than 40,000 examples of the fourth-generation BMW M3 Coupe were built, and now
the BMW M4 Coupe is poised to continue this history of success. The "M4" badge
is a reference to the model series that provides the basis for the new M model.
And for the first time, the Coupe has been introduced at the same time as the
four-door variant, which logic dictates has been christened the BMW M3.
The high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology newly developed for the new BMW M4 Coupe produces maximum output of 425 hp. Its peak torque soars to 406 lb-ft (550 Nm), outstripping the figures recorded by the outgoing BMW M3 by well over 30 per cent. And yet the engine also achieves a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions of around 25 per cent. The kerb weight of the car has been reduced to just 3466 lb (1572 kg), which helps to ensure outstanding driving dynamics and exceptional efficiency.
The main rivals of the M3/M4 are Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, Audi RS4 and Lexus RC F.
BMW M4 Features Numerous Aerodynamics Measures
Details such as the powerfully formed front apron, smooth underbody and integrated spoiler lip at the rear of the BMW M4 Coupe reduce lift by an equal degree at the front and rear axle and produce optimum handling attributes. These examples underline in familiar fashion the success of M engineers in reconciling the requirements of everyday use with the demands of action on the race track. Elements like the Air Curtain and M gills with integrated Air Breather rearwards of the front wheels minimize turbulence in the front wheel arches. And, together with the smoothly sculpted exterior mirrors, they are also highly distinctive design features of the BMW M4 Coupe.
Interior with Motor Sport Ambience
The BMW M4 Coupe also stands out with an interior that is exclusive and functional in equal measure. For example, the M Sport leather multifunction steering wheel is fitted as standard, as are bucket-style M sports seats and the BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite. Like the front seats, the distinctively contoured backrests of the rear seats also offer exceptional lateral support. They are made from a lightweight composite material and can be folded in a 60:40 split. This gives the 2015 BMW M4 a degree of variability and everyday usability that is well beyond the norm for high-performance sports cars of their level.
