BMW introduced their new M4 GTS at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and word soon spread of the new supercar’s performance prowess. In an official spin around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the M4 GTS kicked off the checkered flag ahead of the Porsche Carrera GT, McLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari’s 458 Italia, causing quite a frenzy. All 300 units allocated for the United States were sold out long before they reached our shores. Only 830 examples were produced. Since the uber limited production car’s release, the hype has only continued to grow, and one thing is certain: the ridiculously track-worthy M is as entertaining to drive as it is fast and attractive.
Powered by the M4’s successful S55 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine, the GTS’s powertrain has been brilliantly engineered to deliver 493 horsepower with 0-60 mph in less than 3.8 seconds and a reported top speed of 190 miles per hour. Myriad innovative developments have made this simply blistering performance possible. Most importantly, the S55 engine is blessed with a water injection system whereby water is sprayed into the intake plenum at or above 5,000 rpms. As the water rapidly evaporates, the post-intercooler air is cooled to temperatures between 80 to 120 degrees, which delivers 49 more horsepower. Other features that satiate the need for speed include damper adjustment, which can vary from low-speed compression, high-speed compression and rebound. Then, there is an effective 20 millimetres of adjustment in the ride height; the splitter and wing are seemingly-infinitely adjustable and provide significant downforce and the shocks are manually adjustable. This pinnacle of M-series engineering was truly envisioned with the ultimate in driver enjoyment and pitch-perfect handling as a priority.
The state-of-the-art design doesn’t just extend to what lies beneath the hood. Thoughtful efforts have been made to craft a sports car that is as lightweight as it is powerful. Featherlight carbon fiber has been utilized in the door panels, wing, diffuser, splitter, hood, trunk and even the driveshaft. The exhaust system is comprised of titanium and clocks in at twenty percent lighter than standard. The M4 GTS cabin strikes the ideal chord between sleek German luxury and the analog, streamlined cockpit all serious race-ophiles love. A host of modern conveniences include navigation system with trackpad, parking sensors, adaptive headlights, BMW assist system, HD and satellite radio, heads-up display and atmospheric lighting are seamlessly juxtaposed with track-worthy carbon fiber and silver aluminum trim, lightweight door pulls, manual sports seats and rad analog gauges. Race car purity meets the modern era here.
This classic black 2016 BMW M4 GTS we are proud to offer here looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor, if any of these cars had ever made it to a showroom in the first place. With less than 500 careful miles since new, this absolutely flawless car is one of the most pristine examples of the 300 allocated units that made it to our shores. Complete with track pack performance, it boasts a four-point roll cage, featherlight carbon fiber seats as well as an exterior carbon fiber package. This glorious beast is primed and ready to take to the track, dazzle curbside at valet or continue to appreciate in a climate-controlled garage.
