BMW insider Scott26 is reporting that BMW is currently working on some special packages/editions for the E92 M3 coupe before it bows out in 2013. In the works is a lightweight (CRT type) package for the E92 M3 coupe which will feature some of the key details of the M3 CRT sedan such as the carbon fiber hood and special seats. It’s not known whether such a package/model will be homologated for the US market.

BMW is however considering some sort of updated Competition Package for the US.

Check out our first delivered Frozen Silver BMW M3 Competition Edition coupe. The lucky new owner is M3POST’s PNWM3.

The 2012 M3 Competition Edition featuring Frozen Silver exterior paint and other enhancements was produced to honor the 40 years since the founding of BMW M in 1972.

Any M3 GTS fans out there? If you are, you’ll be sure to love this video of six M3 GTS and a supercharged G-Power M3 GTS running at the Nurburgring.

The limited edition M3 GTS, which was available only in Europe, featured 450bhp, with a weight of 3278lbs.

The G-Power M3 GTS adds forced induction to the factory GTS via a supercharger. The regular version pumps out 635hp / 630Nm torque, while the Tornado RS version is good for a 720hp and 700Nm of torque!

The first turbo E90/E92 M3 build that we know of is underway. There are currently several supercharger kits for the M3′s S65 motor available on the market, but no turbo kits, yet. The S65 makes it difficult to place a turbocharger kit’s plumbing, and some tuners are also wary of turbocharging the S65 due to its aluminum construction.

But, South African tuning shop SAVSPEED has taken up the cause and its S65 turbo build is currently in the works. They’ve decided on a single turbo setup. As plumbing is difficult in the S65 engine compartment, a custom engine mount had to be designed. SAVSPEED has already run the turbo’d E92 M3 for 140km on the dyno and all is going well. … CONTINUED
