The brand new BMW M4 Coupe has been finally unveiled ahead of its public debut scheduled for next month’s NAIAS, in Detroit.
Along with the new generation of the the German based automaker has also presented the first official images and details of the new M4 Coupe. The model is getting exactly the same features as its four-door coupe brother and these goodies include the MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension, a fresh set of standard 18-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 255/40 and 275/40 front to rear tires, with 19-inch available an option, and much more.
The BMW M4 Coupe is powered by a 3.0 liter TwinTurbo inline six-cylinder high-revving engine, which is producing a total output of 431 HP (317 kW) and it has a peak torque of 550 Nm (406 lb-ft), which is exactly the same as the new M3. Power is being sent to the rear-wheel drive through a seven-speed M DCT transmission, with launch control, while stopping power will be provided by standard compound brakes or by optional lighter carbon ceramic BMW M carbon brakes.
The new BMW M4 Coupe is approximately 80 kg (176 lbs) lighter than the model it’s replacing and this is done by using some lightweight materials throughout its body, including the carbon fiber roof. As far as fuel efficiency goes, the BMW M4 Coupe is burning exactly the same amount of fuel as the new M3, which means 8.3 liters of fuel every 100 km (34 mpg UK / 28.3 mpg US) with the DCT and 8.8L / 100km (32.1 mpg UK / 26.7 mpg US) with the manual transmission.
Production of the BMW M4 Coupe will be made in Munich, unlike its four-door brother, which will be assembled soon in Regensburg. Its public debut will be made next month, during the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, when more details about it will be announced, including its price list.
