To continue its run of success in the internationally established GT4 category, BMW M Motorsport has released the new BMW M4 GT4.

For sale at a net price of 187,000 euros, production is set to start in October 2022, to allow the first cars to be delivered to teams in time for the start of the 2023 season.

"We took on the challenge to develop a successor to the highly successful first-generation BMW M4 GT4", said Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M.

"Using a wide range of customer feedback, our experienced development team and the new sixth-generation BMW M4 based production car has led to a faster, even more reliable and very emotional all-new BMW M4 GT4."

The new BMW M4 GT4 was developed to win races and titles, just like its predecessor. To this end, the latest key technologies from the production model have been combined with a range of components from its big brother, the BMW M4 GT3.

The developers focused on four key areas: performance, reliability, cost efficiency and maintainability. In addition, further developments in ergonomics and electronics have considerably improved the customer experience.

These include the M Track Cockpit, which makes many vehicle settings and checks possible directly via the control elements, thereby minimising the more time-consuming connection to a laptop.

The new BMW M4 GT4, was supported by partners like Bcomp, H&R, PUMA, RAVENOL and RECARO and the car will be taking part in the Nürburgring Endurance Series and in the 24 Hours of Portimão (POR).

Production for delivery to customers is due to start in October 2022 and the BMW M4 GT4 has been set to clear the pending SRO homologation, so that the car can be used in all GT4 race series around the world.
