The BMW M4 GTS Undergoes Final Testing at the ‘Ring

That wing. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

BMW is at the Nurburgring this week putting some finishing touches on the highly anticipated M4 GTS and as you an imagine, the automotive paparazzi were there.

Unlike the previous GTS (and CSL) we fully expect this generation to make its way to the North American market. According to several dealer sources the M4 GTS has shown up in dealer ordering systems with production starting in March of 2016.

Reportedly the M4 GTS we’ll follow the same overall approach that we saw with the E92 based M3 GTS; more aggressive front bumper, wing, no rear seats, racing buckets, half-cage, full adjustable suspension and of course more power. We also expect the standard carbon ceramic brakes bring the price up to a lofty sum.

Under the hood the GTS will be fitted with a water-injection system  that BMW showed off earlier this year. Water injection will help cool the engine charge intake, especially useful under hard circuit use, reducing knock and potentially allowing the GTS to run more boost. How much more power? We’re guessing BMW will want at least 50hp more than the standard car to help compete against track spec Porsches and the like.

Look for the GTS to debut at Pebble Beach festival this August.
