According to many BMW M engineers, the new M3 and M4 are some of the easiest and most fun vehicles to drift, and we experienced that on the track in Portugal and at Road America. It also helps the fact that Mullins is also a stunt driver and a former Nascar pilot, so put those two together and you’re having a blast on any track.
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.
With Launch Control activated, the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe run the same distance in 3.9 seconds.
Let’s have a look.
