Hungarian motoring journalist Nino Karotta isn’t an unknown name in this very small and closely knitted fraternity of car enthusiasts. Back in 2012, his BMW M5 (F10M) video made news (for all the right reasons – tyre-slaying and overall narration), and recently (about a month ago), his BMW M4 (F82) video did the same. And although the views count is still increasing, the month-old video is easily the best way to end the week on a high note.
While it’s best to not put in words what the video offers, here’s a little information that should ensure a click on the play button at the end of the article. To keep it short and simple, the 9-minute long video features a white M4, amalgamation of day and night shots, nice-ish locations, a good amount of information with Nino Karotta behind the wheel, and obviously, some sideways action.
While the car is said to be slightly difficult on the limit in the wet, the video, shot in dry and away from the racetrack, showcases enough things to make you fall in love with the M4. Right from the rather simple-looking white colour to the way it’s driven away from the urban jungle – everything works so well.
To recapitulate, the BMW M4 marks the departure of BMW M3 Coupe (just a name chance, essentially); adoption of turbocharged, downsized engines in the M3 range; and new sharper styling. The front-axle grip is said to be phenomenal while the rear grip less so, which becomes a little worse in the rain. This all is, of course, about driving on the car on a race-track, and fittingly on the limit.
It is powered by a 3-litre, twin-turbocharged inline-six petrol engine that makes 431hp between 5,500 and 7,300 rpm, and maximum torque of 550Nm between a lowly 1,850 and 5,500 rpm. The 2-door coupe is priced at Rs 1.25 crores in India, and is available across all BMW dealerships in the country. The 4-door saloon M3 is also available, at Rs 1.23 crores.
