The BMW M4 Coupé is one of the most eagerly anticipated cars of 2014 and is on display at the Detroit Motor Show 2014. The M4 is of course the M3 Coupe replacement which is poised to take on the Audi RS5, Mercedes C63 Coupe, that will soon be refreshed, and the new Lexus RC F which is also at the show!
Under the hood, both the new M3 sedan and M4 coupe are fitted with a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine revving to 7,600 rpm and producing an impressive 431 hp between 5,390 rpm and 7,000 rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque from a low 1,800 rpm to 5,390rpm. That torque figure is available across a broad rev range and is an improvement over the outgoing BMW E92 M3 of 40 per cent.
As a result of brand new powerplant, both the 2014 BMW M3 and 2014 BMW M4 will sprint to 100 km/h from a standstill in just 4.1 seconds when equipped with the optional seven-speed M double clutch transmission. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h but this can be increased to 280 km/h with the optional M driver’s package.
This rather stealthy Black Sapphire example is not the only M4 on show. There is also a very striking Austin Yellow M4 at Detroit!
