BMW has recently announced the production end of the outgoing M3 Coupe, after almost 6 years and 40,000 units sold.
The German based automaker is getting ready to introduce the brand new M4 Coupe, replacing the outgoing M3 Coupe, and in order to make room for the new model, BMW has announced the production end of the current M3 Coupe. According to the car manufacturer, more than 40,000 units of the BMW M3 Coupe have been sold since 2007, with an extra 10,000 sedans and 16,000 convertibles, but the drop tops will remain in production until September.
The brand new BMW M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible will replace the outgoing M3 Coupe and M3 Convertible and the two models will receive a 3.0 liter six-cylinder twin turbo engine under their hoods, which is expected to produce a total output of 450 HP (335 kW) and 550 Nm of torque (405 lb-ft). The same unit will also power the future M3 Sedan, which should be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The new BMW M3 should be launched in early 2014, while the M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible shortly after.
