Marc Marquez gets a new BMW M4 CS after winning 2017 MotoGP’s Best Qualifier award

There’s currently no one faster than Marc Marquez in the MotoGP World Championship qualifiers. For now, the Spanish world champion riding for the Repsol Honda team is loving the view as he is ahead of the pack. Whether during qualifiers or the actual race, Marquez is a dominant force in MotoGP. Such dominance has particularly earned him a place in the annual BMW M Award, giving him another key to a brand new BMW M4 CS.

BMW has been handling out cars to top MotoGP qualifiers since 2003 through the BMW M Award. Actually, the 2017 BMW M Award is considered as the 15th edition of MotoGP’s Best Qualifier award, which honors the rider who manage to provide the strongest overall performance in the one-season qualifying sessions. This year, Marquez earned a total of 343 points to secure the M Awards, around 86 points ahead of his closest rival.

For Marquez, winning the BMW M Award is nothing new. In fact, this year is the fifth time he won the prestigious award, which means he already has keys to five BMW M cars. Essentially, Marquez secured a third of the total BMW M Award (15) handed out to MotoGP riders. Other recipients of the BMW M Award include Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner (three awards each), Jorge Lorenzo (two awards), Sete Gibernau and Nicky Hayden. These MotoGP riders also received a car from BMW M for topping the season qualifiers.

BMW M4 Coupe tuned by Liberty Walk gets striking body kit, Forgiato TEC 2.2-R wheels

Customizing cars according to client’s tastes and preferences is nothing new for Liberty Walk. After all, the Japanese tuning company has been modifying cars for years. One of its latest works has been leaked to the public, and it comes in the form of a customized BMW M4 Coupe (F82).

Liberty Walk calls its works as remodeling, instead of customization or tuning. But whatever or however the company calls its creations, Liberty Walk has been known for hand-built body kits. From a Lamborghini Murcielago to a Ferrari 458 Italia, Liberty Walk’s customization works has already attracted the attention of the world.

Thus, it is no wonder why an owner of a BMW M4 tapped Liberty Walk to customize his or her luxuriously sporty ride. At first look, this customized BMW M4 may not be as flashy or as attention-grabbing as other tuned M4 models. However, it should be pointed out that Liberty Walk’s customization works revolves on the wishes of the client. Thus, if the client just wanted to have a ride unique from other M4s without gaudy looks, Liberty Walk would follow what was specified by the client.

Speed Yellow BMW M4 Convertible by AC Schnitzer stuns crowds in Abu Dhabi

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are among a small number of places where flashy cars are a common sight. You will need something really unique if you would like to stand out from the crowd. One fine example is this Speed Yellow BMW M4 Convertible that has been tuned by AC Schnitzer. Abu Dhabi and Al Ain get their vehicles from Abu Dhabi Motors, the official importer of BMW, Alpina and AC Schnitzer vehicles.

This AC Schnitzer M4 is a beauty. No one will disagree with that statement even after seeing treatments from other tuners like Liberty Walk. The front splitter, drive planes, mirror caps and rear accents are made with carbon fiber bits.

The upgrades are so smooth that they look as if they have been equipped from the factory. This M4 was also given the dark finished exhaust tips that look more than amazing. But if there’s one thing that a lot of people are unsure about when it comes to styling is the AC Schnitzer AC1 wheels with thin spokes, as they don’t seem to go too well with the rest of the body.

Alpha-N Performance transforms ordinary BMW M4 into an M4 GTS rival

Putting a standard BMW M4 Coupe next to the M4 GTS is like comparing a fast runner to an athletic sprinter. A typical BMW M4 may be the performance version of the 4 Series, but the M4 GTS is the one with steroids. However, a recent project by German tuner Alpha-N Performance has resulted to a tweaked M4 Coupe that has enough capability to beat the M4 GTS.

The tweaks implemented by Alpha-N Performance on the M4 Coupe aren’t your ordinary modifications. After all, the Alpha-N Performance’s BMW M4 was able to complete a lap in the Nurburgring circuit I Germany faster than the record set by the BMW M4 GTS. Nurburgring has been a benchmark for performance in the auto world – considering its complicated course -- and carmakers as well as tuners have been trying to prove their vehicle’s worth by doing a run in the so-called Green Hell.

Alpha-N Performance started out with some modifications on its biturbo 3.0-liter straight-six engine. Ordinarily, this engine could deliver 425 hp (431 PS) of max output as well as 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of peak torque, allowing the M4 Coupe to sprint from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds via a standard six-speed manual transmission (3.9 seconds with M-DCT transmission).

