G-Power Will Supercharge Your BMW M3 To 501 PS For Just €2,999

Eleven years ago, when the first BMW M3 E92 rolled off the assembly line with 420PS (414hp) and 400Nm (295lb-ft) of torque delivered by its naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8, it was something truly magnificent.

Nowadays, though, that’s about the same as a mega hatch, which delivers a similar output from half the engine size. So, as cool as it might be to own the only V8-powered M3 ever, it certainly can’t keep up with newer sports car.

G-Power, for one, will bump the output of your M3 E9X to 501 PS (493hp / 368kW) with a supercharger system. The upgrade, which is part of a ’35 Years Edition’ anniversary series, is said to improve the response of the engine, and it’s not insanely expensive either, as it costs €2,999 (equal to $3,700).

Watch: BMW M3 GTS Fished From A Pond Like A Koi

This isn’t the tuner’s first foray into the M3 E90/E92/E93 (Sedan, Coupe, Convertible) family, as they previously took the V8 to incredible heights. The most impressive upgrade turns the car into a supercar slayer, with a mind-blowing 720PS (710hp / 530kW) and 650Nm (479lb-ft) of torque, but the modification costs almost the same as a new BMW 4-Series Coupe in Germany at €39,950 ($49,302).

For a much more reasonable €8,999 ($11,106), G-Power will turn your BMW M3 into a 630PS (621hp / 463kW) and 590Nm (435lb-ft) of torque, beast. And with the extra cash, you could buy a new 2-Series Coupe, which can be had from as low as €30,300 ($37,393) in its home market.

    This is an engine that already blows itself apart (rod bearings, etc) in stock form and now they supercharge it? Have they done anything to remedy the known issues?
