More pictures of Rossi at the wheel of the M3 GTS

We’ve found a few more pictures of the new M3 GTS in the hands of 9-times Moto GP champion, Valentino Rossi.

If you remember, Valle was presented with an M3 Saloon at the final round in Valencia for being the most successful qualifier of the 2009 Moto GP season. BMW has been the exclusive provider of safety and shuttle vehicles for the Moto GP since 1999, so naturally they sent along their latest star, the M3 GTS for this end of season event.

After being given the opportunity to drive the M3 GTS around the circuit, Rossi made it very clear to Thomas Schmera, BMW M GmbH Head of Sales and Marketing, that he wanted one for himself.

I can’t exactly blame him, but somehow I suspect my request will be receiving slightly less attention from BMW than Valentino’s.
