Gran Turismo 6 was updated with this week’s PlayStation Network update, adding in the BMW M4 Coupé and allowing gamers a first glimpse at the 2014 vehicle.
Polyphony Digital has also released a two week event in celebration of the new car: the BMW M4 Coupé Superlap challenge will take place on the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit.
This is the world’s first proper look at the BMW M4 Coupé, which previously existed in concept form only; it made an appearance at the GT6 launch in Spain, but was camouflaged, although that didn’t stop series creator Kazunori Yamauchi doing a few laps.
“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,” Yamauchi said.
“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.”
The BMW M4 Coupé boasts a high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine, with M TwinPower Turbo technology producing 431hp in a car that weighs only 1,497 kilograms.
Gran Turismo 6 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive available now.
