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 2014 Detroit auto show in mid-January. Expect an online reveal shortly. Deliveries of both cars will commence in early Summer of 2014.

A preview look at the BMW M4 F82 Coupe in Yas Marina Blue, a new standard color for the upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4.
The M6 Coupe with Competition Package turns in an impressive performance in this head to head test against the 911 Turbo S, Nissan GT-R Black Edition and the R8 V10 Plus.
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 a free update shortly after the release of GT6, allowing car enthusiasts around the world to drive it before it arrives in BMW showrooms. More news on the unveiling is expected soon!

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.
First look at the production BMW M Performance Exhaust for the M5 and M6.
BMW recently announced the availability of several new BMW Individual frozen (matte) colors for the M5 and M6, including Frozen Black metallic, Frozen Blue metallic, Frozen Red metallic and Frozen Brilliant White metallic.
Exclusive to the M6 (all variants) however, is the addition of Frozen Cashmere Silver metallic, which we show you for the first time from the floor of the 2013 LA Auto Show. Based on our first look, we found it to be even more attractive than Frozen Silver.

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 Coupe will essentially retain its concept form (minus some of the fancier carbon fiber add-ons), while the M3 Sedan will look just like the recently spotted Yas Marina Blue M3.
Final performance figures and specs will be revealed at Detroit and … CONTINUED
