BMW M3 tuned up via RS Racingteam’s RS-M3 program
RS Racingteam has revealed their new BMW M3 sedan which comes in with an RS-M3 program. The vehicle will be powered by a 4.0 liter V8 engine, now offering output of 450 hp at 8300 rpm while torque will stand at 431 Nm at 4100 rpm.
This enhances performance, while top speed will now stand at 299 kmph. Acceleration time from 0 to 100 kmph will be possible in 4.6 seconds and from 0 to 200 kmph in 14.7 seconds.
These figures are due to the fact that RS Racingteam has ensured that the tuned M3 is also 190 kgs lighter than its factory version. RS Racingteam has also added a few other performance features to BMW M3. These include a full rollcage, front sports bucket seats and a 6 point harness. RS Racingteam has also ensured that stopping power is enhanced due to fitment of new racing brake pads and steel flex brake lines. The vehicle now sits on 19” ATS Superlight forged wheels and 10 way adjustable Bilstein suspension system.
BMW M3 comes in three options. The regular model is available for €80,000 ($106,800 or INR 76.36 lakhs) with performance enhancement while the racecar version is priced at €110,000 ($147,000 or INR 78.66 lakhs). Prices of the street-legal model have not yet been disclosed.
