The new generation of the BMW M4 Coupe will be substantially lighter than the standard 4-Series on which is based.
The German based automaker BMW is focusing on lightness when it comes to the new M4 Coupe, meaning that the performance two-door vehicle will be even more maneuverable than its previous version, the M3 Coupe. The brand new BMW M4 Coupe will also be substantially lighter than the 4-Series Coupe, on which is based, and it will also get more power under its hood. The announcement has been made by the company’s product manager for small and medium cars, Matt Collins, who has recently spoken to Top Gear.
“I think we’re really focusing on making this car as light as we can. We’re not going to go halfway house with the ‘real’ car, because we’d like to get it as low as possible in the first place. The proper car will showcase a real reduction in weight”, said Matt Collins.
As a quick reminder, the new BMW M4 Coupe will be powered by a 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine, which is good for 450 HP (335 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque. The model will also get an aggressive exterior design and some other tweaks, which will set it apart from the 4-Series Coupe. The new BMW M4 Coupe should go on sale in mid 2014.
