Welcome BMW’s latest GT4 racing entrant, the BMW M4 GT4. Set to start testing before the end of the year, the GT4 will draw heavily from the production M4, going so far as to use the hood from the water-injected M4 GTS.
-Under that hood, expect to find the same basic 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six as found in the M4, as GT4 rules note that the basic engine—including its position, location, and orientation—must remain original. GT4-specific features include a racing exhaust system, doors made of carbon fiber, and a specially designed front splitter and rear wing. Other motorsports items include a seat, pedal box, and brake system taken directly from the bigger BMW M6 GT3 race car.

BMW notes that customer deliveries will begin in the middle of 2017, and that the first race that the new M4 GT4 will be eligible to compete in is the 24 Hours of Dubai in January 2018. The M4 GT4 will compete against entrants from Aston Martin, ChevroletLotus, MaseratiPorsche and others.
