Here are the first live photos of the BMW M3 and BMW M4 from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. In just a few hours the North American International Auto Show will kick off with a series of world premieres and amongst them are two of the most awaited BMW debuts of the year: the all new M3 Sedan and the first M4 Coupe.

As expected, BMW M3 is displayed in its launch color, Yas Marina Blue, while the M4 debuts in Austin Yellow. But to give us another look at the color palette for the two Ms, BMW also brought out a Black Sapphire M4 Coupe.


Design wise, the two M models are similar. They both sport the same front end, but with changes in the rear. The BMW M4 Coupe features an integrated rear spoiler and is made from particularly lightweight carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic. As well as performing a functional aerodynamic role, the tailgate also contributes significantly to the BMW M4’s standalone design. The M3 Sedan comes with a clearly defined Gurney spoiler at the rear.

Here is a list of the standard M3/M4 colors, Individual paints are not listed here.
