The M4 GTS is a higher performance, limited edition version of the M4 coupe, incorporating weight reduction, a more powerful engine and chassis upgrades. Its limited to 700 units world wide, with two units allocated to Singapore (already sold, naturally). Like the equally-sold-out Porsche 911 R, the retail price of $688,800 with COE might be less than what collectors are willing to fork out in the near future.

The bonnet, roof, front splitter, boot and rear wing are all made of carbonfibre reinforced plastic, while the interior sees more weight saving in the form of carbon sport seats, lightened support structures and no rear seats.

The car weighs 1,585kg with a driver, which is just five kilos less than the current M4 Competition Package and heavier than the vanilla M4 Coupe (1,572kg), but its engine is heavier because of the water-injection system that was first pioneered on the M4 MotoGP safety car in 2015.

The system increases engine power and torque to 500bhp and 600Nm, a boost of 50bhp and 50Nm, 0-100km/h time and top speed are reduced from 4.0 seconds and 280km/h to 3.8 seconds and 305km/h. Impressively, fuel economy and CO2 outputs remain the same.

Track fiends will enjoy the titanium exahust system, three-way adjustable coil-over suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and adjustable rear wing. The GTS also has unique wheels, 19-inch front and 20-inch rear, in ‘Acid Orange’ and come with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

The base M4, along with the four-door M3 sedan, received a boost in the form of the M Competition Pack in late 2016.
