BMW M Motorsports shows off the new BMW M4 GT3
$530,000. 590 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.
BMW M Motorsport recently announced and showcased their newest race car built upon the new 2021 M4 Competition Coupe - the BMW M4 GT3.
The BMW M4 GT3 will come powered by the P58 3.0-liter inline-6-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine kicking out 590 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. “590 hp and 516 lb-ft – this is the most powerful straight-six engine BMW has installed in a racing car since the days of the BMW M1 Group 5,” says Ulrich Schulz, Head of Drivetrain Design, BMW Motorsport.
The first time you will get to see a M4 GT3 out racing internationally will be on June 26th, 2021 at round 4 of this season’s Nurburgring Endurance Series (NLS). According to BMW, in North America, the BMW M4 GT3 will be eligible to compete in the GT Daytona and GT Daytona Pro classes of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, as well as the GT class of the SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge America and SRO GT America.
“BMW of North America is preparing to welcome the BMW M4 GT3 for the 2022 racing season and support our BMW Customer Racing family behind the latest offering from BMW M Motorsport,” says Victor Leleu, BMW NA Motorsport Manager. “We have little doubt that this car will be as successful as its predecessor, the BMW M6 GT3 – most recently the IMSA GTD winner at Mid-Ohio with Bill Auberlen, Robby Foley and our friends at Turner Motorsport.”
The BMW M4 GT3 will retail for $530,000 in the US (excluding shipping). As if $530k isn't enough, there is a Competition Package for $55,000 more and includes additional headlights, backlit door numbers, TPMS with 8 sensors, spring and brake pedal travel measurement systems, BOSCH CAS-M rear-view camera radar system, an additional set of rims, and one day of training on the BMW M Motorsport M4 GT3 simulator.
