We live in the world of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions now, and we definitely need our fix of crazy tuning. Today, G-POWER came to the rescue by announcing that their stage two kit for the M3 has clocked an impressive 333.29 km/h (207.10 mph) at the recent Auto Motor und Sport High-Speed Test event in Italy.

This means that the BMW rocket blew away all but two of its rivals - osing out to cars producing 900 hp and 1,000 hp. To make the accomplishment seem even larger, the SK II “Sporty Drive” supercharger kit that has bumped V8 output to 570 horsepower only costs €11,500 in Europe. It’s like we’re falling in love with the M3 again.

The SK II kit also dials torque up to 565 Nm (417 lb-ft) on the M3 which is good for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of 4.4 seconds while the car reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.9 seconds.

“This abusive environment naturally separates automotive wheat from the chaff, because only those tuners who have carefully shepherded their design from development to production will survive the extreme loads in the “auto motor und sport” high-speed test in Nardò with no major engine damage. In addition, pushing the system to the top-speed limits in the real-world provides merciless feedback on the achieved performance improvements,” the official statement reads.

The M3 also gets from the tuner a GM3 RS coilover suspension, beefier brakes and Silverstone rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport road tires.

The car was driven by Christian Stober, Vice President and Technical Director at G-POWER, who jokingly described his joyride as “one of my best business trips ever…”
