Article by Christian A., on August 22, 2013

The Bmw M4 Concept made its debut last weekend at Pebble Beach and details regarding the production version already emerged on the Web. According to Autoblog, the Bmw M4 Coupe a.k.a. the E92 M3 successor will be offered with a dual-clutch transmission (DCT) as standard, with no manual option. This means that the fans of the three-pedal M3 models will be disappointed.

Still, Bmw might reconsider its decision and offer a manual version of the M4. After all, the Bmw M5 and M6 were launched with automatic transmission as standard and for the 2013MY & 2014MY both M5 and M6 models offer manual option. Moreover, the M4 Coupe will drop the 4.0-liter V8 engine with its 414 hp in favor of a 3.0-liter inline-six engine with twin turbochargers.

The new engine is expected to develop 450 hp and 550 Nm of torque. Furthermore, the engine is said to have a high redline unusual for turbocharged engines. Regarding the debut, the Bmw M4 Coupe is expected to debut at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show in January.
