Video: 2016 BMW M4 Tackles Anglesey Circuit

The second official video of the 2016 BMW M4 GTS has just been released. This clip shows the track-focused M4 variant hitting the picturesque Anglesey Circuit in the United Kingdom with BMW evidently quite eager to show off just how tail-happy the car can be.

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.
