BMW has revealed pricing details of the new M4 GT4, which is now available to order for customer deliveries for 2018.
The German manufacturer launched the sales phase of its new GT4 contender on Wednesday at the Nürburgring, site of this weekend’s 24-hour race that will see the M4 GT4 compete as part of its continued testing and development program.
The M4 GT4 will go on sale for 169,000 Euros ($189,000), in a ready-to-race “comprehensive starter package” that BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt said combines all of its motorsport expertise.
“Even after many years, the launch of a new car is still one of the absolute highlights for me as BMW Motorsport Director,” Marquardt said. “The start of the sales phase sees us reach another milestone with the BMW M4 GT4.
“We are looking forward to seeing the car enjoy success in the hands of our customer teams from 2018.
“We are offering our customers a sophisticated and reliable GT4 car, which incorporates all of BMW Motorsport’s expertise, coupled with the strong basis provided by the BMW M4 Coupé. The development of the BMW M4 GT4 focussed on mileage, cost efficiency and ease of maintenance.”
A single-car entry is set for this weekend’s Nürburgring 24, run under the Securtal Sorg Rennsport banner, for lead development driver Dirk Adorf, BMW Motorsport Junior Ricky Collard Joerg Weidinger and British journalist Jethro Bovingdon.
It will mark the car’s second 24-hour race following its competition debut in January’s Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai with BMW Team Schubert.
So far, the M4 GT4 has completed more than 12,000 miles of testing at circuits around the world.
