The latest BMW is an unstoppable machine. The BMW M4 GT3 is one of those purist vehicles. It’s in good company too. The BMW race series involve an M8 GTE, a M4 GT4 and also a M2 CS Racing. Furthermore, this is what will outdo the M6 GT3 of relatively archaic technology. For the American continent, this particular BMW is able to compete in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (GT Daytona and GT Daytona Pro classes), as well as the SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge. And who could forget SRO GT America? Most certainly not a winner like this BMW.
With this vehicle comes a tenacity to push for excellent speed BMW can’t help but promise.
Through the huge grille, there’s an S58 I-6. Which is formally known as the “P58 M TwinPower Turbo,” whatever that means. Furthemore, the vehicle itself can create up to 590 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. What’s more is that these are better odds than what the production motor can provide with the 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft.
Not to mention there happens to be 80 pounds less than what you would find on a V-8 belonging to a certain M6 GT3. The M4 GT3 gives off various exclusives with the P58 replacement. Like various engine mounts and a dry-sump oiling system. Of course there’s no clean-sheet engine as the P58 has a shared crankcase cylinder head as well as connecting rods with the S58. Surely, they are balanced out for competition duty.
The P58 is also backed up by a sequential six-speed gearbox, paired up with an electro-hydraulic clutch. This is given a little help by the steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Of course, one can expect the M4 GT3 to weaken any wallet by at least $530,000. Shipping notwitstanding. Should you be interested to bring in the Competition package, then that’s a provisional $55.000 coming out of pocket.
