BMW releases the first official teaser for the 2015 BMW M3 F80 sedan and M4 F82 Coupe.
Although we only see the cars’ silhouettes, the lighting used to highlight the car’s shapes are blue and yellow, indicating that the marketing launch cars will be in Yas Marina Blue for the F80 M3 and Austin Yellow for the F82 M4.
Look for the reveal this Thursday, December 12!
The 2015 Mustang has just been revealed and Ford has revealed that it was benchmarked against the E90/E92 M3 during development. Together with its new independent rear suspension, will the Mustang give the upcoming M4 coupe a run for its money? Or, does it already lag behind the upcoming M3 and M4 by virtue of having been benchmarked against a now discontinued model?
We’ve just spied some latest M4 and M3 prototypes. The M4 Coupe is seen in Sakhir Orange while the M3 is painted in Alpine White. Both cars feature the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brakes.
The gauges can be seen in the M4 coupe and they look to be the same as the ones we previously showed you (see photos reposted below), with a redline starting around 7500 RPM (rev limiter to kick in a bit after that).
Both cars will have their world premieres at the … CONTINUED

Have a listen at the F80 M3 with its bi-turbo s55 inline 6 cylinder engine and exhaust during a cold start.
This M3 sounds a bit ‘off’, particularly during idle, so perhaps the exhaust is still being tuned on this car or the recording device has distorted the actual sound. The M3/M4 has sounded better in previous videos (reposted below).
