$300,000 BMW M4 GTS already sold out in Australia
BMW has confirmed Australia will receive 25 examples of its track-focused limited edition M4 GTS road-going race cars.
But if you fancied one, you're already too late folks. Despite a $295,000 price tag (before on-roads), all have already sold out before their September delivery date.
Even more track focussed than its predecessor E46 M3 CSL of 2003, the M4 GTS finds 368kW/600Nm from BMW's twin turbo in-line six-cylinder found in the M3 and M4, helping it reach 100kmh in 3.8-seconds and on to 305kmh.
The GTS is 30kg lighter than a normal M4 thanks to extensive use of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, including a carbon bonnet, rear diffuser, and adjustable front splitter and rear wing, joining the normal M4's carbon roof.
Whether the 25 cars (from a global allocation of 700) will enjoy Aussie race tracks rather than just a collector's heated garaged remains to be seen, but the ability is there.
Three-way adjustable coilover suspension, Carbon-ceramic brake discs, light alloy wheels, carbon race bucket seats, no rear seat and Alcantara finish all feature, while opt for a no-cost Race Package (still street legal) and you get a steel half roll cage, six-point harness seat belts and fire extinguisher.
Not enough? Drop another $21,560 and you save a total of 7kg with M Carbon Compound wheels. Yep, really.
Slightly more attainable (we hope) is BMW's M3 30 Jahre, celebrating 30 years since the iconic original M3: the E30 M3.
Based on the current 331kW/550Nm $144,900 M3 Competition model, the 30 Jahre cars - 500 available globally - feature Macao blue paint, carbon fibre front splitter and trims, mirror caps, rear diffuser and rear spoiler.
In Germany you pay an extra 10,000 Euros ($15,400) over a normal M3 Competition, so expect any Aussie-bound 30 Jahre cars to be around the $160,000 mark.
