Last month, BMW announced it will celebrate the success at the latest Nurburgring 24 hours race with a special edition M3 GTS-R. Today Left Lane News comes with the first rendering of the future sports car. The official debut is expected to be made in September at the Paris Auto Show.

Compared to a standard M3 GTS, the R version will focus on reducing weight. For that BMW will use a carbon fiber hood, roof and trunk panels so that the total weight will go down to 3200 lbs. As for the engine, BMW plans to obtain more HP from the current V8 and will be matching it to a DCT transmission.

We have to admit that the Stealth Frozen matte black paint job looks a lot better than the standard orange used in the GTS. The picture of automotive bliss can also be found in the matching wheels. Nice!

Well, It seems they focused on reducing its weight because all of the information of this BMW M3 GTS-R concerned about it. I guess this BMW M3 GTS-R is now ready for racing.
