2014 Detroit Motor Show LIVE: BMW M4 Coupe image

BMW has made the public debut of the new M4 Coupe during the 2014 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit.

The brand new BMW M4 Coupe has been showcased along with the M3 Sedan in Motor City in order to be compared to its four-door brother by people seeing it for the first time. The BMW M4 has an aggressive exterior body kit, a carbon fiber roof, which is shaving off 6 kg (13 lbs) from its weight, 18-inch M alloy wheels, with 19-inch available as an option, an Active M Differential, electronic power steering with three selectable driving modes, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ and much more.

Power to the BMW M4 Coupe is being provided by the same engine as the one found on the new M3, the 3.0 liter six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo. The unit is rated at 431 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 4.3 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Power is being sent to the RWD through an optional 7-speed M DCT, with which the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 4.1 seconds, or a 6-speed manual transmission. Order the M Driver’s package and the top speed will be raised to 280 km/h (174 mph).
