The BMW Concept M4 GTS made its first public appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.

Based on the current turbocharged M4 coupe, the M4 GTS is a lightweight, track-focussed road car, with more power and aggressive aerodynamics.

It showcases BMW’s new technology, which includes an innovative water injection system that increased the power and torque of the GTS’s 3.0-litre twin turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine to produce over 460bhp and nearly 450lb ft of torque.

M division engineers focussed on developing a road car that’s optimised for the track and as Frank van Meel, president of BMW’s M division, said “…despite its outstanding track ability, it is still fully road legal.”

The new M4’s carbon fibre front splitter and rear wing are both manually adjustable to aid aerodynamic balance, and the bonnet is made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic to help reduce the standard M4’s 1595kg kerb weight.

The car also features OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) rear lights which omit a full surface and homogenous illumination rather than a single point of light as with a regular LED light.   

The limited-edition M4 GTS model will appear at Frankfurt Motor Show next month and the production version is expected to be in the showrooms by Spring 2016.
