Timed perfectly to coincide with BMW's 24Hours of Nürburgring win, G-Power has announced two special edition M3 Clubsport models.
Both the Tornado CS and GT2 S - the Tornado is the more subdued of the two - get G-Power's SK II CS supercharger system, lightened wheels, and a "Clubsport" coilover system.
Both cars crank out 600 horsepower and 580 Nm of torque, resulting in a theoretical top speed of over 320 km/h with a six-speed (330 km/h with the 7-speed DCT).
The GT2 S, G-Power Motorsport's first official vehicle, is a turn-key racer costing a princely €139,495 before taxes. It's aimed at consumers looking for a BMW version of Porsche's GT3 RS (and who decided the M3 GTS is a bit bland).
G-POWER M3 TORNADO CS / G-POWER M3 GT2 S
• 600 hp / 441 kW at 7,800 r/min (+ 180 hp / 132 kW)
• 580 Nm at 5,300 r/min (+ 180 Nm)
• Top speed: > 320 km/h with 6-speed manual
• Top speed: > 330 km/h with 7-speed DCT
• 0-100 km/h: TORNADO CS < 4.3s / GT2 S < 4.1s
• 0-200 km/h: TORNADO CS < 11.8s
Thanks to BMW Motorsport team’s win at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race in 2010, G-Power released two new vehicles. The BMW M3 GT2 S, represented G-Power’s aim to appeal to BMW fans worldwide in a vehicle similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Meanwhile, G-Power showcased their tuning abilities with the BMW M3 Tornado CS for the public, a slightly less powerful version of the GT2. Their press release described both as street legal ticketed with the €10,800 SK II CS supercharger upgrade, the same as the Alpina B6 GT3.
