2016 BMW M4 GTS Release Date, Price, Interior, Pictures – Just like other high performance vehicles, the BMW m3 version came into being with a perfect platform for a dozen of edition models throughout its entire antiquity. Who can afford to forget about the E46 based CSL and the E36 based GTR, or even the Ravaglia and Cecotto editions of the 1st generation M3?
Then came the GTS version, which arguably redefined the entire model line-up of the M series. It was a powerful but lighter version of the E92 M3, this coupe derived its power from a 4.4L V8 engine that yielded 444 hp and weighed less than the standard M3 by 300lbs. the aforesaid specs made the coupe have an incredible sprint of 60 mph in less than 4.2 seconds.
Despite the tour of history above, the Germans have now disembarked on a new iteration that is underway and which will now be based on the M4. This is the word given to us by our exclusive photographers who managed to spot the M4 prototypes doing test drives.
Below is a review of what we expect the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS to look like once it is released in showrooms.
2016 BMW M4 GTS exterior
The exterior of the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS will not come with too many details, judging from the spy shots we got of the new M4 GTS, we should expect some carryovers from the previous model and few changes as well.
From early renderings, we can see that the car is much more aggressive than the normal GTS thanks to a refreshed features on its body. The updated features will include things like redesigned front bumper, air intakes and headlights.
The outer body kit will also be more aerodynamic, this will be as a result of redesigned side fenders and exterior lines. Also the automakers have also used a different body kit with lower suspension details. The car will come in many different colors.
The front bumper will now come with a small splitter while that one at the back will get a diffuser. At the boot, you should also expect to see a small spoiler that will look similar to the M3 GTS.
Lastly, the exhaust system will be pure M style with a quad exhaust at the centre of the car.
2016 BMW M4 GTS interior
The interior of the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS will probably get significant changes in comparison to the overall changes that have been done on the car. The new GTS will now feature two seats that will be made available in Recaro designs.
They will also be wrapped in Alcantara leather which will provide great comfort and lateral support both for open roads and off road manoeuvres. Dissimilar to the normal car, the brand new 2016 BMW M4 GTS will also feature a six-point harness for both its passengers and driver.
Not much details has been provided about the brand new 2016 BMW M4 GTS, however we should expect a great car that will come with exceptional specs.
Under the hood of the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS will be several engines that will be made available for buyers. There will be the same 3L twin turbocharged inline 6 engine. This engine will crank out 470 hp and 390 pounds of torque.
The new output figures are as a result of the new intake system and a different exhaust system. With the changes, expect the car to sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Its maximum speed will be limited to 155 mph.
Another new feature will be the tweaked version of the seven-speed auto transmission system. The details pertaining the availability of the manual transmission system are not yet available for now, but we expect BMW to release them soon.
The weight of the new chassis has also contributed significantly to the performance figures. While the older M4 weighs a whopping 1,670kg’s, the new GTS will now weigh approximately 1,400 kg’s, which will result in the car being the lightest in its line-up.
2016 BMW M4 GTS price and release date
No details concerning the pricing of the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS has been released as yet, but we should expect the new GTS to cost around $60,000. Industry rumours suggests that the new coupe will hit showrooms somewhere around this year.
