WORLD PREMIERE: BMW M4 GTS with 493 horse power

The BMW M4 is an outstanding driving device. It’s one of the finest cars presently on the marketplace and among the most enjoyable. However can it enhance, can BMW make it even much better and more enjoyable to drive? The response is yes and BMW has actually already gone and done it through the BMW M4 GTS.

To create the BMW M4 GTS, the folks in Munich chose to take the basic M4 and crank it up to eleven. It’s far more sophisticated than it sounds. BMW went through terrific lengths to make sure that the M4 GTS is much faster and manages better than the conventional car. Which is an unbelievable achievement, considering how great the standard M4 is.

First, BMW started with the engine.

The 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged engine in the standard M4 makes 425 hp. For GTS duty, BMW took that engine and included water injection and some created internals, like the crankshaft. While that does not sound all that substantial, it makes a world of a distinction. Water Injection, a world initially on the GTS, substantially reduces combustion chamber temperature level by spraying an incredibly great mist into it during combustion. This reduction in temperature, by up to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, increases both power and performance while also lowering engine knock. With this system, power bumps up from 425 to 493 for GTS task. That added power assists the GTS get from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds, down two tenths from the standard M4.

But BMW would not just bump up the horse power and stop. Oh no, the M4 GTS has a few more tricks up its sleeve. New, revised guiding parts and geometry give it sharper turn in and much better feel. Created aluminum control arms, installed directly to the subframe without rubber bushings, assistance hone the dealing with even additionally. The aerodynamics have also, and certainly, been altered to provide the M4 GTS much increased downforce in addition to much better looks. A racing spoiler is connected to the trunk lid by 2 CNC-milled aluminum supports, each consisting of a detailed strut plan that efficiently integrates high stiffness with very low weight. The rear wing can be changed through 3 positions– one for road driving and 2 others that can be picked according to individual choice on the track

But however think that the new M4 GTS is just a track monsterBeast as it’s designed to also be an excellent exceptional car.”Owners can drive their BMW M4 GTS to circuits such as Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring or Laguna Seca– for clubsport events, for example– then set lap times there that raise the bar to incredibly high levels for road-legal automobiles,” states Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M.

The BMW M4 GTS includes a three-way adjustable coilover suspension with mechanically adjustable compression and rebound settings, with precise independent adjustment of low- speed and high-speed compression. This allows the suspension to be customized to the qualities of different tracks.

The GTS requires a proper steering system, so BMW has worked their magic to offer the finest possible steering feel on the track. The steering torque curve has been additionally enhanced by modifications to the front suspension kinematics and the incorporation of functions such as uneven steering support mounts and a motorsport-derived, custom-made, milled swivel bearing. This design allows optimized axle geometry for lateral dynamics and guiding torque.

The swivel bearing likewise enables the usage of 9.5 inch broad front wheels. BMW M engineers have actually maintained the 19-inch front tires, while the rear axle makes usage of 10.5 inch wide wheels running on 20 inch diameter tires. The front camber setting has been adapted to a minus two degree setting for enhanced cornering lateral forces.

BMW’s Active M Differential gets an upgrade also. Its control unit is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control(DSC) system and takes into consideration accelerator pedal position, wheel speeds and automobile yaw. All driving circumstances can for that reason be exactly assessed and an impending loss of traction at one side of the car is identified at a very early phase. When essential, the system responds with split-second speed to vary the locking action, which can be anywhere in between zero and 100 percent. This prevents wheel spin on low-traction surface areas, on split- traction surfaces with a big difference in friction coefficient in between the left and best rear wheels, on tight hairpin bends or during quick steering maneuvers.

BMW M4 GTS is geared up with lightweight, enhanced, ultra-high-performance M carbon ceramic brakes, which are developed for an additionally improved track capability and longer life. The brakes are made of carbon-fiber-reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC).

Concorso d’Eleganza: BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Photos

BMW took the world by surprise with the reveal of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage at the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza. “Our Hommage vehicles not only demonstrate how happy we are of our heritage, but also how vital the past can be in determining our future,” states Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

The other day we brought you unique pictures of the 3.0 CSL Hommage and now we have a new set of high-resolution pictures showing the automobile from multiple angles.

The Hommage Idea sticks out with its muscular front end and upright grille are reminiscent to the original CSL and its muscular racing design. There are ‘X’s designed into the twin-circle headlights, to evoke memories of the stickered ‘X’s on the headlights of long range racing cars of yore. The size of the kidney grille is exactly what bothered everybody after seeing the automobile, however we believe this is a design exercise to highlight a future design language where the front-end of the vehicles ends up being more huge — — simply not as massive as this one.

Right here is how our own Nico DeMattia described the front and rear-end design:

From the front end, a constant horizontal line runs the sides of the vehicle. In profile, this line is seen throughout the whole length of the long wheelbase, offering the vehicle a long, low and streamlined look. Dark CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) sideskirts lend a visual gap between the intense yellow color of the bodywork and the pavement below. While the low hood and roofline, combined with the enormous 21″ wheels give the CSL Hommage an extremely low looking position. You’ll likewise notice the side-mounted exhaust pipes mounted just in front of the rear wheels. The CSL Hommage even has BMW Roundels installed at the base of the C Pillars, a throwback to the exact same design on the initial CSL.

The rear end is where the CSL Hommage truly comes alive, as the aerodynamic rear fenders form upward to create a rear wing between the both of them. An LED light bar runs the length of the wing down into the back of the car and is a spectacular piece of design. At the bottom, a CFRP rear diffuser lends a racing seek to the back of the Hommage. From above, the CSL Hommage shows off its curves, and you can clearly see how the vehicle forms a ‘V’ at both front and rear ends.
