Weighs 190 kg (419 lbs) less than the standard model

RS-Racingteam has introduced a new tuning program for the BMW M3.

Designed to deliver "more adrenaline for your senses," the RS-M3 is a track-focused model that features an adjustable sports suspension, a rear spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels.

While the exterior is fairly restrained, the cabin loses the rear seat, carpeting and door pads. RS Racing then adds a roll cage, carbon fiber door panels and sports seats with six-point harnesses. Thanks to these modifications, the RS-M3 weighs 190 kg (419 lbs) less than the standard model.

Under the hood, the 4.0-liter V8 engine has been tuned to produce 450 HP (331 kW) and 431 Nm (318 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 14.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph).

The RS-M3 is currently available and pricing starts at €80,000 ($106,760).



The in-house sport model of the 3-series, named M3, offers BMW since 1986
now. Developed and also originally produced (E 30 and E36 M3) by
BMW-subsidiary BMW M GmbH, the variants of the 3-series model leaves the
assembly lines of the parent company again. Their proverbial power creates
everywhere a furore.

On the flags of RS-RACINGTEAM Company, based in Viernheim, in southern
Hessen (near Mannheim) the conspicuous letters stand: MORE ADRENALINE FOR
YOUR SENSES. Motivation enough for the Crew around Sven Rau and Sonja
Grüter, to tackle courageously the Bavarian racing driving machine with road
traffic certification. Under the label „RS-M3“ – this designation is
incidentally the ownership of the Company RS-RACINGTEAM – M-race car, only
available as a Coupé, arise a special sort.

In the present case, wide-awake 450 hp or 331 kW at 8.300 U/min are made
available from four litres of cylinder capacity – from 3.999 cm³, to be
precise, whereby a maximum torque of 431 Nm at 4.100 U/min is applied. As
the electronic Vmax-handcuffs are blown up, the proband runs up to 299 km/h.
With only two seats the sprint from standstill of 100 km/h in 4,6 seconds is
completed and 200 km/h-barrier falls in 14,7 seconds. The vehicle is in
addition 190 Kg lighter than the standard counterpart!

The interior of BMW RS-M3 is thereby strongly marked by DMSB-certified
safety cell of WIECHERS Sport, which was completely welded. The entry due to
the cage bars is visibly less easy than before, but it offers the passengers
of the BMW RS-M3 excellent protection and increases immensely the body of
the vehicle. Two certified hard shell seats provide space for two passengers
and renewing protection due to 6-Punkt-point belt. Brake pads and air flow
from motorsport, as well as steel flex brake lines provide adequate delay in
adrenaline of speed.

The important connection between vehicle and road consists in this case of
forged ATS-Superlight-wheels in size 10x19 inch all around, including sport
A particularly large share in the success of the BMW RS-M3 is exclusively
manufactured chassis of BMW RS-M3 supplied by the Company Bilstein. Bilstein
B16 PSS10 was developed in sophisticated cooperation, because no comparable
model with 10-fold adjustability could provide MOT approval.

Values, which are crying out for the race track, where it can play fully its
modified abilities. It can be blazingly fast even on the way there, thanks
to the aforementioned MOT approval.
The sporty as well as uncompromising overall concept of RS-RACINGTEAM is in
any case convincing. The BMW RS-M3 can be purchased in Viernheim as a new
car with individual performance conversion from 80.000 Euros. For up to
110.000 Euros a thoroughbred race car, also street legal is avalaible!
