The new BMW M4 GTS joins a family of exclusive BMW M3 Special Editions which have been setting the pace for 30 years. Production of the first BMW M3 (E30) got under way in 1986, establishing M on both the street and the track. The BMW M3 – and now the BMW M4 – has since set the benchmark in its segment throughout its lifespan and across every model generation.
The BMW M4 GTS is the first Special Edition M3 / M4 to be made available in the US market. Approximaterly 300 cars will be available to US customers with delivery starting in the second quarter of 2016.
With its powerful, motorsport-inspired looks and high-performance technology, the BMW M4 GTS has its sights set squarely on the race track.
Thanks to an innovative water injection system helping boost power to 493 hp and track ready chassis, this Special Edition M vehicle recorded a lap time of 7 minutes 28 seconds around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the world’s most challenging race circuit, making a clear statement about this model’s exceptional dynamic abilities.
BMW M GmbH will produce approximately 700 units of the BMW M4 GTS worldwide.
“Special Edition models sharpen the character of the BMW M brand and embody an emotionally rich and exclusive driving experience. We’ve taken a radical route with the set-up of the BMW M4 GTS to create a sports machine for the race track that delivers top-end dynamics and inspirational performance. It allows us to demonstrate what is possible today with a road-legal car. Owners can drive their BMW M4 GTS to circuits such as Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring or Laguna Seca – for clubsport events, for example – and then set lap times there that raise the bar to extremely high levels for road-legal cars.” says Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH.
