The 2016 BMW M4 GTS is dubbed as the most radical and agile M4 the German company has ever built. The limited edition of the M4 will arrive in the US for the first time.
No more than 700 units of the 2016 M4 GTS will be produced and 300 of them are set to arrive in the States.
What makes the 2016 BMW M4 GTS a special and unique car is the water injection system. The 2016 M4 GTS is the first production car with the system that is usually designed for race cars.
The water-injection system is specifically designed to boost gas mileage and improve power and torque all while lowering the emission. How the system works? The system injects a precisely measured spray of water into the engine and as the water evaporates, it extracts energy from the parts around it, which in essence, lowers the temperature of the engine.
We mentioned that the result is more power and for the 2016 M4 GTS with a V6 engine, that is 68 more ponies when compared to the standard M4. The 2016 M5 GTS produces 493 ponies under the hood, resulting in better sprint time, as the car can get to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 190mph.
The V6 engine is accompanied by a seven speed dual-clutch transmission that includes three shift modes that the driver can use.
To compliment the improved engine, BMW has placed a specific and adjustable suspension in the 2016 M4 GTS that features bigger roll bars, carbon ceramic brakes and the electromechanical steering system. With all those goodies under the hood, the 2016 BMW M4 GTS is the most complicated and advanced M vehicle that the German company has ever built.
BMW has also managed to shed 200 pounds from the standard M4 thanks to using carbon fiber for the roof, hood and most of the aerodynamic add-ons.
The GTS model was initially designed only for the track, but BMW’s M division decided that buyers should get a chance to drive the extraordinary coupe. To make the 2016 M4 GTS more friendly for the city and roads, BMW has included parking sensors, A/C, fire extinguisher, special upholstery and navigation systems in the car.
The price of the 2016 BMW M4 GTS is not revealed at the moment, but prospective buyers could expect to pay much more than the $65,400 price tag of the standard M4 model.
