BMW are previewing a concept for both road and the race track.
This concept will be shown at Pebble Beach Concours d`Elegance in California .
If this concept M4 GTS gets the green light, which we at We Blog Any Car think it will, it will follow in a great proven tradition of BMW M3 special models.
Think M3 Evolution, M3 GT, M3 CSL, M3 GTS and M3 CRT.
This is where things get really interesting…………..
BMW are showcasing their Water injection! What is it?
Water is injected into the plenums of the intake manifold as a very fine spray. This cools the intake and the temperature in the combustion chamber enabling earlier injection timing and the use of higher turbo boost pressure.
This system has been tried and tested in the MotoGP BMW M4 Safety Car. ( for you who follow MotoGP). There will be an increase in power and torque too.
BMW say: “the Concept M4 GTS therefore brings high-performance technology directly from the race track to the road”.
The Concept M4 GTS is fitted with OLED (organic light emitting diodes) which opens the ability for new designs in lighting and indicators.

Increase in torque and power.
We Blog thoughts………………………
BMW M Division engineers have been at it again. They have not produced a bad M car. So if this gets the go ahead it too will be added to an already impressive line of great M cars. (but remember this is a concept car and they are showing us what they can do). So expect OLED rear lights and the water injection system on new coming models.
I hope it will be at Frankfurt Motorshow, that way we will be able to get up close and personal with it.
