2011 BMW M3 GTS

Known as the “fastest M3 ever,” the 2011 BMW M3 GTS recently hit up the Nurburgring. While BMW didn’t release any official lap time, we do have a video of the M3 GTS hitting up the Nordschleife circuit.

“The BMW M3 is an icon and internationally synonymous with the highest level of dynamics,” said Dr. Kay Segler, CEO of the BMW M GmbH. “Our aim was to develop a model variant that would prove its outstanding potential both on the road and at club sport racing events. The BMW M3 GTS is pure M feeling, embodying the brand values in a highly concentrated form.”

Check out the video after the jump.

Refresher: Weighing in at 3,285 pounds (the standard BMW M3 coupe weighs 3,704 pounds), the 2011 BMW M3 GTS is powered by a 4.4L V8 making 450-hp. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a 7-speed M DKG Drivelogic gearbox. The BMW M3 GTS accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph.
