Way back in 2011, BMW introduced the limited edition M3 CRT (Carbon Racing Technology), which was 45 kg lighter than the standard model. BMW built only 67 units, each powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine developing 450 hp (331 kW) and 440 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) was dealt with in just 4.4 seconds while the top speed was electronically limited at 290 km/h or 180 mph.

The BMW M3 GTS made its debut in 2009 and was a track-focused version of the M3 Coupe. It was powered by a 4.4-liter V8 and benefited from 450 hp and a 0-100 km/h sprint of 4.4 seconds, while the top speed was 305 km/h or 189.5 mph. All of this is part of history now, with the new models hitting the market. But, if you’re passionate enough, G-Power will provide you with the strongest version of the S65 V8 high-revving engine of the M3 CRT and M3 GTS.

The tuner fitted a supercharger systems based on the radial superchargers developed by ASA Kompressor, while the engine was adapted for forced induction, resulting in a total output of 650 hp and 630 Nm of torque. The engine was also connected to a new all-titanium exhaust system made by G-Power; so, what about the number? The G-Power M3 GTS and M3 CRT accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.8 seconds, while the top speed is 323 km/h or 200.7 mph. Please note that the 650 hp G-Power SK II supercharger system will set you BMW owners back about 23,500 Euro (excluding tax) plus installation.
