Weighing in at 3483-pounds, the BMW M3 CRT (Carbon Racing Technologies) features a “V8 engine with customary M high-revving characteristics and maximum output of 331 kW/450 hp, accelerating it from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds.” It’s set to be mass produced in 2013.

The low-weight construction of the BMW M3 CRT is enhanced by sound-proofing configured specially for the new variant and a sports exhaust system with an extremely lightweight titanium muffler. Also unique to the CRT are the two individual rear seats, which take their cues from the lateral support-enhancing contours of the front seats.
