Everyone has high expectations for what the tuning specialists of G-Power have prepared for BMW’s M3 GTS. The base car of the M3 GTS has a lightweight body and delivers up to 450hp, making it comparable to some Porsches. The stock model could be considered one of the best 3-Series models of the present generation. It’s believed that three units of this model were taken in by G-Power.
By installing the “Sporty Drive” supercharger system, the model’s performance received a boost from 450 hp to 635 hp and 630 Nm of torque, due to the ASA supercharger that was featured in the ALPINA B5S, B6S and B7S models as well as in the ALPINA B6 GT3. G-Power also made use of lightweight, all-titanium exhaust system, which significantly reduced the exhaust back pressure.
To adjust to the supercharged setup, the ECU system also needed to be reworked. BMW had already reduced the weight of the M3 GTS drastically but G-Power was able to lower it further by using a carbon-fiber airbox. G-Power boasts that its package includes a loud exhaust and it also ensures that it has an output of 635hp.
This allows the G-Power M3 GTS to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and from 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.9 seconds. It boasts of reaching a top speed of 323 km/h (200.7 mph).
The German car journal “sport auto” clocked these figures when it tested the G-POWER M3 GTS. These data were published on May 20. The 635 hp G-POWER SK II supercharger system is priced at EUR23,500 (exclusive of taxes and installation costs).
