The M4 will not hit dealers until next Summer, but the rumor mill is already churning for a lightweight track model.
Carsales claims BMW M sources have hinted at a lightweight track focused M4 coming in 2016 as part of the celebrations for BMW’s 100th birthday.
Taking after the E92 M3 GTS, the lightweight M4 is rumored to feature two seats only, more power, less weight (target below 1400 kg / 3086 lb) and manual transmission only.
BMW M will attempt to achieve this weight by expanding the … CONTINUED
Now that much tech specs for the F80 M3 / F82 M4 have been revealed, do you perceive the M3 any differently when seeing it in action?
We can finally be sure that what we are seeing and hearing is an M3 powered by its 3.0L bi-turbo inline 6 S55 engine outputting approximately 430 hp, far beyond 369 lb-ft, and to a redline just north of 7500 RPM.
Here is the F80 M3 prototype continuing some final testing on the Nurburgring ahead of its January debut at … CONTINUED
A photo journal from some UK members: two M3s and three 1Ms – a genuine on-the-limit adventure through the entire European Alps from France to Austria, a visit to BMW and Porsche Museums, and the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
We have both good and bad news on Active Sound technology in the M3/M4. For those unfamiliar, Active Sound technology was first introduced in the M5/M6 and has extended to other models such as the M135i. The system modulates existing frequencies, which are played over the stereo speakers at varying sound levels based on throttle input, speed, and engine revs, as well driving the mode (louder in Sport and Sport+ settings). See BMW’s original press release on this.
So, the bad news is yes, the M3/M4 … CONTINUED
Now that the M3 M4 technology day has come and gone, with access being granted to the press for the first time, BMW has released a slew of official track video footage of the prototypes. And since these are officially released videos, they feature some of the best quality video and audio yet of the F80 M3 / F82 M4.
For all the videos that have come about from the recent M3/M4 technology day, check the Videos section of our Tech Guide thread.
We’ve now had confirmation of the s55 engine’s sightly above 7500 RPM redline via the official released specs, but seeing as how the tachometer and redline were ever elusive all these months and years of spy photos, we’re happy to finally share with you images of the M3/M4′s redline.
Though the actual redline starts at the 7500 mark, expect the rev limiter to kick in a bit after that.
You’ve already seen the M3/M4 technical presentation slides in our Official Tech Guide Thread. Now view the presentation as it was meant to be digested – in animated form.
Who doesn’t like fancy 360 degree rotating views and animated technical blow-ups… we definitely do.
