G-Power reveals Bmw M3 GT2 S and M3 Tornado CS

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

As a tribute to the BMW Motorsport team's win at the 2010 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race, G-Power comes out with two vehicles. With the G-Power M3 GT2 S, the engineers at G-Power aimed to appeal to BMW enthusiasts who want a vehicle "along the lines of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS." Meanwhile, the G-Power M3 Tornado CS is the "civilian version" of the same car.

G-Power's press release described both cars as street legal and to have been given the 10,800 euros (excl. tax) SK II CS supercharger upgrade, which includes the same compressor as the Alpina B6 GT3. The cars also get an aluminum airbox, aluminum charge air cooler, and dual flow carbon intake. Weight is reduced b 26 kgs. with the installation of a titanium exhaust. These changes result to both vehicles getting a 43% increase in power, with a spec sheet that lists 600 PS (441 kW), and up to 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque.

The car has a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) when using the seven-speed DCT gearbox, with the six speed manual transmission enabling the car to operate at up to 320 km/h (199 mph). Weight is the factor wherein these two cars differ significantly.

The GT2 S has a full carbon-fiber body kit, with replacement parts at the front skirt, each of the wings, and the rear end. Lightweight material is used for the front and lip spoilers too. To sum it up, the M3 GT2 S is lighter by 150 kg, despite having the same power output as the Tornado CS. This enables the GT2 S to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the Tornado CS.

When it comes to getting to the 0-200 km/h mark, figures for the GT2 S are unknown but its sister model achieves this mark in 11.8 seconds. The Tornado CS is fitted with forged Silverstone ClubSport wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

The 20-inch wheels measure nine-inches wide at the front, and 10.5-inches at the rear. Meanwhile, the GT2 S uses Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires wrapped around three-piece Silverstone RS wheels measuring 9x20 front and 11.5 rear. The G-Power M3 GT2 S is priced from 139,495 euros, exclusive of taxes and paperwork. The retail price of the G-Power M3 Tornado CS was not revealed.
