The M3's come a long way from the four-banger featherweight it was in the eighties. The new GTS is the fastest, most powerful M3 ever, with its muscular 4.4-litre V8 producing an entertaining 450bhp. It costs around £103,000, which is quite a lot for a 3-series... so what, aside from groundshaking performance figures, are you getting for your money?

Well, you gt a full factory-installed rollcage for starters. You get functional aerodynamic addenda, artfully crafted in carbon-fibre. The interior is stripped out and fitted with race buckets and six-point harnesses. It weighs 350lb less than the standard M3, and gets to 62mph half a second quicker (in 4.4s). The windows are lightweight plastic and the exhaust is titanium. And just so everyone knows you're serious, it's an eyewatering shade of orange.

Sounds pretty good too, doesn't it?
