Valentino Rossi takes BMW M3 GTS out on the track, receives brand new M3 |

I’m sure pretty much anyone familiar with racing knows about Valentino Rossi, the phenomenal driver which managed to attain a record-breaking nine championship titles in the Moto GP competition.

But he has also proven, many times, that he is quite adept at controlling vehicles with four wheels, not just two. As such, in honor of him becoming the fastest pilot in the qualifying sessions, BMW, a sponsor of Moto GP, offered him a new M3 model.

But before he got the keys to the performance car, he got a taste of the track-oriented M3 GTS model, which was revealed a few weeks ago. It’s safe to say that a performance enthusiast like Rossi was thrilled (just look at his face in the picture), and he immediately declared that he wants one of the first models which roll off the assembly line next year.

Be sure that BMW will continue promoting the GTS before its official debut on the market next year.
