BMW M4 GT3
At 09:40 on 18th July 2020, the wait was over: the BMW M4 GT3 completed its first kilometres at the roll-out at the BMW Group plant in Dingolfing.
In February, the 590-hp P58 engine hit the test bench. From the middle of the year, the first tests were performed in the BMW Group wind tunnel, using a 60-percent scale model of the car. The first test chassis for the BMW M4 GT3 was produced at the start of 2020 at the BMW Group plant in Regensburg. After this, the test car, which was used for the roll-out, was assembled within about six weeks in the BMW Motorsport workshop.
This was followed in 2020 and 2021 by many test sessions, during which the car was constantly optimised on its way to being race-ready. The new car already has over 14,000 test kilometres under its belt – meaning greater driveability and reliability. The goal: to significantly reduce lifecycle costs and maintenance expenditure compared to its predecessor.
The BMW M4 GT3 took its race debut on 26th June 2021 at round four of this season’s Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS). From 2022, the car was then in action in the hands of BMW M Motorsport teams in top GT racing series and endurance races around the world.
