Unfortunately the new BMW M4 is a tough car to handle by many drivers out there. The torque available from low rpms and the high power, couple with a happy tail vehicle, make the new M4 a beast on the road and overjoy or spirited driving can lead to crashes like this. According to AutoGespot, the car was used for test drives to women and in between refills, it was driven by a mechanic to the nearest gas station.

What happened next is unclear, but the result can be seen here: the Alpine White M4 Coupe with the ///M livery on it ended up crashing into a tree. Judging by the photos, the impact was brutal and the car has sustained tens of thousands of dollars in damages, and likely would end up being written off as a total loss.

With less than a year on the market, the new M3 and M4 seem to be involved in more crashes than we would expect, just last year we saw a California driver jumping a median and just before that a fierce crash happened in Germany where the M4 saved the life of many people.

The BMW F82 M4 comes with a 3.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine that delivers 425 horsepower and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the car to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in mere 3.8 seconds with Launch Control. Pretty fast by any standards and often too fast and furious for many drivers.

Maybe a BMW M Performance School would help…

    It’s a car that wants to be on a race track. Maybe a bit overkill for everyday driving.

    Future salvage title, some lucky Dutchman is going to get a nice bargain.

    This clown probably full-throttled it and lost the back end.

    M4s are terrible! And you know what i hate the most about this car? Its super terrible sounds. It is like its about to fall apart.

  5. Levi says:

    Customer wants more torque, then he can’t handle it. So he asks for AWD. Then he thinks he is invincible and the same thing happens.

    Any update if 2016 models will include competition package? Thanks.

    I have driven this car for 8 months and driven it like an arsehole many time but never lost control. I have neurofibromatosis so my depth perception and motor skills are horrendous. Most times I cant even walk a straight line being totally sober. What I am trying to say is you got to be one terrible driver if a retard like me can drive this car hard with no problems. This car practically drives itself. I am pretty sure that all these accidents are related to idiots turning off the traction control.
