Yea I would take a gt3 or something similar over this but I would think this car is geared toward the car collector market, with those people already having a turbo, 458, and a gt3.
Great car though, I'd love to have one

Man that car has some BAD swirlmarks

And those cuts in the radiator support make the whole job look really shady/unprofessional. Not cutting into my car--no thanks!

I would have though serious collectors don't bother with Tuner cars?

See here is the problem. BMW is not ferrari or porsche. It sits in a very nice place between toyota and porsche in the quality/price scale. Anything above 90k that BMW is just too much in my opinion. I don't doubt the car is amazing, its just the brand name doesn't carry that amount very well.

Car and Driver already ran a 3.9 in a DCT car while Road and Track ran 4.1 in a 6spd. manual. The issue with this car is probably no traction...285's with that much hp.

Savagery. Savagery that can probably only be understood and/or appreciated by piloting it.

I like it although it's getting expensive for what it is.

actually it is not always true. A serious collector I know recently bought a moderately modded e92 M3 sedan.

collectors want EVERY car brand. This is a collectors car.

You will never find anyone who says, I think I will sell my second car, 911 GT3 and buy the M3 GTS G-power.... this is for the very rich that wants the top performing BMW of the modern age, and this car certainly fits the bill.

You might argue that the standard M3 GTS is a better collector car, but there is something special about the G-Power heritage, they have been producing performance marvels for years - look at their history.

To those talking about 0-60 times, you simply have no clue what this car is about.

What dissapointing numbers 0-60 which means nothing? It did pretty awesome at Hockenheim, destroying the basic GTS and matching Lambo Gallardo + 977 GT3 RS. Those are the numbers that matter.
