G-Power BMW M3 GT2 R
Bayern-based tuning specialist G-Power has released details of its extreme BMW M3 GT2 R program.

Starting with the engine, G-Power takes the 4.0-litre V8 apart and reconstructs it with a new crankshaft, Mahle pistons and reinforced connecting rods, taking displacement up to 4.6-litres. The company’s SK III ASA T1-724 supercharger kit is then added, along with a carbon fibre air box, a titanium exhaust system with 100 cpsi metallic catalytic converters, an additional fuel pump, optimized ECU software and uprated cooling circuits, resulting in a monumental 537 kW (720 hp) and 700 Nm of torque at 0.7 bar. On the road the GT2 R rockets to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.5s, and on to a top speed in excess of 330 km/h (205 mph).

Chassis upgrades come in the form of a Clubsport coilover suspension kit, 20-inch Silverstone RS forged alloy wheels wrapped in 245/30 and 315/25 Michelin Pilot Cup tyres and a carbon ceramic brake system utilizing 396 mm front discs gripped by six-piston calipers and 380 mm items with four-piston calipers on the rear.

Helping to achieve a 1.500 kg kerb weight the GT2 R is fitted with a carbon fibre aero package comprising of new bumpers, wider front fenders, rear wheel arch extensions, a motorsport rear wing and heavily vented hood. Moving inside the cabin, the rear bench has been removed along with the factory front seats which have been replaced by lightweight carbon racing buckets. An FIA-approved roll-cage was also added for good measure.

Customers wanting the engine conversion alone will have to part with €41,650 – plus installation costs, while the complete transformation starts at €195,310.
