BMW M4 GTS Gets Reviewed on Track for Your Viewing and Hearing Pleasure
This video may explain why the M4 GTS sold out so fast despite its heavy price tag
BMW 3.0 CSL, E46 M3 CSL, E92 M3 GTS, and now the F82 M4 GTS. The latest in a glorious line of lightweight specials from BMW M is a track-focused weapon that costs twice as much as the car it’s based on despite being stripped of “non-essential” things like the back seat.
Limited at 700 units globally, the M4 GTS debuted the BMW’s water injection technology and the OLED (Organic Lights with LED) taillights. But enthusiasts will definitely care more about performance than these new gimmicks.
80 kg (176 lbs) lighter than the regular M4 Coupé, the M4 GTS is also significantly more powerful. The 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine produces 500 PS (493 hp) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque in the M4 GTS compared to 431 PS (425 hp) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) in the standard M4.
This translates into staggering performance figures. 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 3.8 seconds and top speed is an unlimited 305 km/h (190 mph). What matters more, though, is how the car makes the driver feel. Well, you shouldn’t worry about that, as the folks from Carfection had the chance to drive it on the track and found it as hardcore as a limited-run BMW M model can get.
Watch the video and make sure the volume is up because you don't want to miss the brutal sound the force-fed straight-six engine pushes through the M4 GTS' titanium exhaust system.
