BMW has just unleashed the ravishing M4 GTS, a new Bimmer that takes performance to a whole different level. Featuring an aggressive aerodynamic body-kit, the GTS benefits from an adjustable front splitter, a sporty new bonnet as well as an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing and a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic trunk lid.
The special BMW M4 GTS also features a carbon fiber diffuser, a titanium exhaust system and exclusive M light-alloys complemented by Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Add-in the LED headlights and OLED taillights – a first for a production vehicle, by the way – and you’ve got yourselves one appealing and menacing-looking vehicle.
Inside the cabin, this M4 comes with an Alcantara-wrapped sport steering wheel and carbon-fiber bucket seats. The upholstery is all exclusive Alcantara/Merino leather, while the three-point seat belts, a lightweight center console and the revised door trim with pull loops remind you this is a performance-oriented car.
As such, the rear seats have been replaced by a glass-fiber-reinforced plastic shelf and a rear panel.
If you’re a bit on the picky side, please note that you may also opt out for a Clubsport Package. This means your BMW would feature an Acid Orange roll bar, a six-point harness as well as a fire extinguisher. And speaking of performance, a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine, with water injection technology, is what this ride is hiding under its bonnet.
Good for around 500 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, the engine has been connected to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, which allows for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of merely 3.8 seconds as well as a top speed of 305 km/h or about 189.5 mph.
If speed is what you’re all about, you should know that the M4 GTS managed to lap the Nürburgring in an impressive 7.28 minutes – which is why carbon ceramic brakes and an adjustable M coilover suspension are a must. Did I mention that only 700 of these will see the light of day?
