BMW’s second most expensive model in the U.S. – the M4 GTS – just made its North American debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The BMW M4 GTS makes use of the multi-award-winning M TwinPower Turbo engine with 493 hp, a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds, water-injection and manually adjustable shocks – the M4 GTS is ready to munch almost anything that comes to the track.

This Special Edition M4 GTS recorded a lap time of 7 minutes 28 seconds around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the world’s most challenging race circuit.

The standard M4 Coupe equipped with DCT and ceramic brakes lapped the famous Nurburgring in just 7:52 minutes, slightly behind the E46 M3 CSL (7:50) and the M3 GTS (7:48). The predecessor E92 M3 ran around the same track in 8:05 minutes. The previous special edition M3, the GTS, recorded a Nurburgring time of 7:48 minutes.