Last month at BMW’s Abu Dhabi dealership, the company revealed the M3 in a San Marino Blue exterior finish, which received plenty of compliments. This month, the new M4 gets the same look, but comes with a sportier appeal.

First of all, the BMW M4 (F82) was fitted with the M Performance body kit, making it much more aggressive. Physically, it comes with a carbon fiber rear wing, carbon fiber front spoiler, mirror covers, and boot lid spoiler. A set of dual tone silver and blue wheels comes with the body kit. Meanwhile, the interior also gets some carbon fiber on the gear selector, handbrake level, the console and the dash. To match its sporty exterior, the M4’s cabin was given an upgrade with the orange leather interior.

As for the exhaust system, the M4 was equipped with a custom Armytrix exhaust. In fact, you can hear it roar online. It definitely sounds more powerful than the factory model vehicle.

A new BMW commercial from China captures Bruce Lee’s striking words about the power of water. BMW has taken an excerpt from a 1972 interview by Pierre Berton for the advertisement where Lee talks about the water’s significance to flow and crash. The meaningful words he left were beautifully interpreted in a span of 1 minute and 5 seconds.

During the entire 1:05 minute commercial, the iconic martial artist was speaking his mind in the background while the video of the M4 GTS’ new water injection was being played in slow motion. In his exact words, Lee can be quoted as saying “empty your mind…be formless…shapeless …like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. If you put water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. If you put it on a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow on it…or it can crash”. The commercial ended with “be water, my friend” as Lee’s parting words. The idea may be entirely philosophical but it makes perfect sense in the automotive context.

The new water injection system on the BMW M4 GTS was actually derived from Bosch. It works by spraying adequate amount of water into the engine’s intake manifold to improve performance. The liquid evaporates and cools down the chamber letting the turbo run at higher boost. As a result, the 3.0-liter biturbo 6-cylinder engine produces up to 464 hp (368kW) and 442lb-ft (600Nm) of powerful torque. Once the 5.0-liter (1.3gal.) is totally consumed, the engine’s computer redials the power output until such time the tank is refilled. The water should take up to 2,896km (1,800 miles) between refills as estimated by BMW.

Here it comes, the much-awaited exclusive limited-run special-edition model of the new BMW M4. Filling the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the track-focused BMW M4 GTS, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS is the latest of its successful M special editions.

This limited edition M4 model is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine, which thanks to the M TwinPower Turbo technology, could deliver 338 kW (460 hp) of max output at 6,250 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available between 4,000 rpm and 5,380 rpm. Compared to the BMW M4 with Competition Package, the new M4 CS delivers more power with its additional 10 hp of output and 50 Nm (37 lb.-ft.) of torque.

With this level of power on hand, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS could dash from zero to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, on the way to reaching an electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Power is sent to the wheels from the engine -- as standard -- through a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic.

German automaker BMW has recently announced that its most hardcore 4 Series, the 2018 BMW M4 GT4, can now be acquired, for a corresponding fee of course. The German automotive company primarily revealed plans for a GT4-spec M4 Coupe last year and recently after testing the vehicle over 12,00 miles, BMW confirmed that the hardcore M4 GT4 is ready.

A year has passed since BMW Motorsport revealed its specific plan in doing a GT4-spec M4 Coupe race car, and now the factory-built vehicle is being unveiled in full following the 20,000 km (12,472 miles) of gruelling tests.

Positioned between the M235i Racing and the M6 GT3 flagship vehicle, the upcoming M4 GT4 is considered as a mishmash of the regular road savvy M4 Coupe and the bulkier sold-out GTS version, all combined in a lighter vehicle. The inline 3.0 L turbocharged engine that can produce around 431hp and 7 speed dual-clutch automatic transmission have been solely based on the road version car and accustomed for the new track made application.

An RHD (right hand drive) BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition has been listed to be for sale by Romans International, UK’s leading supercar dealership. The first owner of this rare BMW would have had to dish out about £135,000 in the UK. Production of this rare RHD DTM Champion Edition is limited to only 200 units.

BMW revealed the M4 DTM Champion Edition in October 2016 as it paid tribute to Marco Wittmann, BMW Motorsport Works Driver who won the championship title in the same year. In just 2 years since making his first championship win, Wittmann once again held the DTM driver’s title in the 2016 finale. Never before has BMW come out with a special edition model that is so closely related to motor racing.

Unlike the standard M4, the DTM Champion Edition gets an additional 51kW and 50Nm under the hood. As a result of this, the Champion Edition model boasts a zero-100kmh acceleration in just 3.8 seconds with top speed of up to 305 km/h.

