The strongest BMW M3 GTS is now even stronger and more efficient – improved G-POWER GTS SK II GTS „Sporty Drive' TÚ supercharger system with now 650 hp

Similar to the BMW AG G-POWER, the number one in supercharging, has performed a complex program for the G-POWER M3 supercharger systems to increase its efficiency. The result shows the long-standing experience and the technical expertise of the G-POWER engineering department. Next to the three supercharger systems SK I, SK II and SK II CS for the standard BMW M3, the system for the BMW M3 GTS has now been modified in the course of the G-POWER „Efficiency Program'. 2013 G-Power GTS SK II GTS

Nomen est omen. The 'TÚ' in the name of the G-POWER SK II 'Sporty Drive' TÚ supercharger systems is standing for 'technical update' and it indicates that the well-known and proven G-POWER M3 supercharger systems are available with a technical optimized 2013 version. Following the systems for the standard BMW M3's the system for the BMW M3 GTS has now been updated, too. The revisions have been made in order to enhance the power output, to simplify the system's installation and are the results of a continuous quality improvement process.

2013 G-Power GTS SK II GTS
The product launch has been preceded by extensive CAD engineering, complemented with virtual computational fluid dynamics analysis (CFD analysis) and intensive test driving. All components of the air intake and the fuel supply system have been developed from scratch or extensively revised based on our many years of experience. The modified air intake is now housing a larger racing air filter that provides for an enlarged air mass flow and at the same time is more durable and dust resistant. The additional air mass, that is provided by the new air intake, allows the use of the ASA T1-523 supercharger compared to the ASA T1-522 supercharger used until now. An additional fuel pump system with ECÚ for a map controlled activation completes the modification of the hardware. Moreover, thanks to the complete redevelopment of the air intake, its overall part count has been optimized, further simplifying the installation of the M3 'Sporty Drive' TÚ supercharger system. The modification of the standard ECÚ software to the new parameters of the forced induction has been completely reworked and optimized in the course of the upgrade process and is now based on the latest software version of BMW.


In the end the output is now increased by an additional 15 hp compared to the existing output enhancement.

More important to the customer than the naked figures, however, is the power delivery – i.e. the experience generated by the additional output. The key here is the term 'Sporty Drive'. In the specification for every tuning program undertaken by G-POWER, this aspect is afforded the same priority as the target power increase itself.

The very first thing you notice behind the wheel of a BMW M3 GTS with a G-POWER 'Sporty Drive' TÚ supercharger system is the extremely sporty throttle response. Every input from the gas pedal is translated immediately into forward propulsion, without the lag usually associated even with modern turbocharged engines. The driver's command is proportionally and instantaneously implemented. One further characteristic of mechanical supercharging using the ASA radial supercharger is the outstanding torque in the middle of the rev range, which is particularly impressive during overtaking manoeuvres. This lively response from mid-range revs increases continuously until engine speed peaks, which is also where maximum boost pressure is achieved. The acceleration experience is akin to being fired from a catapult.

Vital Stats and Specifications

Engine : 8-cylinder

7-speed Manual
In sheer numbers: the standard sprints from 0-100 km/h and 0-200 km/h are completed in 4.1s and 11.8s. Even more impressive: from 100 km/h to 200 km/h it takes the G-POWER M3 GTS 2.2s less than the standard M3 GTS. Top speed is 323 km/h.


Of course the negative acceleration is in the focus of G-POWER, as well. The G-POWER braking system with six respectively four brake pistons bytes into mighty up to 396 mm in diameter Ceramic-Carbon brake discs. The high performance braking system for the G-POWER M3 GTS has been exclusively designed together with Mov'it according to the specifications of G-POWER in order to match the performance and top speed of the G-POWER M3 GTS. With this set-up, the G-POWER braking system always provides maximum brake force and the braking point remains precise in any case. In addition the G-POWER ceramic braking system reduces the unsprung mass by 50% percent, compared to a system with steel brake discs. Accordingly the cornering and road handling is improved significantly.

In order to ensure that this extra power is delivered safely to the road, G-POWER recommends a combination of the G-POWER 20-inch SILVERSTONE CS wheel set with Michelin tyres measuring 255/30 ZR 20 on the front and 295/25 ZR 20 on the rear axle.

Further modifications to the series-production suspension of the BMW M3 GTS were not undertaken, as the standard M-GmbH setup already guarantees perfect balance and race-ready handling. It was only the shortage of power that was preventing faster lap times. With 650 hp, the hunt for lap time records is now on.

The price for the 650 hp strong G-POWER GTS SK II „Sporty Drive' TÚ supercharger system for the BMW M3 GTS is € 23.500,00 (net) plus installation. The G-POWER 20 inch SILVERSTONE CS forged wheel set is € 7.437,00 (net) and the G-POWER ceramic breaking system for the front axle is € 14.460,00 (net), respectively € 11.778,00 (net) for the rear axle.

- fastest saloon car with the 750 hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RS, delivering a top speed of 367,4 km/h being driven at the highspeed-oval of Papenburg. This top speed was furthermore topped with the 800 hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RR, delivering a top speed of 372 km/h

- fastest 4-seat coupé with the 750 hp G-POWER M6 HÚRRICANE CS, delivering a top speed of more than 370 km/h

- fastest station wagon with the 750 hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRCANE RS Touring, delivering a (limited) top speed of 360 km/h

The story of an exception: the BMW M3 is 25.

The anticipation began in August 1985. That summer Germanys automobile magazines built up their readers expectations for the fastest 3 Series BMW of all times. The key data revealed a sports car that would punch way above its class 200 hp, top speed in excess of 230 kmh, sprint from a standing start to 100 kmh inside 6.7 seconds. However, the story was that the most dynamic BMW 3 Series drivers....

The Champion in Touring Car Racing. 25 years ago the BMW M3 started its unique series of victories.

In August 1985, a rumour surfaced in motor magazine Auto-Deutschland which emanated from a new sports car. An A Group Car from BMW that was a thoroughbred racing car according to the rules but was also to be produced in a version licensed to drive on open roads for everyday use. Speculation about this dream car that could take to normal roads and was intended for the Most dynamic among BMW 3 Series....
