The track-focused BMW M4 GTS was built to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M3 and has its sights set squarely on the racetrack, with a lap time of 7.28 minutes around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife. To back what it claimed, BMW has finally released the onboard footage of the M4 GTS’ lap.
Behind the wheel of the M4 GTS was BMW M engineer and test driver Joerg Weidinger, who was also the commentator in the video.
The M4 GTS is powered by a tweaked version of the M3/M4’s six-cylinder turbocharged in-line engine. The 3.0-litre engine produces a substantial 368kW of power and 600Nm of torque, shuffled by a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT). It can sprint from 0-100km/h in a mere 3.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 305km/h, while returning a claimed 8.3L/100km.
