It’s not a secret anymore that the all-new BMW M4 Coupe is lighter and more efficient than its predecessor, the M3 Coupe, but today we found out some numbers. Sport Auto magazine managed to drive the new M4 Coupe on the Nurburgring and they lapped the well-known German race track in 7 minutes and 52 seconds.

This means that the new BMW M4 Coupe is 13 seconds faster than the car it replaces, the M3 Coupe. For those who don’t know, the 2014 BMW M4 Coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine that delivers 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

With these numbers, the M4 Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph). With the optional M Driver’s Package, top speed can be increased to 280 km/h or 174 mph.

The old BMW M3 Coupe used a 4.0-liter V8 high-revving engine that delivered 420 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The M3 Coupe is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
