BMW DTM drivers Martin Tomczyk Fanseite and Timo Glock join the international media at the launch of the new 2015 BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe in Portugal. Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is hosting the press drives of the new M brothers while giving the DTM drivers a place where they can have some fun.
The images below show some serious drifting done by the two BMW drivers and demonstrate the sporty abilities of the new M3 and M4. Only if there were some video footage as well….
Just a quick recap on the power delivery. After ditching the amazing V8 naturally-aspirated engine, the new M3 and M4 use a 3.0 liter turbocharged engine that produces 425 HP and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The car weighs under 1,500 kg (3,300 lbs). From 0-100 km/h (0-62), the 2014 BMW M4 runs in 4.1 seconds with DCT while the M3 runs the same distance in 4.3 seconds, with the same transmission.
The F80 2015 BMW M3 Sedan will cost $62,000 and 2015 BMW M4 has a base price $64,200. Destination and handling is $925.
