specially tuned version of their SK II CS supercharger system, has resulted in 720hp! This represents an increase of 270hp over the factory M3 GTS (450hp). How much faster this catapults the car from the factory figures (4.4 sec 0-100km/h and 305km/h) is not yet known, but will surely be announced in due time. Source: Autoblog.nl via GTspirit via BMWblog.

Original G-Power Press Release:
Quote:
21.01.2011

The BMW M3 GTS seams to have all it takes for being the ultimate BMW M3: lightweight body parts, carbon aerodynamic parts, titanium exhaust, racing suspension, roll cage and racing bucket seats for six-point seatbelts. BMW is right when they call it an “extreme athlete for street and racetrack”.

But there is one thing it is missing. The ultimate output. An additional 30 hp compared to the standard BMW M3, that costs just half the price of the M3 GTS, is not too bad, but the ultimate output for the M3 GTS can only be provided by G-POWER.

That is why the first couple of BMW M3 GTS, out of the limited edition of 220 unites, have started to arrive at G-POWER for their output enhancement. A specially adapted version of G-POWER’s SK II CS supercharger system pushes the factory output of 450hp to a more suitable 6XXhp.

After this modification the BMW M3 GTS can finally show the armada of Porsche 911 GT3 RS who’s the boss at the various clubsport racing events.

Right now the first of the announced BMW M3 GTS has just arrived at G-POWER. Two more are already on their way. So a little piece of advice for the “competitors” of the G-POWER trained BMW M3 GTS: prepare yourself for a rough ride…

The cost for the car and G-Power add-on mods just doesn't make any sense when you compare to the competitors, but I guess some are really die hard M3 fans.

I'd literally rather push my broken down 458 than pay the same price for a G power GTS. As long as the recall work was done and the engine wouldn't burst into flames.

Is this gpower supercharged gts going to blow up. I know other gts owners will have their fingers crossed. Their gts might go up in price.

G-Power are working on their own lightweight M3 with carbon body parts. It will be lighter than the GTS, have the supercharger and be far cheaper. Now that is the M3 I would buy if I had the money
