G-Power is proud to announce an evolution of their M3 tuning program which now delivers significantly more power.

In 2010 they launched an M3 GT2 S which had 600 HP (441 kW) and 528 Nm (428 lb-ft) but these numbers have now increased to 720 HP (530 kW) at 5,900 rpm and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) at 5,900 rpm in the new M3 GT2 R. It might not look like a car you could drive on public roads, but this heavily modified M3 is one hundred percent road-legal.

All that power comes in a package weighing less than 1,500 kg (3,306 lbs) which allows G-Power's M3 to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.7 seconds and the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 9.5 seconds, en route to a top speed of more than 205 mph (330 km/h).

These impressive figures are achieved thanks to an SK III "Sporty Drive" supercharger system which comes with a modified crankshaft and an increased displacement from 4.0- to 4.6-liters. The cooling system has been designed specifically for the new system, while the impressive diet the M3 has gone through includes a full carbon fiber body kit (hood, wings, front/rear skirt, front lip and rear spoiler).

The G-Power M3 GT2 R rides on the tuner's coilover suspension with 20-inch Silverstone RS forged wheels wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Cup tires measuring 245/30 ZR 20 at the front axle and 315/25 ZR 20 at the back. Stopping power is provided by G-Power's six-piston brake calipers with 396mm rotors for front wheels and four-piston calipers with 380mm rotors for rear axle.

On the inside it has gained carbon racing bucket seats which are each 12 kg (26 lbs) lighter than stock ones. To shave off more weight they took out the rear bench, while for safety purposes they added a FIA-compliant rollcage.

For 41,650 EUR (plus installation fees) you can get the supercharger kit with a complete titanium exhaust system. The carbon fiber body kit will set you back 30,000 EUR, while the hood alone is 3,600 EUR. Opt for the wheels + tires combo and you will be 12,000 EUR poorer. If you still have money in the bank after these upgrades, you can order the 14,460 EUR (front) + 11,778 EUR (rear) ceramic braking system. A complete M3 GT2 R kicks off at 195,310 EUR.

Additional details can be found in the attached press release.
