BMW Announces Technical Specifications of the M3 and M4
|   Friday, September 27, 2013
BMW has just announced the technical details of the fifth generation M3 and M4, sparking rumors that a probable launch date is fast approaching. Both these vehicles draw power from a twin turbocharged 3.0 liter six cylindered engine developing 450 BHP. As expected, both vehicles will join BMW's official lineup simultaneously while mechanical components of these vehicles are close to being similar.

Use of reinforced plastic and carbon fiber reduces the weight of this car which sports a total body weight of 1,500 kg.
Use of advanced technology gives it an edge in its segment while BMW made sure, both these vehicles manage to hold up to their M Series nameplate. BMW has borrowed latest technology from its motorsports department while designing this car and high levels of technical details can be found on both these cars.

BMW has installed its six speed manual transmission system on both these vehicles although automated options are available as well. A seven speed dual clutch DSG transmission system is available while advanced launch control enables tailor made driving for different situations. Various drive modes enable better drive feel and control while an optional M+ Sport drive mode makes sure you can keep this vehicle on asphalt even in wet conditions.

The M3 and M4 features three selectable modes – Sport+, Sport and Comfort, which enhances the general drive experience. Handling wise these cars are far superior to the last generation M3 while technologically they are marvelous too. Electric steering support has been added to this vehicle like Porsche's new 911 Cayman. This makes for hardcore drive dynamics while keeping fuel economy intact. We hope these vehicles hold their ground dynamically while keeping up to the expectations of the crowd.

A huge improvement in general fuel economy is expected while the additional 425 BHP should keep power figures intact. Driving a car such as a BMW M Series is always fun while the company has not let us down till now. Therefore, expectations are always high when we head about a new M Series. BMW has been tempting us with news regarding the M4 for a long time now although no final drive test reviews have been revealed.

We would like to get behind the wheel of one of these cars soon to determine their complete on road capability. Lighter exterior and interior along with a more pronounced drive train gives the new M3 and M4 their characteristics while high decibel exhaust sounds ring a bell with the driving enthusiasts. This roaring V8 screams for more and should like to be pushed to its limits.

Despite huge increase in power displacement, this new range of engines is 25 percent more fuel efficient and environment friendly and this should give BMW an added edge over its competitors. An intercooler has been added to the engine to provide the turbo charger with sufficient amounts of cool air. BMW is German engineering at its best and we have proof that the fifth generation M4 and M4 are sure to do well in practical situations.
