Petrol heads rejoice. The new BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe is all set to be launched in India on November 26. Both the M3 and M4 are powered by a six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology newly developed for the new M twins. The cars weigh 80 kgms less to maximise dynamic ability and efficiency.
The weight loss is attributed to increased use of lightweight materials such as carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and aluminium for a number of chassis and body components. Both models feature a carbon roof.
The new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe produce a maximum output of 431 hp and a peak torque of 550 Nm, an increase of roughly 40 per cent to the outgoing BMW M3. The engine also achieves a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions of around 25 per cent. Both the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission.
To cope with the rack track capabilities, the M cars are fitted with track-specification cooling system, ensuring optimum temperature balance for the engine, turbochargers and transmission is maintained at all times.
