American tuning company, Vorsteiner, has traveled across the pond to attend the 2011 SEMA Auto Show and they brought a modded BMW M3 right along with them.
The "GTS-V" program on the M3 includes a comprehensive list of aerodynamic and performance modifications, which Vorsteiner added to the BMW sports car with plenty of help from some of its tuning friends, including EAS, Macht Schnell, Volk Racing, Akrapovic, MXP, and Hankook.
The M3 GTS-V was given a Mineral White paint finish with matching gray, black, and green graphics. There’s also a new carbon front spoiler and carbon rear diffuser from Vorsteiner, as well as new Version 4.0 LED Angel Eyes courtesy of AiB. From there, new BMW Edition Black chrome kidneys and side gills were also added, as well as Mineral White Painted Reflectors from IND. The set-up and handling of the BMW M3 was also improved, thanks to a new KW Adjustable Spring Sleeve Kit that was installed to increase the coupe’s suspension stability. Rounding out the exterior changes are a new set of 18" Volk Racing TE37 wheels wrapped around Hankook RS-3 tires with Brembo GT-R brakes and a TPMS module from Macht Schnell.
Inside this raging sports car comes plenty of interior enhancements, proving that this whole program is as comprehensive as it can get. The standard seats on the M3 were removed in favor of a pair of Recaro x ASM RS-G Limited Blue Seats while new side brackets and polished floor mounts were installed by Macht Schnell.
Under the hood of the BMW M3 lies a 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 420 horsepower. But thanks to a Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake Charge Kit, you can expect that output to be increased significantly.
