BMW Motorsport returns to do his thing and presents the GTS BMW M4 . Sports acronyms become the previous generation M3 coupe left behind, and does so with a model and serial completely obvious to a prototype to show us like long ago. This is the sports more radical that BMW now has in its ranks.
born with acronym GTS icon and it seems that already knew. It is a replica of the prototype, something that comes in handy not only aesthetic, but also as far as technology is concerned. Premieres and sportier body kit , with a carbon fiber pieces signing as the front spoiler, rear diffuser or large spoiler standing on the tailgate.
However, lightness is not only work of this team carbon, but has worked in reducing brand scale through the body panels. Polymers reinforced with carbon fiber is the answer to the roof and the hood answer the question of weight. The ultra light wheels 20 inches do the rest, Acid Orange color, to finish off a GTS M4 only weighs 1,510 kilos , just over 100 kilos less than the standard M4.
Inside also comes that blessed obsession with weight, by removing the rear seats standing there and a new piece of carbon, or replacing center console for a lighter unit. The seats are now two backets carbon fiber Alcantara upholstery, the same material that reaches the steering wheel or dashboard. Finally, searching for the last bit to lose, the door handles are replaced by simple tape.
The user can opt for a hardcore Clubsport package should be standard. Includes roll cage in the back painted Acid Orange, a fire or a 6-point harness anchor. BMW is very clear, this car has the makings of pilot and will not hesitate to cross the tracks. For one example: runs Nürburgring in a time of 7 minutes and 28 seconds
responsible for it is mechanical. Yes, it’s the same engine 6-cylinder 3 liter supercharged M3 and M4, but uses a technology pioneer in street cars, the water injection . Something we talked about this system which controls the temperature of the combustion chamber, thereby increasing power. In this case the drive reaches 500 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque .
Associated with a unique dual clutch transmission M achieves 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds , while the maximum speed reaches 305 km / h. BMW says it has equipped its new sports exhaust with titanium which not only reduces weight, but also changes the sound to create a distinctive environment.
The chassis has not been worse treated and surrenders to maximum effectiveness. Performance in M have worked on a new suspension kit, new stabilizer or a team of carbocerámicos brakes standard. Yet here we have tried gram of weight reduction and has placed a bar of carbon fiber turrets.
Technology has not gone for long either GTS BMW M4, not just one that seeks further mechanical performance. It will be the first production car with OLED technology in its lighting . It is something that several manufacturers have been working and allow the light signature of the headlights is more typical and characteristic, more complicated and striking forms.
Although the BMW M4 GTS is a reality, we do not know when it will arrive at dealerships, we do not know at what price. What is clear is that it will be a very exclusive version because only 700 units be manufactured.
