Present at Ronda and Ascari Race Resort for the launch of Gran Turismo 6 was a camouflaged version of the yet-to-be-launched BMW M4 Coupé. The stunning new car – shown publicly only as a concept until now – will go on sale in 2014. Thanks to an innovative collaboration with BMW “M” GmbH, Polyphony Digital enjoyed unprecedented early access to the car during its development phase in order to meticulously recreate the M4 Coupé for Gran Turismo 6. It will be made available through … CONTINUED

In a recent interview (read at http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho…d.php?t=915648) with the M division chief engineer, Albert Biermann, the article lists various performance characteristics of the car.

The speed and fuel consumption numbers are metric based in the article and when they are converted to the English system they come out 26 MPG and a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds.

While the term (est) is thrown in next to them, the fact the numbers come from the head man means to me they are reasonably accurate.

The BMW M4 Concept has been making the rounds at many venues, beginning with its debut at the Pebble Beach week three months ago.

It’s now making its auto show premiere at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the only auto show that it will be making an appearance. That’s because the next major auto show – the 2014 Detroit NAIAS in January will feature the dual world premieres of the production 2014 M3 (F80) and 2014 M4 (F82).

What will the production models bring? The M4 … CONTINUED

Picked up German magazine Sport Auto today. It features an interview with BMW M development chief Albert Biermann and a ride in the M4 with Biermann driving.

This is my translation of the major parts of this article. My apologies for bad sentences or missed meanings (I have tried my best from a hotel room after a long day at work…):

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).

Some sites have been reporting the above image as a leaked official photo, but as you can see below, it’s simply a photoshopped image of an official wallpaper image of the 435i Convertible (source) using styling elements from the M4 Concept. Hence the oddly angled front wheel.

The real M4 convertible should not be much different than the photoshopped image however, as it will share exterior styling with the production M4 Coupe, which will adopt its styling from the M4 Concept.
