BMW tests M Lap Timer App with M4 Coupe at Brands Hatch

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Technology, Videos, BMW, Luxury



The 2015 BMW M4 looks to include all the necessary ingredients to offer dynamite driving experience. It's an M car after all. But in today's constantly connected world, the experience of hurtling a car around a track isn't always enough.

We want data, and while there are some solid telemetry apps available for smartphones (notably Harry's GPS LapTimer), manufacturers have been a bit slower to develop their own dedicated mobile telemetry trackers for their performance cars. With the new M4, though, BMW is taking the plunge, allowing drivers to track their lap progress through a new app, creatively called the M Lap Timer.

To show off the program, BMW has recruited touring car racer Andy Priaulx to perform a fast lap in an M4 at the UK's Brands Hatch circuit. The accompanying video doesn't do much to show off the app in action. Rather, it give us a stylized look at the metrics as Priaulx hustles BMW's hottest 4 Series coupe around the circuit.

Of course, the Lap Timer is something we hope to sample as soon as we get our first turn in the M4. Until then, have a look below to see just what it's capable of.Continue reading BMW tests M Lap Timer App with M4 Coupe at Brands Hatch
