BMW’s New Hardcore M4 GTS Parades Its Muscles In Tokyo

The new M4 GTS is the latest in a long line of track-friendly BMW models such as the 1995 M3 GT, 2003 M3 CLS and 2010 M3 GTS.  BMW’s New Hardcore M4 GTS Parades Its Muscles In Tokyo

It might not be the prettiest car to look at, especially with those near-tacky acid orange accents, but BMW has infused the GTS version of the M4 with motor sport genes that include a stripped out, two-seater interior with the no-cost option of a roll cage and improved aerodynamics through the use of wings and spoilers.

One of the biggest highlights of the car is the addition of a new water injection system on the 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six, which lowers the final compression temperature in the combustion chamber allowing a higher boost pressure for better performance.

You will have to fill it up with water every once in a while, but that’s a small inconvenience for the 60hp and 50Nm boost over the regular M4 at 493hp (500PS) at 6,250 rpm and 442 lb-ft (600Nm) of peak torque between 4,000 and 5,000 rpm respectively.

Like so many other new track-focused models these days, the GTS is available exclusively with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that gets it to 60mph in 3.7 seconds or to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds, and on to a top speed of 190mph or 305km/h. BMW says it’s the quickest production car it has ever made, running the Nürburgring track nearly 30 seconds faster than the standard M4 at 7 minutes and 28 seconds.

Only 700 will be made, but at least this time, this special Bimmer will be sold in the States. By: carscoops
