Following BMW Motorsport`s range of winnings in the 2016 season, the racing division from BMW is already thinking up ahead and is preparing for the 2018 season.
The big news is that BMW Motorsport is also warming up the all-new BMW M4 GT4, which will make its official debut in 2018. Below, the racer is seen in the first official images, revealing the model with the typical racing wrapping, which kinda resemble that of a test mule.
Before the new season, the BMW M4 GT4 will undergo a lot of tests, starting with the 24-hour Dubai race, next month. Speaking about the car`s rough testing, Jens Marquardt, BMW Motorsport Director, has also stated in a recent interview:
“Our international customers have celebrated many triumphs in the first year with the BMW M6 GT3. We hope this will continue in 2017. The comprehensive test programme with the BMW M4 GT4 will go on in parallel. We will also see the car in action in a couple of races. Our privateer teams will then compete with the newest model from our product range in 2018. I am particularly pleased that the BMW M235i Racing remains so popular. The widespread use of this race car and the positive feedback from our customers show that this model has been a hit since its introduction in 2014.”
As we can depict from the photos below, the all-new BMW M4 GT4 comes with carbon fiber components, some borrowed from the BMW M3 GTS. We are looking here at a carbon fiber bonnet with custom built air outlets for a more efficient air flow, adding front splinters, adjustable tailgate, carbon fiber doors and roof and a few more.
