Yesterday, the upcoming BMW M4 GTS was spotted during a testing session at Nurburgring. After the car retired near the M Testing Facility, our sister website Bimmertoday had a chance to get unclose with the M4 GTS.

Camouflaged with the BMW M4 Safety livery, the M4 GTS stands out with large rear wing and the unmistakable front splitter with camo tape on it as well.
