Drive the new BMW M4… NOW!

But only if you have a PlayStation 3. New super-coupe makes limited appearance in GT6

If you have a PlayStation 3 and a copy of Gran Turismo 6­, then stop what you're doing, plug in your Internet, download an update and DRIVE THE NEW BMW M4 COUPE.

That's right, just one day after BMW announced official pictures and details of the new turbocharged rear-wheel-drive coupe - which we've digested for you here - the makers of GT6 have announced that, until December 26, you can drive a virtual version of the new M4.

Quite why you're still sat there reading this is beyond us, but we're told you can virtually test out the new M4 at over 37 locations in GT6, or just take your own pictures in the game's photo mode.

Polyphony Digital spent much time with BMW M GmbH during development of the new M car, so we're confident of an authentic recreation of the 431bhp 3.0-litre straight-six, dynamic attributes and - hopefully - Smokey Burnout function.

GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi - who confirmed to TG.com that GT7 will appear as early as next year - even drove the new M4 at Ascari. Lucky chap. Safe to say he was enjoying himself.

"The car is fantastic," the big man says. "I am sure that GT 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 Coupe."

Why are you still sitting there reading this?
