For everyone who thought that BMW’s M division is little lagging behind in the last few years, we present to you the new BMW “M4 GTS” which will hit the market next year. The 2017 BMW M4 GTS model is described as a exclusive technological masterpiece and fastest production car in the history of this company. One of the problem can be the fact that only 700 lucky ones will be able to enjoy in this car because it is limited. So let’s read what this amazing car had to offer to us.
Engine and specs
If we speak about powertrains the power comes from the famous 3.0-liter six-cylinder with the novelty of the system for water injection which not only increases strength, but also improves efficiency. The engine is able to produce 500 hp and 600 Nm of torque, and despite this increase in power, the manufacturer says that the fuel economy is unchanged if we compared it to the base model. Standard is a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The 2017 BMW M4 GTS can accelerate from 0-60 in just 3,7 seconds and its top speed is 189 mph.
The 2017 BMW M4 GTS is described as an outstanding example of engineering with which the potential of the standard model of BMW M4 raised to a higher level. Matt gray bodywork and great aerodynamic details such as accented air vents, profiled hood, adjustable front splitter, large carbon rear wing (set with the help of the aluminum bracket on tailgate from fiberglass), clearly indicate the potential of this car.
Of course there is also a carbon fiber rear diffuser, exhaust system made of titanium and exclusive M rims on which are fitted Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Finally there are the LED headlights and taillights OLED, which present a true technological breakthrough among production cars. All in all, this great sport car looks like it is on steroids.
The interior of the car is mostly identical to that in the standard M4 model, but with the addition of steering wheel upholstered with Alcantara and carbon fiber bucket seats, upholstered in Alcantara and leather Merino. The company was working hard in order to reduce weight and M4 GTS has a simple central console and tape instead of to handle, and it remains without rear seats. M4 GTS also has a special suspension system that has three operating settings, from comfortable city, to the uncompromising fashion intended for the racetrack. There are also carbon-ceramic brakes, which will most appreciate the fans of Track Day event, when the discs are constantly exposed to large temperature stresses!
BMW has also released a special Clubsport package for M4 GTS in a limited series, with no additional cost, which includes safety “cage” made of steel pipes, mounted behind the front seats, safety belts in “six-point” and also racing “tubs “of carbon fibers that provide minimal movement of the body, even in the most extreme driving. Just in case, there is a fire extinguisher, centrally located just behind the front seats.
2017 BMW M4 GTS release date and price