Now, it is official. The BMW M4 CS (Club Sport) is the real thing. Since BMW has already ended the production of the track-focused M4 GTS, the M4 CS – for now – is the new top-of-the-range model of the BMW 4 Series. While BMW unveiled a BMW M4 CS in Spain a year ago, this was only a project of BMW Spain, and not created by BMW M GmbH.

This Spanish version was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Then in January this year, a slightly camouflaged M4 test mule was spotted. We were sure it isn’t the M4 GTS, since its production has already ended. However, this test mule is laden with features from the M4 GTS like its bonnet. It also comes with some cosmetic tweaks from the recent Life Cycle Impulse of the BMW 4 Series.

Then, an M4 CS looking similar to the test mule in Sweden was seen doing a commercial shoot in California with BMW’s factory DTM driver Augusto Farfus Jr.  Apparently, this is the real M4 CS that BMW is now introducing officially to the global market.

Most of the car enthusiasts perceive the BMW M4 Cabrio as a posh sports car, but the brand never rests on its laurels and focuses instead on offering top performance.

Some vehicle owners like to keep their wheels in check but the individuals behind this open top car is determined to raise the sleek aesthetic by further modifying the automobile. There’s some disagreement on whether it’s working. The stock wheels of the M4 were replaced with blood red Vossen VPS 314T forged directional concave wheels, which gave the sports car a more rugged look.

When compared with the BMW M4 coupe, the roofless car weighs 250 kg (550 lbs) more and is not as fast or as dynamic. Nevertheless, just like its BMW M4 Coupe kin, the M4 Cabrio is powered by the ever impressive forced induction which powers its rear wheels. In place of the M3's convertible that is equipped with 4.0 liter V8, power for the M4 convertible comes with a 425 hp and 406 lb/ft of torque from 1,850 rpm all the way to 5,500 rpm. For its transmission, the variants include a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed dual clutch automatic.

If you could remember the first time that the F82 generation of the M4 was introduced by BMW in 2014 – the performance version of the 4 Series – it was wrapped in a beautiful yet sporty exterior color finish. Thus, as the BMW M4’s official launch color, Austin Yellow has been one of the most-sought color finishes simply because it appropriately matches the performance coupe’s dynamism and athleticism.

While Austin Yellow may have become one of the most sought and most common finishes for the BMW M4, it didn’t stop customers – even those seeking for something unique and bespoke – from opting for this hue.

Now, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors – the largest BMW dealership in the world – has managed to take a hold of this special kind of BMW M4 (F82) as wrapped in Austin Yellow exterior color. Well, the exterior color might be one of the most common exterior finishes for the BMW M4, but when combined and complemented by a number of specially made elements from M Performance, Austin Yellow stands out very well. These components are finished in gloss black and carbon fiber, both helping accentuate the sporty appearance of the BMW M4.

The BMW M4 (F82) has been a favorite subject of modifications among many tuners as well as individual fans and enthusiasts. Wheels Boutique is joining this fray by implementing a couple of simple yet attention-grabbing tweaks on the BMW M4.

By itself, the BMW M4 is already good looking – solid yet dynamic. But Wheels Boutique customized the BMW M4 in a pretty straightforward manner. It wrapped the BMW M4 in a customized exterior paint finish called Silverstone Metallic II. This exterior paint finish may look like your typical shade of silver when viewed from afar or in pictures. However, when viewed closely on some particular angles, Silverstone Metallic II further accentuates not only the lines but also the curvy surfaces of the BMW M4 – thanks to its light blue hue. This is certainly true on the BMW M4’s character lines that flow down on both sides and its seemingly building front bonnet.

Of course – as its name indicates -- Wheels Boutique’s specialty is on vehicle rims. So, the main point of this customization is to show how grand Wheels Boutique’s wheel selection for the BMW M4 could be. For this particular BMW M4, Wheels Boutique decided to employ a set of HRE P101 wheels finished in matte black.

Who would not want a matching sports car and a super bike? Oh, and a matching watch to complete the package! In celebration of BMW’s partnership with Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, the French and Bavarian companies put together a special deal dubbed the M4 Competition Package. It is set to be offered this spring and costs a whopping €180,000 (or around $190,100). Being stylish doesn’t come cheap nowadays.

So the Competition Package comes with a special edition M4 Magny-Cours Edition. Its exterior is painted all white, accented with its signature red, blue, and black (typical M colour) stripes that run on the sides of the car. It comes with a rear wing and front lip made of carbon fiber, and the best part – a set of 20 inch multi-spoke alloy wheels (this is probably my favourite feature). Sounds very much like another outstanding lightweight car fitted with plenty of goodies. There’s everything to like about this offering.

