This Special Edition BMW M4 Coupe Is What Fans Have Been Waiting For

On Friday, BMW decided it couldn’t wait any longer to announce to fans that the BMW M4 would finally be hitting the shores here in the US, in the form of a limited run model called the BMW Concept M4 GTS.

The Long Awaited Return of the King

The BMW M4 is a natural progression from the M3, and has already been out in Europe since last year. There have been seven iterations of the best spanning all the way back to 1988, but none of them have touched American soil until now. For many car enthusiasts, this really shouldn’t come as much surprise. After all, there are many European cars that never make it across the pond. In BMW’s case, the BMW M4 needs to pass emissions and safety tests–along with many other requirements–necessary to bring the car over.

The BMW M4 GTS Brings Its Unique Water Injection System With It

In concept, the BMW M4 is a complete powerhouse. No, it’s not the fastest car on the road, or even the fastest car in its price bracket, but with 425 hp, a top speed of 163 mph, and its unique water injection system, it’s one sweet ride. The water injection system, introduced by BMW M GmbH, injects water into the intake manifold in a spray form. The water evaporates and begins to significantly cool the air intake by absorbing the heat. This creates higher boost pressure, and allows for earlier injection timing. In other words, it gives the car a significant amount of horsepower and torque while reducing the engine’s “knock.” “While the BMW M4 Coupe embodies the ideal combination of motor sport genes and unrestricted everyday usability, the BMW Concept M4 GTS previews an emotionally powerful and exclusive special model conceived with an eye for trailblazing technology and a keen focus on the race track,” said Frank van Meel, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW M GmbH. Of course, while the car might be a workhorse on the track, it’s still perfectly street legal.


The BMW Concept M4 GTS will also sport BMW’s new OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) rear lights; a new light source that produces full-surface and homogenous illumination. The technology that allow the vehicle to illuminate individual points with precision. Enthusiasts can look forward to the BMW M4 GTS hitting shore sometime next year, though the exact date and price are still unknown.
