BMW releases some photos of their BMW M3 and M4 production line. The first car came out in February 2014 and it was an M4 Coupe in Austin Yellow. The cool looking coupe was introduced at the time by DTM driver Martin Tomczyk.
For those that are unfamiliar with BMW’s production work, the BMW F82 M4 production vehicles are made in their home town, Munich. They are built on a separate line from the “regular” BMW cars.
The BMW M4 Coupe is joined by a range of four models which are also made on the same production band at the main plant in Munich. It takes approximately 40 hours for the entire production of a single M4, where a special step in its production is the installation of the standard carbon-fiber roof.
The actual installation of the roof is done by robots, but the finish is completed by hand. It takes a couple of expert hands to install this weight-saving performance part to the new generation BMW M4.
For young aspiring engineers, the BMW main plant in Munich is truly a remarkable place. It’s where high technology joins the German engineering expertise and the pin-point precision guided robots found on the production floor.
The BMW Munich plant production makes approx. 247,000 vehicles and approx. 465,000 engines each year. It’s built in a highly residential area with all the possible safety, ecological and human aspects used to create an eco-friendly, high efficiency production environment. With around 9,000 employees and 800 trainees, it’s a buzzing place of excellence any BMW enthusiast should visit.
