BMW has unveiled its special edition BMW M4 GTS and loaded the car with appealing styling and high performance upgrades.
“We’ve taken a radical route with the set-up of the BMW M4 GTS to create a sports machine for the race track that delivers top-end dynamics and inspirational performance,” said Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH, in a press release. “It allows us to demonstrate what is possible today with a road-legal car.”
What separates the M4 GTS from the basic model is its water injection system which allows to car to reach higher speeds.
The M4 GTS marks the first time the water injection system has been used in a road car, according to BMW. The system works by creating a mist that is injected into the intake manifold where it evaporates, cooling the engine which in turns reduces the final compression pressure.
This cooling system improves the performance turbo chargers which allows for the engine to crank out 493 horsepower, taking the car from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 149 miles per hour.
