BMW Unveils Its M4 GT3 Flagship Race Car & You Can Actually Buy One

BMW describes itself as the maker of the ultimate driving machine, and Bimmer fans certainly know that incredible performance is a calling card of the brand. But what if the M3s, M4s, and M8s of the world aren’t thrilling enough for you? Well, for starters, you’re probably crazy, but if you’re not, then BMW has you covered with their new consumer-ready GT flagship race car, the M4 GT3.

The 2022 BMW M4 GT3 replaces the M6 GT3 in BMW Motorsports’ lineup, and it’s been engineered to be more approachable and easy to drive for amateurs than its predecessor. Based on the next-gen BMW M4, the M4 GT3 uses a P58 3.0L straight-six M TwinPower Turbo engine that puts out 590HP and is mated to an Xtrac six-speed gearbox with an electro-hydraulic clutch. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the M4 GT3, though, is its steering wheel. Not only does the wheel contain all you need to configure basic settings without having to plug into a laptop (there’s that driver-friendliness), but it was also co-developed with FANATEC and is the first steering wheel in the world that can be used in both a real race car and a simulator. That will come in handy, as everyone who purchases an M4 GT3 with the Competition Package also receives an exclusive training day in an in-house BMW M4 GT3 simulator. The BMW M4 GT3 starts at € 415,000 (~$503,000).

Purchase: $503,000+
