RS-Racingteam has introduced a new tuning program for the BMW M3. Designed to deliver "more adrenaline for your senses," the RS-M3 is a track-focused model that features an adjustable sports suspension, a rear spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels. While the exterior is fairly restrained, the cabin loses the rear seat, carpeting and door pads. RS Racing then adds a roll cage, carbon fiber door panels and sports seats with six-point harnesses. Thanks to these modifications, the RS-M3 weighs 190 kg (419 lbs) less than the standard model.
Under the hood, the 4.0-liter V8 engine has been tuned to produce 450 HP (331 kW) and 431 Nm (318 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 14.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph). The RS-M3 is currently available and pricing starts at €80,000 ($106,760).
