‘Just add water’ in new M4
BMW has announced the production version of the M4 GTS concept with water injection shown at Pebble Beach earlier this year.
BMW said it will build only 700 models of the M4 GTS to commemorate 30 years since the original M3 was launched. The water injection system increases power to 368 kW and torque up to 600 Nm, which is 59 kW and 50 Nm more than the standard M4.
BMW has long proven water injection in its M4 Moto GP Pace Car, but the M4 GTS is the first production car with the technology; and the first car to be fitted with OLED lights, which are very narrow and light up across their whole surface.
No pricing has yet been announced for the M4 GTS, but buyers can expect to pay a premium over the starting price of R1 108 000 for the M4 Coupé in South Africa.
