BMW M3 GTS-R Rumored to be Final, Hardest-Core E92 M3 Yet


BMW is rumored to be working on an even more hard-core version of the newly released M3 GTS. According to supposed BMW insider "SCOTT26" on M3Post, the M3 GTS-R will be the final and most hard-core M3 yet.

Included in the package will be wider rear fenders and new lighter-weight wheels. There will also be an even long front splitter and the GTS-R will keep the GTS's carbon fiber rear spoiler. Additional weight savings will be the result of the use of carbon fiber for both the hood and trunk. There's no available info on engine output, but BMW engineers are reportedly working to string a few extra ponies out of the 4.0-liter V8 – which will be matched to BMW's 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The upcoming M5's KERS regenerative braking setup is also a possibility.

The final decision to go ahead with the M3 GTS-R is believed to depend on the outcome of this past weekend's Nurburgring 24 Hour race and with BMW topping the podium in the fender-flared M3 GT2, the M3 GTS-R would now seem like a done deal.
