Official pricing details for the 2014 BMW M3 Sedan and 2014 BMW M4 Coupe in the United States have just been revealed, and unsurprisingly, both will cost you over $60k to purchase.
More specifically, the new M3 starts at $62,000 while the M4 has a base price of $64,200. Both cars then incur a $925 destination and handling fee. In addition to the release of this pricing information, the official ordering guide for both cars have been revealed showing some of the key options available for both the new M3 and M4.
Starting on the colour front, both the new BMW M3 and M4 can be purchased in any one of eight exterior colours. They include Alpine White, Mineral Grey Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic, Sakhir Orange Metallic, Austin Yellow Metallic and Yas Marina Blue Metallic and a couple others. Moving to the interior, the 2014 BMW M3 and 2014 BMW M4 can be optioned in any of nine leather/cloth trims.
Arguably more important than the visual options available are the various technologies available. Some of the most notable ones include active blind spot detection and departure warning with collision mitigation and side and top view cameras. These features come part as the Driver Assistance Plus package. The Lighting Package features full LED lights complete with automatic high beams.
As a reminder, 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.
Both cars will have their European debuts at the Geneva Motor Show 2014.
