BMW M3 and M4 Coupe announced for Australia image

BMW has announced its plans to introduce the new M3 Sedan and its two-door brother, the M4 Coupe, to Australia.

The four-door BMW M3 Sedan will carry a starting price of 156,900 AUD, once it will reach dealerships, while the M4 Coupe will cost 10,000 USD more. This is more than the previous M3 generation, which was priced at 155,100 AUD. Both vehicles get the 19-inch M double spoke alloy wheels, the M bonnet and mirror casings, the rear diffuser, the rear apron, the quad exhaust pipes, the new front aprons and the side panels, made from aluminum.

Eight colors are available for the M3 and M4 and they are both getting the keyless entry and start, the dual-zone climate control, the full electric adjustable front seats with lumbar support and seat heating, the hands-free operated tailgate and more. Power is being provided by the same 3.0 liter TwinTurbo six-cylinder engine, which is generating a total of 431 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 4.1 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). This can be raised to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the M Driver’s Package.
