Everyone loves the E30 M3. Its boxy fender flares, manic four-cylinder engine and race-bred talents make it a blast to drive even today. But can it hold its own against an M3 from the modern era?
Many purists consider the German-market BMW M3 CSL the pinnacle of the marque. Lightweight, powerful, purposeful. Its worth's been proven as the brand new, 450-hp, $170,000 BMW M3 GTS has bested it by merely two seconds 'round the Nürburgring.
The BMW M3 GTS is the fastest M3 ever with a spicier 450 hp V8, factory roll cage, functional aerodynamic upgrades, and retina-searing paint job. At $170,000 it's the ultimate ultimate driving machine. Here's everything you need to know.
Though the roll-caged BMW M3 GTS was unveiled way back in November, we've finally got stats: 444HP with a 0-to-62MPH time of 4.4 seconds. It's very orange and rear seats are for wimps. Check out the Nurburgring testing clip below.
