Having made its official presence felt at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, BMW M4 GTS concept will go on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015. A production version can be expected to enter showrooms sometime in Spring 2016.

It gets a carbon fiber reinforced plastic bonnet, LED tail lamps, an adjustable front splitter and larger rear spoiler.

Sitting on a re-worked chassis, the BMW M4 GTS concept receives 19”/20” lightweight forged alloy wheels while wider air intake ensure airflow optimization while at the same time reducing front axle lift. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph can be achieved in 4.3 seconds while top speed stands at 250 kmph.
