Racing Dynamics is the trademark of Racing Dynamics S.p.A., an Italian tuning company specializing in BMW Group motorcars. The company was founded in 1980 in Milan, Italy by Federico Pavoncelli, who is the creative force behind the brand, and his brother Francesco. The distinctive Racing Dynamics logo features a stylized version of the founder's family crest, surrounded by the RACING DYNAMICS wording on an emerald green background.

Racing Dynamics S.p.A. holds the unique distinction of being the sole non-German BMW tuner to have a worldwide market presence. In the early 1990s, Racing Dynamics backed some of the early BMW entries in the 2 liter BTCC, then went on to race its own cars in the Italian and Japanese Super Touring Championships. However, since 1996, the company has focused mainly on passenger cars, as racing proved to be too much of a distraction from its core business.

Racing Dynamics' claims to fame are its engine performance modifications, which are all developed at its own facilities in Milan, Italy. The Company's Italian style is quite pervasive in all of its product designs, which results in cars that stand out for their subtle elegance.

In 2007 Racing Dynamics, supplied its RS56 V-10 motor to Fisker Coachbuild as an option for its own Latigo CS.¨
Very good information. That's a shame. It reminds me of that whole Eisenmann/Eisenhaus fiasco from a little while back. Good luck with the car. Are you going to take on La Carrera Panamericana?

Too busy to pick it up - Fawk, I would find the time. Then again, I wouldn't let anyone else pick it up for me if I coulndn't personally. Just found this thread - Incredible car

Why would you think it cannot be done in Asia, Racing Dynamics has shops in both Europe and North America, like me, you can ship it to them and get it done if you so wish.

Hands down, really?

It may be down a little on power, but it looks more track ready.

Official engine specs haven't been released, all articles say around or about 450hp.

Would be a fun comparo to see. Most likely the GTS will never see US soil.

If its 450 then the 46 has at least a 75bhp advantage and a better power to weight ratio.

That doesn't necessarily mean it will go around a track quicker.

Your car is amazing, best M3 on the forum. You basically built what BMW said they were not going to do with this M3.

A magazine needs to do an article on your car, it is a masterpiece.

This will definitely be an interesting comparison. The great thing about the 4.4 is it looks to be utilizing the entire 8400RPM.

An interesting side note about the RS46. I was comparing the HP and Torque curves of the 4.6 motor to the 997 GT3 and if you don't take into account the different figures in HP/Torque and just overlay the dynos right on top of each other, they are nearly identical.

The way the RS46 motor lays down power is the same as the 997 GT3. The peak, drop-off and shape of the curve is almost dead on.

The E9X stock is a very flat curve, compared to a GT3 and the RS46. Not sure if it's a good or a bad thing.

Hahaha!! I wouldn´t know if that is good or bad either, however, the longer the curve as long as it is flat or increasing the better IMO. I would also say increasing is better than flat in general.

I am curious to see what an RD Club sport can do on the Nordschleife?

Is there any RD sports here in Europe?

Get ahold of Sort Auto and let them do the test to see how this car compares to the M3 GTS



Im curious to know?

I was thinking the same thing. How does the stripped out RS46 compare to the GTS? I'm also curious to see what the price difference is going to be as well (In the US if they make it available in the US).
