New BMW M4 Coupe, Pictures & Details [Video]

2015 BMW M4 Coupe

While mechanically identical to the new M3 Sedan, the BMW M4 Coupe is different enough to warrant its own article. Two fewer doors does a lot to a car’s look, don’t you think?

At 1497 kg (3300 lb), the M4 is roughly 50 lb (23 kg) lighter than the M3 but is powered by the same 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 431 horsepower and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. Using the optional 7-speed dual clutch transmission that features a launch control and a “smokey burnout” mode, it accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds and hits an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), or 280 km/h (174 mph) when the M Driver’s Package is equipped.

For the “shift it yourself” crowd, the standard 6-speed manual gearbox allows the sprint to 100 km/h to be completed in 4.3 seconds and delivers the same top speed.

The performance-tuned sports car sits on a reworked MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension that benefits greatly from lightweight components. As a result, unsprung masses have been reduced, while rigidity has increased.

Stopping power is provided by standard compound brakes or optional lighter BMW M carbon ceramic brakes.

About those two fewer doors…the M4 looks sportier than the M3 because of them. Doors aside, it features an aggressive — compared to the regular 4 Series it is based on — front fascia, a lip spoiler, a hood bulge, a front apron, functional fender vents, flared fenders, and a diffuser with integrated quad tailpipes. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 255/40 front and 275/40 rear tires are standard, while a larger 19-inch set is optional.

The BMW M4 Coupe will make its world debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Next BMW M3 Has RWD And 4WD Versions, Which Will You Choose?

Published

New, 2019 BMW 3 Series M Performance Parts

The M3 will take a page from the latest M5, but without losing grip of its roots.

When the sixth-generation BMW M3 and M4 hit the market, they will reportedly be offered with both rear-wheel and all-wheel driver versions.

The rear-wheel drive M3 / M4 — ‘M3 and M4 Pure’, as they are known internally — are intended for purists, while those looking for outright performance will certainly go for the all-wheel drive variants.

According to , the all-wheel drive M3 / M4 can only be had with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and will have a bit more power to work with since the manual transmission in the purist M3 / M4 can’t handle the same amount of torque. It will also be a bit different aesthetically, featuring a different front fascia and set of wheels.

BMW hasn’t announced when the next M3 and M4 will debut, but it will add three additional go-faster models to the lineup overtime, including a competition package.

So, which one will it be for you — the rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive M3 / M4? Let us know in the comments below, including your reason(s) why.

BMW Creates Meteoric M850i Night Sky For Outer Space Geeks

BMW M850i Night Sky Meteorite

The unique 8 Series features meteorite inlay and 3D-printed brake calipers.

BMW has revealed the M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky, a one-off take on the new M850i created by the company’s Individual Manufaktur team for astronomy fans.

The car features an outer space theme. Inside, hunks of meteoric rock adorn the center console, start/stop button, shift lever, iDrive controller and other surfaces, while Widmanstätten surface pattern of meteorites can be found on the center console’s trim finishers, brake discs, exterior mirror caps and the front splitters.

For the non-space geeks among us, Widmanstätten patterns are the result of iron-nickel crystals forming on meteors over the course of around 10 million years and cannot be reproduced on Earth.

Not content with the space theme, BMW created new lightweight brake calipers using generative design processes (3D printing). The pieces manage to be 30 percent lighter than the 8 Series’ usual calipers without negatively affecting necessary strength characteristics.

The one-off Night Sky edition is finished in San Marino Blue metallic paint over a black base coat. Its debut coincided with a meteor shower that took place overnight from January 3 – 4, resulting from the Earth briefly passing through the orbit of the asteroid 2003 EH, with fragments from the asteroid entering our planet’s atmosphere and burning up.

Some of these meteoric fragments were incorporated into the BMW Individual M850i Night Sky’s interior.

BMW, Porsche’s Ultrafast EV Charger Adds 62 Miles In 3 Minutes

BMW, Porsche Ultrafast EV Charger

It only takes 15 minutes for an electric vehicle’s batteries to be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent capacity.

BMW and Porsche, along with several other partner companies, have made great progress developing an ultrafast EV charging system.

Their so-called FastCharge research program has resulted in a 450 kW prototype charging station that can add 62 miles (100 km) of range in just three minutes or nearly fully charge a mostly depleted battery from 10 to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.

While the ability to charge an electric car in just a few minutes will be a boon for EV owners, today’s electric vehicles aren’t able to charge at 450 kilowatts. Tesla’s vehicles, for instance, utilize a 400-volt battery configuration, but Porsche and Audi’s FastCharge tech can handle higher voltage levels of up to 920 volts, which experts believe will become the norm.

Their charging station is able to handle so much current and voltage thanks to actively cooled cables that use a circulating water-glycol solution to manage temperature. The electric vehicle must also be compatible and use intelligent charging strategy that not only precools the battery before charging begins, but also monitors cell temperature during the charging process.

Suffice it to say, the long, tedious hours that it used to take to charge an electric car are almost a thing of the past.
