Article by Christian Andrei, on January 15, 2014

BMW launched the 2014 M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and as expected it made quite a buzz. For those who still don’t know, both vehicle are powered by a high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that generates a maximum output of 431 hp and peak torque of 550 Nm (406 lb-ft).

With the new engine, the 2014 BMW M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission. According to BMW, one of the primary objectives in the development of the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe was to ensure that the new sports cars will offer impressive race track capability.

As a result, the M3 and M4 are offered with a track-specification cooling system, which keeps the optimum temperature balance for the engine, turbochargers and transmission. Moreover, BMW engineers were helped by BMW Motorsport’s professional racing drivers during the development phase, for fine-tuning of the cars.
