Sony Computer Entertainment just announced with a press release that a new ride has been added via update to the line up of Gran Turismo 6: the 2014 BMW M4 Coupé, that still isn’t available in the real world.
A seasonal event called BMW M4 Coupé Superlap has also been added to the game, giving players the chance to test their skill with the new car on the challenging Nürburgring GP curcuit. The event will be available only until December the 26th.
According the the press release, Polyphony Digital was able to gain access to the car during its development in order to precisely reproduce it in the game.
Game Director Kazunori Yamauchi accompanied the announcement with a statement:
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.
BMW M GmbH President Friedrich Nitschke had something to add as well:
It is very exciting to virtually launch the BMW M4 Coupé in Gran Turismo 6. 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.
