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.
We’ve shown you the Yas Marina Blue F80 M3 making its world debut here at the Detroit Show, now have a look at the F82 M4 in Black Sapphire Metallic and Austin Yellow Metallic. If forced to pick, my choice would be the M4 in Black Sapphire over the Austin Yellow; it looks sinister!
As with the M3, both M4s wear the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brakes and the beautiful double-bubble carbon fiber roof.
Deliveries will also begin in June, and pricing will be announced at a later time.
