Set to go on sale in spring 2010, the M3 GTS will cost approximately €115,000 ($170,625 USD).

BMW has released two new videos showing the M3 GTS in action.

Designed to be harder, crisper, and more responsive track ready version than the standard M3, the GTS boasts a 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces 450 bhp. Besides the enlarged engine (up 0.4-liters and 36 bhp), the car also features numerous weight saving changes such the omission of a rear seat, automatic air conditioning, an audio system, and sound insulation. Other goodies include six-point seat belt harnesses, a rollcage, and a seven-speed M DKG Drivelogic transmission.

While the Europeans can savor a new high performance M-model, our American readers better take a good look - the car is "not currently planned for the North American market."
