2015 Tokyo Motor Show: BMW M4 GTS Officially Launched
The BMW M4 GTS was unveiled online about a month ago and now the carmaker has officially presented the M4`s hardcore version at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
As previously discussed, the BMW M4 GTS will be built in a limited edition of just 700 units, out of which 300 will head to the United States, where it will have a base price of $160,000. In Germany the model is already available from 142,600 euros. It will be the main competitor of the Porsche 911 GT3, coming with rather the same pricing tag and performance under the hood.
From a visual standpoint, the BMW M4 GTS will be available in four colors, the Sapphire Black Metallic, Frozen Dark Grey Metallic, Mineral Grey Metallic and the Alpine White. The carbon fiber body style will feature adaptive LED headlights, OLED taillights, revised and more aggressive front and rear bumpers and so on. The overall design is complemented by the 19- and 20-inch front and rear alloy wheels, all four wearing the high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubbers.
Inside, the model will wear the M signature on the door sills, footrest, gearshift lever, sports steering wheel, along with the the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim.
In the engine department, the BMW M4 GTS will fit a 3.0-liter flat-six engine with water injection technology, the same one seen on the BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car. The engine develops 500 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, at a topping of a limited 305 km/h.
