MUNICH, Germany - The BMW M4 GTS concept just made its world debut at Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach in California at the Monterey car week.
This seemingly confirms the rumours that BMW will build a hardcore version of the M4 for their 100th anniversary.
The production car was spotted in action, and while details are murky regarding the technical bits, it certainly does look impressive.

The GTS features new aerodynamic parts such as the splitter on the front bumper and the wing on the boot as well as the acid orange decked wheels.
The aerodynamic bits are fully-adjustable to fit the driver’s track needs or for the daily practicability.
