At the unveiling of the much anticipated Gran Turismo 6 game in the beautiful, historic city of Ronda, a camouflaged BMW M shared front stage with legendary Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
BMW M confirms that the first-ever BMW M4 Coupe will make its appearance in Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation 3 soon after the game launch.
The new BMW M3 and M4 will on sale in Summer 2014.
The new engine in the M3 and M4 (S55 3.0 liter turbo) sees a slight power upgrade over the previous V8 to approximately 430 hp, while peak torque has been increased by well over 30 per cent to substantially more than 500 Newton meters, and is maintained over a very wide rev band. The new powerplant also boasts excellent fuel consumption, with an improvement of more than 25 per cent over the previous model’s figures, while emissions are already EU6-compliant.
In January, the new BMW M3 and M4 will make their official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
