BMW has announced that the 2017 BMW M4 GT4 will have its North American debut this weekend at Watkins Glen International during the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen. Sales of the M4 GT4 have already kicked off in Europe, but if you want to get one in the United States, expect to pay at least $196,000 for it.
“BMW of North America has received great amount of interest in the M4 GT4 from our customer racing teams,” said Victor Leleu, BMW of North America Motorsport Manager. “We wanted to show the car in the States at the earliest possible opportunity. The M4 GT4 was designed and constructed to allow BMW customer racing teams to successfully compete in an increasing number of series that have embraced the GT4 specification, among them the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.”
The M4 GT4 slots in between the BMW M235i Racing and the BMW M6 GT3 models. It features carbon fiber doors, motorsport-specific front splitters and rear wings, and a racing exhaust system. The seat, brakes and pedal box are borrowed from the BMW M6 GT3.
