BMW Motorsport is preparing a successor of the M3 GT4, which is no other than the M4 racer, slotted to debut in January 2018, at the 24 Hours of Dubai event.
The BMW M4 GT4 is already being tested and will be ready in time for its debut in 2018. Jens Marquardt, BMW Motorsport Directo has also stated that “The GT4 category is currently experiencing a boom. If offers affordable motorsport with cars of technical high-quality and, therefore, attracts a wide target audience. We see enormous potential around the world for privateer BMW teams for whom the BMW M4 GT4 is an option.”
BMW Motorsport have chosen the BMW M4 GT4 as the new racer because it comes with the perfect structure, aerodynamics, handlings, all which can be improved and customized to become the perfect sports car.
The racer will have a lot in common with the stock M4, meaning that it will use the drivetrain, mechanicals and the electronics.
There will also be some carbon fiber components that will make it lightweight, for instance it will have the M4 GTS`s carbon bonnet, adding carbon fiber doors, custom motorsport front splitter, rear wing and custom-built racing exhaust system.
The interior will be also adapted for racing, meaning the same sports seats, braking system and pedal box borrowed from the bigger BMW M6 GT3.
Once it will be ready for the 2018 racing season, the BMW M4 GT4 is going to take part in different events in Europe, North America or Asia.
