BMW has unveiled the new M4 GTS, a technical masterpiece that features the first water injection system in a production vehicle.

With its powerful, motorsport-inspired looks and high-performance technology, the BMW M4 GTS has its sights set squarely on the race track. This Special Edition M vehicle recorded a lap time of 7 minutes 28 seconds around the legendary Nurburgring-Nordschleife, the world's most challenging race circuit, making a clear statement about this model's exceptional dynamic abilities.

BMW M GmbH is launching the BMW M4 GTS in a special edition limited to 700 units worldwide, with 300 units of this high-performance Special Edition M4 available for the first time in the US market.

"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 Nurburgring 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.

M4 GTS: Exterior Design

Viewed from the front, the visual features that stand out the most are its muscular contours and the prominent three-dimensionality of its lines, which lend it a particularly expressive face.

Needless to say, the BMW M4 GTS also features the striking M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style and hallmark powerdome on the hood. The carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) hood is painted in body color and features a large air outlet. Thanks to the use of CFRP, the hood weighs 25 percent less than an aluminum equivalent, which helps both to lower the car's center of gravity and further improve the balance of weight between the front and rear axle.

The back end of the BMW M4 GTS can be distinguished clearly from that of the BMW M4 Coupe. On the trunk lid, for example, an adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing resting on intricate, CNC-machined aluminum struts provides a head-turning design feature. The rear wing can be adjusted through three positions - one for road driving and two others that can be selected according to individual preference on the track. Identifying features of the BMW M4 include the flared rear wheel arches which, together with the car's wide track, underline its confident appearance.

The double-chamber exhaust system, with its two pairs of tailpipes, is another signature BMW M feature. Here, the titanium tailpipes - with their 80-millimeter diameter and laser-engraved M logo - are another reference to the standalone character of the BMW M4 GTS. They are framed by a clearly structured rear apron and flank the exposed carbon-fiber diffuser. The diffuser forms a single aerodynamic unit with the rear wing and front splitter, which is likewise made from carbon fiber. They work together to optimize airflow and, in so doing, improve downforce and roadholding.

Four color shades are available for the exterior paintwork. Customers can also choose from Sapphire Black metallic, Mineral Grey metallic, Alpine White and Frozen Dark Grey Metallic paint finish.
