BMW has accidentally confirmed the existence of the M4 GTS, by putting up the model in the ordering system for its dealerships in the US. Though the image leaked by BimmerPost doesn’t divulge any technical details of the M4 GTS, it does reveal that the track-focussed two-door coupe will go on sale in the US around March 2016.
Based on the standard M4 coupe, the M4 GTS is expected to benefit from an aerodynamic body kit and a host of carbon fibre components to help it shed some weight. BMW might even ditch the rear seats altogether and replace the ones in the front with lightweight race-specs bucket seats, in pursuit of lightness. Rumours suggest that the M4 GTS will also get laser headlamps and OLED tail lamps.
While the M4 GTS will continue to employ the 3.0-litre TwinPower straight six engine, previous reports indicate that this engine will be tuned to churn out over 500 horsepower and 600Nm of torque. With dealer despatch set to commence in March 2016, we can expect deliveries of the M4 GTS to start in the second quarter of the next calendar year. It will compete with the other track focussed coupes like the Porsche Cayman GT4, Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe as well as the upcoming Jaguar F-type SVR.
