Just launched at the ongoing Detroit Motor Show 2014 after being revealed late last month, both the new 2014 BMW M3 and 2014 BMW M4 are promising to be absolutely brutal performance machines. Set to hit the U.S. market later this year as 2015 models, pricing details for both the new M3 and M4 have been leaked courtesy of BMW Blog.
First off, the new BMW M3 will start at $62,000 in the U.S. with a destination and handling charge of $925. By comparison, the new M4 will cost just that little bit extra with pricing starting at $64,200. It too features a $925 destination and handling fee.
As for colours, both the new M3 and M4 are available in any one of the following eight colours; Alpine White, Sakhir Orange, Black Sapphire, Silverstone, Mineral White, Mineral Grey, Austin Yellow and Yas Marina Blue.
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 this 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 which 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.
