For those wanting to shine on the track all the while keeping an intense ride on backroads, the BMW M4’s excellent handling and power may just be the best bet for you. However, if you’re looking for a car to provide day-to-day transportation with comfort in mind, this may not suit you well.
Aesthetically, the new BMW M4 has the characteristics and proportions of the 4-series in its heart, but with the dial increased to 11. A quick glance underneath the hood reveals that it kicks with extra power, has a more aerodynamic and aggressive set of body work, and a tail to signal that track-bred look.
Gaining a much tighter suspension tuning, more power, together with a dual clutch transmission and a myriad of other upgrades, the M4 can be considered as the high-performance version of BMW’s 4-series coupe. It strikes that rare balance between an everyday-commute type of vehicle but can also excel on the track. Although the performance of the BMW M4 is identical to the M3, the latter comes with four doors.
Prepare for an explosive performance and some renowned handling capabilities as you get behind the wheel of the M4. A 425-hp twin-turbo inline six-cylinder gives power to the track-day hero. The engine is mated with either a paddle-shifted seven-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and either an all-wheel or rear-wheel drive. To cut off the excess weight in demand for better tuning, BMW M4’s components are constructed using carbon fiber—including its driveshaft. The BMW M4 surely lives up and pays homage to the performance of the M cars before it, all the while providing you the option of a coupe or a convertible.
