New M4 GT3 Evo from BMW Unveiled at Nurburgring

A few days before the Nurburgring is scheduled to stage its yearly 24-hour enduro on June 1-2, the German manufacturer unveiled the facelifted version of its GT3 contender.

Three years after the M4 GT3 replaced the M6 in 2022, the automobile received a midlife refresh. Normally, manufacturers wait at least four years to release updates for a new GT3 vehicle.

Former DTM drivers Jens Klingmann, Bruno Spengler, and Augusto Farfus were among the factory drivers that assisted BMW in developing and testing the evo package for the M4.

The German automaker emphasized that the M4 GT3 evo didn’t just boost performance; it also put more of an emphasis on drivability, efficiency, and reliability.

In order to increase aero efficiency, the modifications include smaller rearview mirrors, bigger air vents on the front wheel arches, and a modified rear wing adjustment range.

To lessen tyre and brake wear, it has also added larger rear brake discs, new anti-roll bars to the front and back axles, and an easier-to-adjust differential. The updated kit now has updated headlights and tail lamps.

Dark portions of the livery are made entirely of raw carbon fiber and have not been painted in order to reduce weight.

The BMW M4 GT3 Evo is expected to retail for 578,000 euros.

Speaking of the revised M4, Andreas Roos, the head of BMW Motorsport, stated: “The BMW M4 GT3 has achieved more than 70 victories and countless major successes since its introduction.”

“I particularly remember the DTM titles in 2022, the victory at the 24h Spa-Francorchamps in 2023, and the title wins in the North American IMSA series.”

“I am convinced that the EVO model of the BMW M4 GT3, as well as that of the BMW M4 GT4, will contribute to playing in the first league of GT racing in the coming years and celebrating many more great victories. I thank everyone involved in the development of the cars.”

Throughout the 2024 season, BMW customer teams will still compete with the original M4 GT3; the updated model will only be made available to consumers starting in 2025.

Typically, manufacturers give teams the option to upgrade their current models for a set price or purchase a brand-new vehicle completely.

BMW is aiming for victory in this weekend’s Nurburgring 24 Hours at the Nordschleife, where last year’s M4 GT3, entered by Rowe Racing, came in second to the new Ferrari 296 GT3 raced by Frikadelli Racing Team.
