Video: 2016 BMW M4 GTS Promo

Just after its official online debut, the first promo video of the 2016 BMW M4 GTS has been released. Appropriately showing the new German sports car on a racetrack, the clip provides us a glimpse at the track-focused nature of the car.

On an engine front, the twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine has been outfitted with water injection technology, just like the BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car. Thanks to this technology as well as a range of other engine modifications, power rises from 425 hp up to 493 hp (500 PS). Additionally, torque now sits at 442 lb-ft meaning the 2016 BMW M4 GTS can accelerate to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds and onto a limited 305 km/h top speed. The car also managed to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:28.

Elsewhere, a new three-way M coilover suspension system has been installed into the M4 GTS enabling for a range of customisation options and dramatically improved handling over the standard car. To cater for the extra speed provided by the M4 GTS, new lightweight M carbon ceramic brakes come standard. The seven-speed double-clutch transmission has also been optimised.

Other key elements of the vehicle include the exclusive M alloy wheels taken straight from the M4 GTS Concept. They are then wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres measuring 265/35 at the front and 285/20 at the rear. The M4 GTS also comes equipped with LED headlights and for the first time in a production car, OLED taillights.
