The latest BMW M4 GT4, G82 generation, will make its formal sim racing debut in RaceRoom this week.

    While the outgoing F82 M4 GT4 is present in many platforms, from Automobilista 2 to iRacing, this will mark the first time the current model has been licenced and recreated virtually for a simulation.

    It is also the car used by, with class-related modifications, content creators Jimmy Broadbent, Steve Alvarez Brown aka Super GT and Nürburgring Nordschleife aficionado Misha Charoudin. Handily, RaceRoom will offer the trio’s Bilstein livery to boot (featured image).

    Inside, the Fanatec steering wheel shared with its GT3 brethren and available to purchase for sim racing use, has been modelled.

    Alongside the contemporary M4 is the meme-tastic M8 GTE – harking back to a ruleset now replaced by ubiquitous GT3s, when Munich decided to take a cruising coupe racing.

    Rounding out the set of three is the beginner-friendly BMW M2 CS Racing (F87), its squat stance, shorter dimensions and modest power output make it, in theory, an ideal starter car. Close races and slipstream battles abound.

    As per KW Studios’ regular release pattern, there will be a pack that includes all three cars for an introductory price of $11.90/£9.35, or each is available individually for $5.40/£4.25. Each additional livery (outside of the one included) will also be available for $0.31/£0.25.

    All three are available for a free test drive.

    It follows the recent release of the Pau street circuit and Ferrari 296 GT3 liveries in March and the showcasing of experimental drift content at last month’s Tuning World Bodensee event. Notable quality-of-life changes have also been implemented for the platform, including an updated Algarve International Circuit.

    Further ‘endurance’ content teased

    RaceRoom has an eclectic mix of vehicles, but a modern representation of endurance racing’s upper echelons is missing.

    Sitting at the top of its line-up are cars like the Audi R18, Mazda RT24 P DPI, or the Chevrolet Daytona Prototype, used for longer community races. Cool, but hardly current, with LMDh machines so far elusive.

    The blog post announcing the M8 GTE ends with: “But of course, we are not stopping here. We’ve already licensed more endurance-focused cars. Stay tuned to hear more about that in the future!”
