BMW M3 M4 Technology Days.

The launch of the new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe sees BMW M GmbH revealing an all-new interpretation of the high-performance sports car – and carrying the BMW M philosophy over into the fifth generation of the M3. More 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 will be introduced at the same time as the four-door variant, which logic dictates will be christened the BMW M3.

The new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW

M4 Coupe:

Innovative engine technology and a focus

on lightweight design.

 

The launch of the new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe sees

BMW M GmbH revealing an all-new interpretation of the high-performance

sports car – and carrying the BMW M philosophy over into the fifth generation

of the M3. More 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 will

be introduced at the same time as the four-door variant, which logic dictates

will be christened the BMW M3.

 

“Four generations of the BMW M3 have blended motor sport genes and

uncompromised everyday usability within an emotionally rich overall concept;”

explains Dr Friedrich Nitschke, President BMW M GmbH. “The BMW M3

Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe represent an ongoing commitment to this

philosophy. The engine is the heart of every M model, and the example fitted

in the two new cars combines the virtues of a high-revving naturally aspirated

unit with the strengths of turbocharger technology. An all-embracing

lightweight design concept keeps the cars’ weight to just under 1,500

kilograms. The BMW M3 and BMW M4 take motor sport technology from the

track to the road, and thousands of laps of the legendary Nürburgring

Nordschleife – the world’s most demanding race track – have readied the new

models for that transition. Meticulous and passion-fuelled development work

has underpinned the creation of two high-performance sports cars that set

new standards in terms of overall concept, precision and agility.”

The high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo

technology newly developed for the new BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4

Coupe produces maximum output of approximately 430 hp. Its peak torque

soars far beyond 500 Newton metres (369 lb-ft), 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 weight of the cars has been reduced to just under 1,500

kilograms, which helps to ensure outstanding driving dynamics and

exceptional efficiency.
