BMW To Debut Four New Models At Frankfurt Auto Show

The M5 and the M3 GTS, of course, will cause enthusiasts to salivate at an unhealthy, fluid-draining rate. But while the 1-Series will be redesigned for the first time since its debut in 2004—no insignificant debut at any other show—it’s the i3 electric car that will make the biggest impact at the show.
The i3, as leaked before, is BMW’s mass-produced electric car with a 160-mile range and a passenger cell made from carbon fiber. If anything, it’s BMW’s firing shot into the electric propulsion game, with much of the company’s reputation behind it.

BMW M3 GTS Makes Its Presence Known On The Nurburgring [Video]

The BMW M3 isn’t what it used to be. It’s still a potent performance car in the hands of the right driver, but sucessive versions have become a little too mainstream. The first-generation E30 was only for the hardcore, and the E36 maintained that tradition. By the time the E46 came around in 2002, it became the official car of Bluetooth-wearing striped-shirt bros, while the cabriolet with the SMG gearbox was a must-have for bleached blonde trophy wives. There wasn’t anything wrong with the car per se; it was still the best car this side of a Porsche 911, but the clientele was a little suspect.

With the E92 M3 GTS, BMW has made a car so bonkers that nobody who wears designer clothes or hair product would ever consider it. There’s no audio system to blast your tunes with, no air-conditioning to keep the sweat from dripping off your blowout hairdo and onto your Ed Hardy shirt, and the reduced insulation and titanium exhaust mean that your cell phone conversations will have to wait.

What the GTS does have is a rollcage, a front splitter, rear wing, uprated dampers and brakes, plus all kinds of M goodies to help maximize your trackday experience.

While BMW has released several videos of the M3 GTS, we now have some great amateur video after one lucky owner enlisted a friend to help capture the majestic roar of a high-strung V8 breathing through eight individual throttle bodies.

Report: Sadly, BMW Confirms M3 GTS Not Headed to U.S.

As with so many niche market enthusiast vehicles before it, the GTS will remain strictly in the racing-glove covered hands of Europeans as they triumph over apexes and braking zones at their local race track, blissfully ignorant of just how lucky they are.
