As we knew, there are multiple F80 M3 and F82 M4 cars at the Detroit auto show. One of our readers recently discovered the ‘spares’ parked in the garage underneath the Cobo Center (where the show is being held).
As luck would have it, he was driving his Le Mans Blue E92 M3 Coupe, which of course called for a photo with the new M3/M4.
We hope you’ve been enjoying our coverage from the 2014 Detroit auto show, but we’re not done yet!
We’ve just had the opportunity to speak to BMW M representatives, including BMW M CEO Dr. Nitschke, Carsten Pries (Director of Product, BMW M), Albert Biermann (Director of Engineering, BMW M) and Florian Nissl (BMW M4 Exterior Designer), on the new M3 and M4. This is what they had to say about some of the questions you had, as well as other topics in this FAQ .

We can sense the anxiousness in many of our M3/M4-owners-to-be’s posts, as there have not been many updates on pricing/ordering/delivery for the 2015 M3 and M4.
We can now provide a better timeline of what to expect. As for pricing — base pricing has been determined and options/packaging and pricing for those are being finalized currently. They will be released late this month at earliest (February is a safe bet).
Important M3/M4 Dates:

We’ve just learned the base pricing for the 2015 M3 (F80) and M4 (F82)!
2015 M3: $62,000
2015 M4: $64,200
These prices do not include the $925 destination/handling currently (always subject to change).
This represents a not insignificant increase in base price for the M3 compared to the predecessor E90 M3, but keep in mind that it now comes equipped with a carbon fiber roof and factory in inflation since the last M3 sedan.
We’ve shown you many still images of the BMW M4 (photos), M3 (photos) and M235i (photos), now watch how they were introduced to the world at today’s BMW Press Conference at the Detroit auto show.
The 2014 BMW M3 (F80) and BMW M4 (F82) have just made their debuts here at the 2014 Detroit NAIAS show. Here is our first set of photos of the stunning F80 M3 in Yas Marina Blue. It’s indeed more attractive in person as its metallic paint gives it a look and sheen that is hard to appreciate in photos.
We’ve tried to capture what we’ve seen with our eyes, so enjoy!
More photos (of M4) to come soon, so check back.
Very first looks at the production BMW M3 (F80) and BMW M4 (F82) on display at their world debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show starting tomorrow!
The upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4 will be the first production BMWs to feature a carbon fiber (CFRP) driveshaft for lighter weight and reduction in rotating mass, which which in turn results in more dynamic powertrain response.
The properties of the extremely light yet impressively durable material CFRP have allowed the engineers to follow a fundamentally new approach in the manufacture of the drive shaft. Made from CFRP, this component feeds the engine

The 2015 BMW M3 (F80) and M4 (F82) will finally make their world debuts at the 2014 Detroit NAIAS next week.
