G-Power Celebrates BMW Nürburgring Win With M3 Clubsport Models

Timed perfectly to coincide with BMW’s 24Hours of Nürburgring win, G-Power has announced two special edition M3 Clubsport models.

Both the Tornado CS and GT2 S – the Tornado is the more subdued of the two – get G-Power’s SK II CS supercharger system, lightened wheels, and a “Clubsport” coilover system.

Both cars crank out 600 horsepower and 580 Nm of torque, resulting in a theoretical top speed of over 320 km/h with a six-speed (330 km/h with the 7-speed DCT).

The GT2 S, G-Power Motorsport’s first official vehicle, is a turn-key racer costing a princely €139,495 before taxes. It’s aimed at consumers looking for a BMW version of Porsche’s GT3 RS (and who decided the M3 GTS is a bit bland).

You may notice that the GT2 S looks a little different than the usual M3. It’s wearing a GT2-inspired carbon fiber body kit. After that, swap front passenger seats with carbon buckets, kill the rear seat altogether, and factor in all the other little bits: it ends up cutting vehicle weight down by a huge 150 kg.

On the cheaper side of the pair, to transform an M3 into a Tornado CS all that’s needed is €10,800. That includes the supercharger setup, new intakes, titanium exhaust, installation and tuning. Extra-cost dress-up bits include a trunk lip spoiler and rear diffuser with integrated running light; inside are bucket seats inherited from the GT2 S.

Scroll down for a look at of some of the key stats.
