2011 BMW M3 GTS


Alright, we’ve got some fantastic news for you today. BMW has officially announced the M3 GTS track ready model. As you can see by the image, this car is just beast like. I think most can agree that the regular M3 is already an achievement in all areas of automotive performance and styling but the GTS takes all those attributes up to a new level.

So let’s get to the goodies shall we. First up, weight. This probably one of the major benefits. The GTS has shed 190kg of body fat which brings its weight down to 1490kg. It was basically able to achieve this by putting in some lighter seats and getting rid of all those non nessecary option like insulation, air conditioning, radio. The only 2 things that have actually been added to this car is a roll cage and fire extinguisher. You know, just in case you go so fast, you catch on fire!

On to the numbers! The GTS has also increased the M3’s V8 engine output to 450hp and that’s naturally aspirated!  Last but not least, when you pull the switch and open that hood, you’ll now be staring at a 4.4L engine instead of the standard 4L. Come on, pull your jaw back up now.

When it comes to the exterior the changes are quite noticeable. You are probably drooling over the black 19’s, the new front spoiler or the black simple wing in the back. Which ever one is one your mind, we agree. They’re all brilliant.

Final order of business of course is the price tag. Let’s talk turkey. If you want this wolf in wolf’s clothing, you’ll have to shell out around $185,000CAD to have it waiting for you in your garage.

All things considered, the price could be worse!

John Pangilinan’s Take on The Scion TC

Scion TC Main

I remember when the Scion TC first came out. They didn’t have it in Canada but I always loved that car. The look was great and the performance was supposedly up to par. I wanted it for my first car but seeing how it wasn’t in Canada, I had to settle for the Mazda 3. I always knew the TC had a lot of potential, someone just had to bring it out. John Pangilinan is the guy who did it just right in my opinion and with his reputation it’s no surprise. Scion had offered John $15,000 to put his charm on the TC for their SEMA booth. 

My Thoughts: I absolutely love it, I think Pangilinan did a really great job on the TC. The widebody kit looks spectacular. The wheels; well I probably would of chosen different wheels but thats a matter of taste as well. Also the spoiler looks great on the car, without it I think there would be something missing. What can I say I’m big fan. 

Thumbs up on this one!
