BMW invited us today at the official unveil of the new BMW Concept M4 GTS, the street-legal racing car which will also come to the U.S. in 2016. The M4 GTS is the pinnacle of BMW performance. It’s the ultimate expression of BMW’s racing technology for use on the road. It’s not only lighter than the regular M4, but it comes with track-ready features and the water injection system.
What the system does is inject ultra-fine water spray into the plenums of the intake. The water is then vaporized, which cools the intake air dramatically, thus reducing the compression temperature in the combustion chamber.
The production car will be very close to the concept presented today, so we expect to see the manually adjustable exposed carbon fiber front splitter and rear wing, the Frozen Dark Grey Metallic paint and Acid Orange accents and wheels. Other exterior colors will be offered as well.
BMW’s first production car with OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) looks even more impressive from up-close and we can see why BMW designers love this new technology. OLEDs give BMW designers the ability to shape the taillights in more ways than ever before, giving the car an unique look and premium at the same time.
If you’re on the market to a real Porsche 911 competitor, the M4 GTS is the car for you, just hurry up to your local dealer since the numbers will be limited.
