BMW M4 Coupe Launches on Gran Turismo 6

Polyphony Digital Inc., creators of the newly-released Gran Turismo®6 for PlayStation®3, and BMW have announced that the new BMW M4 Coupé has been made available through a new update for the game. Owners of GT6™ will be among the first in the world to sample the delights of the BMW M4 Coupé, albeit in virtual form, before the car goes on sale during 2014.

As a celebration of this collaboration between BMW and Gran Turismo 6, a unique Seasonal Event featuring the BMW M4 Coupé is available on GT6 for two weeks, from today until 26 December 2013. The BMW M4 Coupé Superlap challenge will take place on the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit and gives players the opportunity to buy or rent the car to complete the event, giving anyone the chance to experience this stunning new vehicle in the virtual world before it launches in the real world.

Until now, the BMW M4 Coupé has only been shown publicly as a "concept", but thanks to an innovative collaboration with BMW M GmbH, Polyphony Digital enjoyed unprecedented early access to the car during its development phase in order to meticulously recreate the BMW M4 Coupé for Gran Turismo 6.

A camouflaged version of the real BMW M4 Coupé was a mystery guest at the recent spectacular Gran Turismo 6 launch event at Ronda in southern Spain. Kazunori Yamauchi, legendary creator of the Gran Turismo® franchise, enjoyed the privilege of a couple of laps of the Ascari Race Resort in the all-new car.

While the Gran Turismo series has reached its sixth iteration in a 15-year history, the all-new high-performance sports car represents the fifth generation of BMW M philosophy applied to the M3 – albeit with the new M4 badge distinguishing the Coupé from the four-door M3 variant.

Owners of Gran Turismo 6 now have the opportunity to experience a virtual version of the high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine housed in the BMW M4 Coupé. The M TwinPower Turbo technology produces 431hp in a car that weighs only 1,497 kilograms. With Gran Turismo 6’s new physics simulator, new aerodynamics, suspension and tyre models, and incredibly high-definition rendering, the virtual BMW M4 Coupé looks and drives just like the real thing. As well as completing this month’s special Nürburgring Superlap event, GT6 owners are able to take the new car for a spin at over 37 locations – including Ascari - with over 100 layouts to choose from. Alternatively, the stunning new car can be captured at some amazing locations in the in-game "Photo Travel" mode.

Making such an iconic model available "in-game" before its market launch reflects the mutual respect between BMW and Polyphony. “It is very exciting to virtually launch the BMW M4 Coupé in Gran Turismo 6,” explains Dr Friedrich Nitschke, President BMW M GmbH. “The BMW M4 Coupé takes motor sport technology from the race track to the road, and thousands of laps of the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife – the world’s most demanding race track – have readied the new model for that transition. I am very much looking forward to seeing how it looks and feels in Gran Turismo on the same circuit.”

The partnership is also a source of pride for president of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi: “It is always wonderful to be able to bring to life a brand new car and I would like to thank BMW for trusting us with all of the data we needed to create the BMW M4 Coupé at such an early stage. The car is fantastic. I felt very privileged to have a few laps around Ascari during the Gran Turismo 6 launch event and I am sure that Gran Turismo fans will now enjoy the same experience as well as the novelty of being among the first in the world to try the BMW M4 Coupé.”

It is a lot of fun to drive on the game too! I have noticed it wants to step out a lot. I am loving that!!!

It doesn't have any interior!!! How annoying, I was really looking forward to my virtual F80 (F30). Are there any plans to implement it?

And it's the 7spd DCT too, not 6MT like the E92 M3 in the game so no clutch pedal operation. Poor sound too. Quite a disappointing implementation actually.

Movie clip videos always look better than actual game play but in sure it will still look and play great. Going to have to hit up my neighbor for a test drive!

It's nice, fresh and stealth-looking ... we said the same when they introduced the E92 M3. The new iteration comes out, and our beloved car we adored is banished. Such is life.

Can't believe the interior hasn't been modeled... half-baked implementation. Hope it's added in short order.

Found the car understeered a good bit, but heavy throttle application could easily bring the back end around.

+1, they go to all that effort of matching BMW's release date and then make a half-assed job of it!

If that's the real sound of the engine, I am pretty disappointed.

I bought three of them, so I could have my favorite paint colors. Now I can't decide between AY, SO, and YMB.
