Cape Town - BMW's fastest M4 yet, the new GTS, is set to arrive in South Africa later in 2016.
What makes it special? The M4 GTS is powered by a six-cylinder in-line turbo engine borrowed from the standard BMW M3/M4 (317kW/550Nm) but adds innovative water injection technology to give the 3.0-litre unit a substantial power boost to 368kW/600Nm.
The GTS should arrive at local dealerships in September.
