The videos below give us some unique footage from the Nurburgring where BMW DTM drivers have been testing the new BMW M4 and M3, and also a series of videos showing onboard impressions and engine animation.
The high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology newly developed for the new BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe produces maximum output of approximately 430 hp. Its peak torque soars far beyond 500 Newton meters (369 lb-ft), out stripping the figures recorded by the outgoing BMW M3 by well over 30 per cent.
And yet the engine also achieves a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions of around 25 per cent. The weight of the cars has been reduced to just under 1,500 kilograms, which helps to ensure outstanding driving dynamics and exceptional efficiency.
So how does the BMW M4 handle on the most famous race track in the world? Let’s have a look.
