The M4 flagship – M4 GTS – continues its U.S. tour with a new stop in New York City. The super sporty M4 Coupe shines at the M exhibit attracting a large crowd around it.

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.
