In spring 1995, BMW M GmbH introduced a rather special version when it launched a strictly limited edition as the BMW M3 GT Coupe for homologation. BMW M3 GT Coupe was produced only in a limited edition of 350 cars.
BMW M3 GT Coupe was intended to compete on the race track in the IMSA GT Series in the USA. The appeal of this car was for drivers who wanted their BMW M3 to display even more bite. The already generous power was again raised. The upgraded 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine now packed 217 kW/295 hp and accelerated the BMW M3 GT to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds.
The aerodynamic design of the vehicle was also revised and now boasted striking spoilers at front and rear. The really special feature was that the angle of the front spoiler could be adjusted by the driver. The special version could only be purchased in the colour British Racing Green.
As far as equipment was concerned, the BMW M3 GT Coupe was a genuine benchmark. Two airbags were included as standard together with sports seats in Nappa leather and carbon-fibre interior trims. In Germany, the price of the BMW M3 GT Coupe was DM 91,000.
