BMW M4 GT3 EVO at the Nürburgring: BMW M Motorsport Enhances a Successful Model

02 Jun 2024
  • What are the key features of the BMW M4 GT3 EVO?

BMW M Motorsport has unveiled the EVO version of their flagship GT racing model, the BMW M4 GT3. Presented on Wednesday evening before the 24 Hours at the Nürburgring in the M Showroom at the ring°boulevard, this upgraded model marks another leap in performance and efficiency. The BMW M4 GT3 EVO will debut in races from the 2025 season. Alongside it, the BMW M4 GT4 will also feature an EVO version starting next season. The development of the BMW M4 GT3 EVO has been a highly collaborative process. BMW M Motorsport engineers prioritized intensive dialogue with teams and drivers to ensure the enhancements align with the real-world demands of GT racing. Understanding the specific needs of customers was crucial in tailoring the car for optimal performance, drivability, efficiency, and reliability, rather than focusing solely on raw power.

Testing of the new model was conducted by BMW M works drivers Jens Klingmann (GER), Bruno Spengler (CAN), and Augusto Farfus (BRA). This hands-on feedback loop helped refine the EVO version to meet and exceed the expectations of professional racers.

  • A finer and easier-to-adjust differential for improved handling and reduced tire and brake wear.

Lighting and Design

The new model features updated headlights at the front and rear, showcasing the LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) design. The "Inception" design theme integrates digitality and dimensionality into a bold, high-contrast mosaic. The iconic M colors—light blue, dark blue, and red—are presented in a three-dimensional, pixel-like sequence, creating an asymmetrical layout. Additionally, the dark areas of the livery allow the authentic carbon fiber construction to show through, reducing weight and enhancing visual appeal.

  • Engine: P58 3.0L straight-six M TwinPower Turbo.
  • Capacity: 2,993 cm³.

Aston Martin and works team Heart of Racing will return to the top class of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with two Valkyrie AMR-LMH hypercars in 2025, as the ultra-luxury British sportscar brand bids to win the famous race outright for the first time since 1959.

Aston Martin intends to enter two of the Valkyrie AMR-LMH hypercars in all rounds of the 2025 FIA World Endurance Championship [WEC], subject to its entry being accepted. This follows a regulation change by Le Mans event organiser the Automobile Club de l’Ouest [ACO] and the sport’s governing body the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile [FIA], stating that each participating manufacturer must enter at least two cars in the Hypercar class from 2025 onwards. The new rule was announced earlier this morning during the official press conference ahead of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
