It was long coming, it was long expected and it is something that many enthusiasts waited for! The Coupe carrying the brand of BMW and name of M4 has appeared in front of the world finally. The BMW M4 Coupe has been revealed to carry forward the philosophy of the fifth generation M3 but in Coupe form. BMW M3 has shown its prowess to the world and with almost 40,000 of the M3 being sold as Coupe, the German giant opened a new route of developing a new car and the final result arrived as the majestic and superpowerful, M4.
BMW decided that it will classify the 4-door saloons and Coupes with different brand names and hence, the inception of the M4 happened. The BMW has tested the motor technology of the M4 for hours on the demanding track at Nurburgring.
Unveiled few months back, the M4 was still carrying the concept badge. Now the German carmaker based Bavaria, has announced the specifications of the heart of the M4 that is made-up of some top notch materials. With the extensive use of carbon fiber, BMW has managed to keep the weight of new M4 Coupe is lower by almost 80 kilos than the M3 Coupe, which the M4 replaced.
The newly minted M4 is powered by a smaller but more powerful engine. BMW has used a lighter V6 instead of V8 petrol engine and has cranked the power by twin-turbo! The power has now jacked up to 425 bhp from 414 bhp of outgoing M3 Coupe. The new model will do sprint from standstill to 100km per hour in 4.3 seconds, to make it even faster, BMW is offering the optional seven-speed automatic gearbox, which will decrease the timing by 0.2 seconds to make it 4.1 seconds.
The M4 looks brilliant, well, more than brilliant for the BMW M-series lovers. The M4 will make a market appearance somewhere in next year. Sony Playstation will feature the new M4 and 2015 M3 with the game updates released today!
