According to our sources, the 2016 BMW M4 GTS will be unveiled next month. First units will be delivered in 2016 and will be sold as a Model Year 2017. A new prototype was spotted on the Nurburgring track during hot laps.
Our sources say ceramic brakes will be standard on the GTS and dual-clutch transmission is likely to be the only choice offered.
In addition to the obvious aerodynamic components, customers can look forward to some new lightweight elements on the M4 GTS. The weight benefits will also be realized through the omission of the rear bench and the use of extremely lightweight bucket seats.
To further improve the power-to-weight ratio, a performance upgrade for the twin-turbo inline six-cylinder S55 in on BMW’s list as well. We currently estimate that the expected BMW M4 GTS middle-class athlete will drive its rear wheels with about 470 hp.
As hinted last month, the upcoming BMW M4 GTS will feature the water injection system seen in the BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car.
