GALLERY: BMW M4 GTS – with E30, E36, E46, E92 M3s

BMW has just released a mega gallery of its exclusive BMW M4 GTS along with galleries of the model’s predecessors — the E30 M3 Sport Evolution, E36 M3 GT, E46 M3 CSL and E92 M3 GTS.

To recap, the new BMW M4 GTS was first revealed in August last year, made to commemorate the M3’s 30th anniversary — the performance model which first appeared in 1986. Just 700 examples of the BMW M4 GTS will ever be produced, so best hurry along and book yours as soon as you can.

A showcase of the BMW M division’s technical masterclass, the GTS is powered by a 3.0 litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine with the brand’s innovative water-injection technology. The latter boosts the standard M4’s 431 hp and 550 Nm output to 500 hp and 600 Nm in the GTS.

The M4 GTS goes from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 305 km/h. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M DCT dual-clutch auto transmission. Showing off this performance, BMW had previously released a video of the M4 GTS setting a lap time of seven minutes, 28 seconds around the Nordschleife — quicker than the Ferrari 458 Italia and McLaren MP4-12C, even.

But of course, it’s not just power that makes the M4 GTS what it is. The car is significantly lighter than the standard production model, weighing just 1,510 kg at the kerb. The rigorous weight-saving measures include a new carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) bonnet, roof, boot lid, rear wing and more.

Each GTS also features carbon-fibre bucket seats, an adjustable front splitter and rear wing, three-way M coilover adjustable suspension, M carbon ceramic brakes and a titanium muffler, to name a few key items. Exclusive M light-alloy wheels in star-spoke 666 M Styling in Acid Orange paint are featured, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres which have been adapted specifically for the car.

“We’ve taken a radical route with the set-up of the BMW M4 GTS to create a sports machine for the race track that delivers top-end dynamics and inspirational performance,” said Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH. “It allows us to demonstrate what is possible today with a road-legal car. Owners can drive their BMW M4 GTS to circuits such as Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring or Laguna Seca and then set lap times there that raise the bar to extremely high levels for road-legal cars.”
