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.

I love the green graphics of this one! It looks cool on that. Moreover, it’s a good thing that it has a powerful V8 engine, but I wonder if what will be the output of it? Well, I hope that it is impressive also.

It looks cool with its green and black graphics, and it also give some aggressive look on it. By the way, I think that its V8 engine is already quite good enough on this.

The green graphic of this BMW M3 is so perfect on it and only adds more angst on this race car. I’m also quite satisfied on its engine, but I think it is better if they use a V10 engine on it.

Its body kit looks so perfect on this M3, especially its color combination. Furthermore, I’m glad that they use a nice engine for this race car which I’m hoping that could deliver an awesome output.

It sounds so great to know that they do some list for its performance modification! smiley Well, I will surely be looking forward to knowing that! Anyway, I love the exterior changes of it, looks so cool!

Its V8 engine is kind of impressive but not great for the fact that it is a race car. I think they should have boosted it more. Anyway, I must say that it is already looks great on its aesthetic design.

Its simple graphic design is really looks so cool on it. Furthermore, I must say that the over-all feature that this car had been absolutely very impressive and even with its engine specification.

The simplicity of its design, makes this BMW more appealing. Well, its LED angel eyes absolutely look so awesome on it, but I wonder if it had a safety feature? I hope it really has.

I want to see the speed performance of this race car. I hope they also announced if when will they road test this one. Anyway, the mineral white painted on this one is absolutely looks so good on it.

V8 engine is quite impressive but not for a sports car like this. Furthermore, the mineral white paint finish of this BMW M3 absolutely looks great on it.

Its V8 engine is somewhat impressive but not too powerful enough to beat its competitor. Anyway, I have to agree that this one, is already looking great on its simple design and detailing.

I love the side grills that they added on this race car! It looks so lovely on that and the aesthetic design of it, is very striking on this one, and I think the engine of this one, is only enough for it.

The simplicity of the design here in BMW M3 GTS-V is kind of impressive on this race car, but I hope they also include some pictures of its interior, but still I’m glad that it had a powerful engine.
