The first pix of the upcoming BMW M3 sedan and BMW M4 coupe have been leaked online, which probably means an official unveiling is imminent – could we be looking at a Detroit debut?
BMW M’s new twins have traditional M car cues – a bespoke front end, wider fenders, quad tailpipes at the rear, and like the last generation where the M3 Sedan was given the front end of the 3-Series Coupe, the 3-Series wears the 4-Series front end.
The interior shot shows us a redline of 7,500rpm, with a 500rpm ‘yellow zone’ just before that. The newly developed S55B30 engine 3.0 litre twin turbo engine will produce 430 horsepower at 7,300rpm and over 500Nm of torque from as low as 1,800rpm up to 5,200rpm. It will be mated to a six-speed manual or an optional seven-speed M DCT with DriveLogic and launch control
