The Dutch folks at Autoblog are reviewing the all-new 2015 BMW M4 Coupe.
The second member of the M4 family, the F82 Coupe, had its international premiere at the Portimao race track in Portugal. After ditching the amazing V8 naturally-aspirated engine, many journalists have wondered if the the new M3 and M4 with a 3.0 liter turbocharged engine will still deliver the ///M experience we all become accustomed to.
The S55 engine produces 425 HP (430 hp in Europe) 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. With launch control, bot the M3 and M4 run the same distance in less than 4 seconds.
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. In Germany, the base price for the M4 Convertible is 78,200 euros for the version with manual transmission, and 82,100 euros for the M4 convertible with a seven-speed DCT.
