Limited Production 311RS

Although we love, live, and breathe BMW here at IND, we can appreciate any and all type of car. The amazing Evo X seen here is no exception.

The 311RS project was envisioned by professional racing driver Ryan Gates to take an already excellent performance platform and transform it into a true sports car for the enthusiast by addressing critical details of the car's suspension, drivetrain, and braking systems. The car seen here is the first of 11 examples that will be built under the 311RS moniker, and is a sign of what's to come. This car boasts 440 wheel horsepower, JRZ suspension tuned specifically to Ryan's personal settings, and a brake package from Girodisc, among a host of other more secret details that create a true sports car.

I think the claim has been that the halogens are lighter. Those seats are perfection.

I agree. These seats are insane. And handbrake as well.

Cool looking car though.

Halogens are lighter but the completly useless rear seats are still installed?

'nuff said.

That is an awesome car. Thanks for sharing.

Edit: this car seems to be an upgraded version than the 'standard' one on the 311RS website. The car above has more HP and what looks like JRZ 12 31's instead of the RS1. It remains an awesome car either way.

It looks like a bolt-in half cage so it can be taken out.

haha if they wanted to go lighter, they should have pulled those backseats out... no point of having them there with the roll bars
