BMW M4 GTS - 500 HP And 0-100 Km/H In 3.8 Seconds
|   Friday, October 30, 2015
BMW presents the new version on steroids for the M4 coupe: the GTS. More aggressive than the series version, the new M4 GTS is presented with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 500 hp and 600 Nm of torque, and reaches 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds with a maximum speed of around 305 km / h, all weighting just 1510 kg.

The engine is the original one from the series version - the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo which benefits from technologies like TwinScroll Turbo (turbine supplied separately from two groups of three cylinders), High Precision injection system, camshaft control system variable, Double VANOS and Valvetronic, and is completed by the innovative water injection system.
This system has already provided a significant boost in terms of power and torque for the BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car.
The new engine scores a mixed average consumption of 8.3 liters / 100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 emission of 194 g / km, Euro 6 specific.

Let us not forget that the new BMW M4 GTS keeps the same weight, having a shape suitable for both street and the track - low weight and high structural rigidity is one of the most important factors that influence the dynamic driving experience. Power to weight ratio is a remarkable 3.0 kg / hp, providing the perfect platform for a particularly dynamic driving experience.

Like the M4 Coupe, the new GTS hasCFRP (reinforced plastic with carbon fiber) body parts - hood, roof, and adjustable front splitter, being newly designed for the M4 GTS, which is another detail that leads to a massive drop in total weight mass. The idea of cutting the weight of construction elements can also be found in the interior by the replacement of the various other standard elements, especially designed for the new coupe.

For example, the shell seats are 50 percent lighter than those present on the M4 Coupe, a light center console, ultralight construction interior panels, all being evidence that show a necessary attention to detail. The exhaust received some love, and thanks to a titanium silencer, it allows a weight reduction of 20 percent compared to its standard version.

Regarding the interior, the new GTS is inspired directly from motorsports - ultra-light shell seats ensure an excellent driving position and long-distance comfort; they are dressed only in Alcantara / Merino with M stripes on the back, three-point shooting grip seat belt and cuffs doors highlight the BMW M4 GTS profile as a high-performance sports car. Instead of rear seats, it has a shelf of plastic reinforced with fiberglass (GFRP) and a rear panel in sandwich construction made of carbon fiber and covered with Alcantara and together they permit a weight reduction of approximately 40 percent compared to the series model with a normal seat.

The new GTS version lead the coupe M4 to another level - more impressive, aggressive and versatile, details can be observed both with the naked eye and from figures – the M4 GTS has established a total of only 7.28 minutes on the famous circuit, Nürburgring- Nordschleife, 24 seconds faster than its older brother, the M4, making it the fastest BMW series model.
