Video: M3 GTS hits the track

BMW takes its lightweight, hotted-up CSL successor for a spin round the circuit

If, for some inexplicable reason you weren't excited by BMW's announcement last week of the M3 GTS - the spiritual successor to the lightweight, hardcore CSL - we have just the tonic.

Here's a quick video of the GTS spinning on its SEMA show stand - and, more importantly, spinning around a desolate track in full oversteer mode.

For a sticky-tyred, track-ready super saloon, it looks... rather slidey. That'll be the effect of 450bhp charging through the rear tyres, then.

If this quick clip has whetted your appetite for GTS action, follow this link over to YouTube for a proper four-minute video of the ultimate M3. Loving your slow motion work, guys... 

Now share it...
