We would normally throw in a synopsis but that’s not needed for this fresh video by BMW. It features the new BMW M4 GTS that was announced yesterday, and two units of M division’s carbon-rich 700-unit limited edition tear up the track in perfect rhythm. It’s porn of the automotive variety.

A carbon copy of the Concept M4 GTS, the production car is the spiritual successor to specials like the BMW M3 GT, BMW M3 CSL, BMW M3 GTS and BMW M3 CRT, even if there’s no more ‘3’ in the name. Rich with carbon fibre in and out, the M4 GTS weighs in at just 1,510 kg.

It’s powered by the M3/M4’s 3.0 litre turbo inline six engine with a water injection technology tested by the 2015 MotoGP Safety Car. Output has been raised from 431 hp and 550 Nm to 500 hp and 600 Nm, which is good for 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and a limited top speed of 305 km/h. Power goes to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M DCT dual-clutch gearbox.

The M4 GTS is made for the track, and BMW is very proud of its Nürburgring lap time of 7.28 minutes. Keeping it on tarmac are three-way M coilover adjustable suspension, M carbon ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. An optional Clubsport Package includes a roll bar, race-spec six-point harness and fire extinguisher.

Another unique element is the OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) tail lamps, making their series-production debut here. Previewed by the M4 Concept Iconic Lights from CES 2015, OLEDs are just 1.4 mm in height and light up over their full surface with a very homogeneous effect. That allows for elaborate designs such as the M4 GTS’ “fish scales”.
