Looks fantastic, but really curious to see how much weight was actually pared. Also does anybody know whether this will use a tuned version of the S65 or a detuned version of the GTS motor?

Love the front and rear spoiler. If they sell them, I'll buy them.

Multi-piston calipers are cool on an M car indeed. Long overdue and probably signs of things to come. They look like standard Brembo to me. Only thing I do not like about them is fixed bridge...

Did anyone else see how nice and thin those rims were on that M Coupe in the background? Pot hole paranoia!

Finally BMW gives some proper Brakes for the car I think it should be standard for M car.

Why don't they do light weight car on Coupe? as E46 CSL...

Lots of potential OEM upgrade parts to add to the wish list. Front and rear spoiler, brakes...

Nice find !!!

And two new details are revealed ... alcantara steering wheel and GTS exhaust ... but the car ist only an prototype. that shows only known parts from the GTS ... the car continue to hide its secrets ... the rest interior ist standard M3 and because all bodyparts are painted the intense of usage from carbon bodyparts are not visible ... until somebody knocks on bonnet, roof, trunk and door to hear if its plastic or metal.

I donīt also think for example that the production car would have the double hump dash with iDrive/Nav ... because of weightreduction reason ... I think A/C and Radio are the only electronical comfort intims ... also the production car would have to 100% some more sportier and lighter seats - if they come with alcantara or leather (as on the shown examples!) ... we have to wait and see.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

That's encouraging although they will probably cost a mint. It would have been nice to see these parts on the standard car. I guess they thought it was light enough already.
