The BMW M4 Coupé that was first introduced to the world through Gran Turismo last year (http://www.gran-turismo.com/jp/news/00_5667014.html) is planned for inclusion in another version, as a safety car based on the “BMW M4 M Performance Edition”. The base BMW M4 M Performance Edition will also be displayed from November 4th at the festival of custom automotive parts, the SEMA show hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Until now the only safety car in Gran Turismo has been the R34 GT-R Pace Car, included in the lineup from the “Gran Turismo Concept 2001 TOKYO” released in 2002. The car is still popular among online event organizers, but with the inclusion of the M4 safety car their events should take on a new level of realism.
Followed by FIA GT3 cars, you can get nice back camera style angles like this:
Also in this update, tuning and customization parts for the M4 will also be unlocked.
Aero parts made available in the GT Auto store will include the version used by the safety car, plus another additional design. The car modeling team is currently working on its design, so you can look forward to that as well. Also, in “Other” parts, you can repaint BMW’s legacy kidney grill to black. And of course you can change to bigger wheels!
With more available tuning options, the high performance M4 can be taken a step further. Details like aerodynamic hood pins give it that competitive look, and you can customize the car to suit your needs in the world of Gran Turismo, whether it be for drifting or just looks!
Also, we’ll be soon be updating a report of the Polyphony Digital car modeling team visiting the SEMA show! There’s sure to be many customized M4’s this year, even in real life!
Please look forward to the update!
