Last month, in a marvelous event at the BMW Welt, the first BMW M4 GTS models were delivered to customers from around the world. No less than 45 M4 GTS cars were put on the street and on the track, with more to come in the upcoming weeks. The super sporty M4 Coupe can be ordered with two wheel choices – the M Star (Style 666M) 19-inch front wheels (9.5 J x 19) and 20-inch (10.5 J x 20) rear wheels, painted in Acid Orange and wrapped in the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (front: 265/35 R19; rear: 285/30 R20), and the the M Carbon Compound Wheels (front: 9.5 J x 19, rear: 10.5 J x 20).
But now, the M4 GTS customers can resort to the aftermarket for custom wheels. The folks over at HRE Wheels have just unveiled their HRE P101 line for the M4 GTS. Painted in a Brushed Copper color, the custom wheels remind of the Acid Orange accents seen on the OEM wheels, and come in 20 inch size, all around.
The M4 GTS featured here sports the 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped with ultra-high-performance tires from Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
The BMW M4 GTS is M’s most hardcore vehicle and also one of its most expensive cars. At 142,000 Euros (roughly $160,000 US), only the BMW i8 is more expensive. The M4 GTS however, is also one of BMW’s fastest and most track-ready cars. 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.
The BMW M4 GTS’ main competition will be the Porsche 911 GT3. They’re almost exactly the same price, have very similar performance and are both livable everyday.
BMW will only be developing 700 units of the M4 GTS, with only 300 making it to the North American market. Those are very low figures, even lower than the those of the Porsche 911 GT3. When something is rare, it becomes more valuable, obviously. The BMW M4 GTS will be very rare.
