Another BMW M4 Coupe ends up in a car accident. After we’ve seen a totaled M4 in Munich, now another one goes in a ditch somewhere in France. Not many details are known about the accidents and judging by the two shots below the M4 doesn’t seem to have been completely damaged.
While the M engineers describe the M3/M4 as one of the easiest M models to drift, they also mention the danger that comes from a more powerful and lighter car than its predecessor.
The 2015 BMW M4 is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six which makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft. That’s barely up from the last-gen M3′s peak 414 hp, but up significantly in the torque department.
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.
