BMW Motorsport used the traditional Season Review event in Munich to show off the new BMW M4 GT4 customer race car. With the BMW M6 GT3 spearheading the product range for privateer teams and drivers, BMW Motorsport is releasing the M4 GT4 as a more cost effective way to race at the highest levels of GT racing.
Similar to the M235i, the M4 GT4 will allow teams to buy a turn-key product that has already been fully tested and vetted to perform on par with Aston Martin Vantage, Ford Mustang, McLaren 570S and Porsche Cayman.
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “Our international customers have celebrated many triumphs in the first year with the BMW M6 GT3. We hope this will continue in 2017. The comprehensive test programme with the BMW M4 GT4 will go on in parallel. We will also see the car in action in a couple of races. Our privateer teams will then compete with the newest model from our product range in 2018. I am particularly pleased that the BMW M235i Racing remains so popular. The widespread use of this race car and the positive feedback from our customers show that this model has been a hit since its introduction in 2014.”
Speaking of those M235i race cars, BMW has produced 170 of them for worldwide use.
