BMWBLOG went to Algarve Race Track in Portugal to test drive the all-new BMW M4 Coupe. To make the best out of those hot laps, we also jumped aboard the BMW M4 Safety Car with rally driver and BMW Professional Instructor, Claudiu David, who gave us memorable rides.
Just a quick recap on the power delivery. After ditching the amazing V8 naturally-aspirated engine, 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.
The F80 2015 BMW M3 Sedan will cost $62,000 and 2015 BMW M4 has a base price $64,200. Destination and handling is $925.
