A hotter version of the BMW M4 Coupe, shop dubbed the M4 GTS, is finally here and it will be making its public debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
BMW is putting an end to spy shots and reports on its M4 GTS by officially pulling the wraps off its body. The model in question is being highlighted in the photo gallery posted below ahead of its public debut which will be taking place at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The high-performance mid-sized two-door vehicle is bringing an aggressive body kit, which includes the adjustable front splitter, the adjustable rear wing made from carbon fiber, a new hood, the carbon fiber diffuser and several other goodies which will be differentiating it from the standard car.
The BMW M4 GTS is also bringing the LED headlights, the OLED taillights, a first for a production vehicle, the titanium exhaust system and the M light-alloy wheels with an exclusive design, wrapped in the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The interior design is similar to the one of the standard M4 and it is bringing the carbon fiber bucket seats (M sports seats in North America) wrapped in Merino / Alcantara, the Alcantara wrapped sport steering wheel, the GFRP shelf and rear panel wrapped in Alcantara replacing the rear seat, the lightweight center console, revised door trim, new door handles, 3-point seatbelts and others.
The German based automaker says that future customers of the BMW M4 GTS will be able to order the Clubsport Package as well, which will be bringing the Acid Orange roll bar, a fire extinguisher an a six-point harness, for safer laps. The most important part of the model is definitely found under its hood, where a six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo 3.0 liter engine is resting. The unit is bringing the water injection technology and it is working together with a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission. The official power figures stand at 500 HP (368 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to these, the 1,510 kg (curb weight) model needs just 3.8 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and it will be reaching an electronically limited top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph).
Keep in mind that the standard BMW M4 Coupe is also bringing a 3.0 liter twin turbo six-cylinder engine, but this is rated at 430 HP (320 kW) and 550 Nm (410 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 3.9s with the automatic and 4.1s with the manual and top speed is electronically limited to 280 km/h (174 mph). Other goodies added to the car include the adjustable M coilover suspension system and the carbon ceramic brakes. BMW says that the brand new M4 GTS has actually managed to lap the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes and 28 seconds, compared to the regular M4 Coupe, which has done it in 7m and 52s. Only 700 units of the car will be produced but no pricing details are known so far.
