The BMW M4 is a high-performance version of the 4 Series automobile developed by BMW's in-house motorsport division, the BMW M GmbH. Part of the renumbering that BMW splits the 3 Series coupe and convertible models to the 4 Series (to further differentiate with the 3 Series sedans), the M4 replaces the M3 Coupe and Convertible models. Upgrades over the standard 4-Series include: a very powerful and responsive, twin turbocharged engine; improved handling, suspension, and braking systems; aerodynamic body enhancements; interior/exterior accents with the tri-colour "M" (Motorsport) badging; the significantly reduced weight compared to the standard 4 series and its predecessor with an all-new stiffer chassis and extensive use of carbon fiber, especially the roof of the car. The car's pricing starts at $65,700 [€58,559].
On September 25, 2013, BMW released technical specifications of the M4 powered by a M-tuned S55B30 engine, although it is a 3.0 L inline engine. BMW states that it is completely different to the N55 engine seen in other BMW 35i models, this engine has been built specifically for the new M4, displacing 3.0 L (180 cu in) and redlining at 7,500 rpm. The rev limiter coming in at 7,600 rpm. The engine uses two mono-scroll turbochargers. The power is rated at 425 hp (317 kW) while torque will be 550 N·m (410 lb·ft). The weight of the 6 speed manual M4 is 3,556 lb (1,613 kg). Both 6-speed manual and 7-speed M-DCT transmissions are available. The 7-speed M-DCT transmission accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The 6-speed manual transmission does 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.
