A new video of the BMW M4 GTS nailing a hot lap around the Nordschleife, managing a blistering time of 7:27.88, has come about. Believe it or not, that puts the BMW ahead of the Ferrari 458 Italia and the McLaren MP4-12C in the list of all-time quickest cars at the Nurburgring.

BMW has long claimed the lap time, but it isn’t until now that we get to see the lap itself. Driven to perfection by BMW M engineer, Joerg Weidinger, he is also the man responsible for the commentary in the clip above.

Featuring a 3.0 litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder petrol engine from a regular M4/M3 and water injection technology, the M4 GTS delivers 500 hp and 600 Nm of torque. It is capable of performing the century sprint in 3.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 305 km/h.

Malaysians were lucky enough to be among one of the first people to set eyes on the impressive Concept M4 GTS when the car made its way here only a month after its public debut at the Pebble Beach event in August 2015. And as we later discovered, the Concept turned out to be a mirror-image of the production model itself.

Production of the M4 GTS has been limited to just 700 units, and we understand that all of them have already been accounted for. Each car features a performance-boosting carbon-fibre bonnet, roof and buckets seats, an adjustable front splitter and rear wing, a three-way M coilover adjustable suspension and M carbon ceramic brakes to name a few items

You can check out the BMW M4 GTS in full detail over in our launch report of the car. Likewise, you can also check out our full gallery of the Concept M4 GTS that was briefly in Malaysia.
