BMW unveiled all-new M Performance Parts for the
M4 Coupe, designed to give the German sports car a sharper sporting edge.
As well as design upgrades for the interior and exterior, the M Performance Parts range (which will be displayed for the first time at the Essen Motor Show at the end of November) also includes functional accessories which boost the performance and inject more emotional appeal into the engine's soundtrack.
New Aerodynamic Components
In addition to further enhancing the muscular athleticism, BMW also claims the M Performance aerodynamic components also enhance the airflow at high speed. Customers can choose from a selection of items including add-on parts in carbon for the side sections of the front bumper, a front attachment made from polyurethane (PUR), a carbon rear diffuser and a carbon rear spoiler. Also, tri-color side decals with "M Performance" lettering are available.
M Performance Steering Wheel with Race Display
The BMW M Performance steering wheel with Alcantara covering, carbon trim and Race Display does its bit to ensure the BMW M4 delivers a particularly full-blooded driving experience.
The driver can use the integrated display at the top of the steering wheel rim to view gear change signals and lateral/longitudinal acceleration figures, among other things. Sport mode gives the driver access to a stopwatch function with displays for hours, minutes and seconds. Lateral/longitudinal acceleration figures are also shown. During committed track sessions, Race mode allows lap times to be displayed and stored in minutes, seconds and hundredths of seconds. The top speeds and maximum lateral/longitudinal acceleration figures for the most recent 50 laps completed can also be stored.
M Performance Exhaust System
The BMW M Performance rear silencer uses optimized exhaust gas channeling to generate an "emotion-rich engine soundtrack" worthy of the twin-turbo straight-six powerplant.
The lightweight flap control exhaust system comprises a stainless-steel exhaust system and a silencer made completely from titanium and displaying M Performance lettering when viewed from the rear. It weighs around eight kilograms less than the standard item.
The driver can choose from two settings for the sound characteristics of the BMW M Performance silencer system. In Standard mode, the sound development is much more dramatic than that of a regular model, but still suitable for everyday use. In SPORT and SPORT+ modes the development of power is accompanied by a stunningly powerful, emotionally rich soundtrack, which gives the driver extremely clear feedback on engine load.
