The M3 RS package sees the interior stripped out and fitted with a pair of racing bucket seats, six-point harnesses, carbon fibre door panels, a fire extinguisher and a Wiechers Sport welded-in, DMSB-certified rollcage. A set of 10 x 19-inch forged ATS Superlight wheels also contribute to the car’s 190 kg weight loss.
Under the hood, remapping of the ECU software sees output from the naturally aspirated 4.0-litre V8 engine rise from 309 kW (414 hp) and 400 Nm of torque to 331 kW (450 hp) and 431 Nm. Those changes mean 100 km/h appears in 4.6 seconds and 200 km/h in 14.7s, while the deactivation of the V-Max results in a 299 km/h (186 mph) top speed.
Chassis upgrades include a Bilstein B16 PSS10 coilover kit developed jointly with the company, which features 10 point damping and rebound adjustability, while the brakes gain racing pads, steel lines and optimized cooling ducts. A carbon fibre rear wing also adds to the car’s track credentials.
RS Racing Team can supply complete vehicles to customers, with prices ranging from €80,000 and €110,000 – depending on specification. Driver tuition can also be provided.
