BMW has unveiled its new GT4-specific M4 race car, which the company has helpfully named the BMW M4 GT4.The big news is probably the price. It costs €187,000 (about £160,000), which – if our calculations are correct – is slightly cheaper than the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport.

As for the engine, it’s the familiar 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline-six, but it’s capable of up to 550bhp and 479lb-ft of torque, regulations permitting. There is also a seven-speed ZF transmission and 10-speed traction control.

Inside there are Recaro seats and a Fanatec steering wheel. Oh, and BMW has fitted what it calls the M Track Cockpit, which allows drivers and teams to check various settings without having to plug in a laptop.

“We took on the challenge of developing a successor to the highly successful first-generation BMW M4 GT4,” says Franciscus van Meel, head of BMW’s M Division. “A lot of customer feedback, our experienced development team, and the new production car based on the sixth generation BMW M4 have resulted in a fast, reliable and very emotional new BMW M4 GT4.”

Production will begin in October this year, with the first deliveries in time for the 2023 season. BMW also announced that the car is now entering its final testing phase and will take part in the next Nuerburgring Endurance Series and the 24 Hours of Portimão. It will be a good test…
