Even higher performance and more limited than GTS M3 coming soon called GTS-R?
Rumors are running rampant about an even lighter weight and higher performance M3 than the GTS which will be revealed soon.
Some sources state the Paris auto show will be the reveal. Rumors are even that the US might get this vehicle. With the BMW victory at the 24 hours of the Nurburgring it seems BMW wants to celebrate and hopefully this time everyone will be included.
The car will most likely be a street version of the GT2 racecar. What does this mean? Well, we aren't quite sure. The GTS has a 4.4 liter motor and we would expect this rumored model to get that same motor with further tweaks mated to a DCT.

Wait, so this is going to get the flat-plane crank too?
I have have this thing for flat-plane V8's......... Ferrari F40 or 458 Italia anyone?
I know this is OT, but does anyone know if all of Ferrari's V8's, past and present, utilize 180-degree crankshafts?