Just like the standard BMW M4, it is provided with a 3.0 liter inline-six turbocharged engine under its hood, producing 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) to the rear wheels. In just four seconds, it can speed up to 62 miles per hour from a standstill (0-100 kilometers per hour). But that’s only for the variant that comes equipped with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is optional.

Will there be a BMW M4 CS? Apparently, there is a Club Sport version of the BMWM4 after it was sighted in California doing a shoot for a new commercial ad, courtesy of a member of the Bimmer Post forum.

People may be wondering if this is the same vehicle that was unveiled nearly a year ago in Spain. No, it isn’t. Yes, BMW did unfurl a BMW M4 CS in Spain but it wasn’t what we expected. As members of the Bimmer Post forum pointed out, the Spanish BMW M4 CS was only a project of BMW Spain, and it was not created by BMW M GmbH. The guys from the forum also noted that Spanish BMW M4 CS was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Sorry to burst your M4 CS bubbles.

As far as we know, BMW only produced only 803 units of the M4 GTS, which is considered as its meanest and fastest sports car. Essentially a power-up evolution of the M4 coupe, the BMW M4 GTS is one of BMW’s most track-ready cars, thanks to the M technologies applied on its powertrain, chassis and lightweight construction. Sporting an iconic CS moniker, the M4 CS is basically a toned down and “civilized” version of the GTS, serving as a middle child between the standard M4 and the M4 GTS. This is basically why the M4 CS should possess a number of features and elements from the M4 GTS. However, as a civilized version, the M4 CS won’t be as powerful and as extreme as the M4 GTS.

Some customers are difficult to satisfy. There have been instances when customers would opt for a more powerful version of a vehicle. Thus, it would be quite logical to say that one of the primary motives why some customers prefer the BMW M4 over a typical BMW 4 Series Coupe is the power of the car. There is certainly a huge gap in the power levels between the M4 and a regular 4 Series. Customers with a taste for performance are likely to grab the BMW M4.

German tuner Cam-Shaft, however, could also say that there is quite a difference between the potential of its tuned BMW M4 and the power of a regular M4. Cam-Shaft is offering a program that could raise further the power levels of the current M4. As it is, the M4 is powered by a 6.3-liter inline-six engine that is lighter by around 10 kilograms than its predecessors like the V8, although it features similar power levels.

This inline-six is capable of delivering up to 425 hp (431 PS) of max output available between 5,500 rpm and 7,300 rpm, as well as 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of peak torque available between 1,850 rpm and 5,500 rpm. At this level, the BMW could dash from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds via a standard six-speed manual transmission (3.9 seconds with M-DCT transmission).

As expected, four years after the current generation of the BMW 4 Series was introduced in 2013 with the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the German premium carmaker is implementing a Life Cycle Impulse.

This is also known as a mid-cycle refresh. BMW gave the 3 Series an FCI in 2016, and this year it is the turn of the 4 Series.

What is good about this mid-cycle update is the fact that BMW is refreshing not only one model of the 4 Series, but all of them. BMW has revised the 4 Series Coupe, 4 Series Convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe and the M4 for the 2017 model year.

It may not look very sporty but this new BMW M4 (F82) wrapped in Sakhir Orange exterior color with golden rims sure is dynamic and elegantly gorgeous.

Sakhir Orange is one of several colors included in the standard palette for the M4. In fact, it is also available for other offerings of the BMW M family, like the M3, the M5 and the M6. Since its introduction, Sakhir Orange has been among the favorite finishes for the M4, whether stock or laden with aftermarket parts. This shade of orange has always given the BMW M4 an elegantly standout appearance whether on a standstill or on the move.

Such is the case of this new BMW M4. Perhaps after looking at other M4 units wrapped in Sakhir Orange and dressed in various aftermarket parts, the owner of this M4 got some ideas running through his or her head on how to proceed with the transformation of his/her own sports coupe. All its owner must do is to get the right aftermarket parts, install them and provide the necessary modifications.

BMW recently held its year-end celebration in Munich, Germany. The same motorsport event had on display the upcoming BMW M4 GT4. It was then wrapped in camouflage to conceal its design but an official image was also released afterwards.

BMW’s new racecar will take part in the “24 Hours of Dubai “ slated on January 2018. It will be tested extensively starting next month in preparation for its official racing debut. Deliveries are expected to begin around third or fourth quarter next year.

The M4 GT4 Coupe would be the next in line to BMW’s M235i Racing model. The entry-level racecar was first introduced in 2014 and has at least 170 examples built.

BMW has officially ended the production cycle for what is considered as its meanest and fastest sports car – the BMW M4 GTS. Basically a power-up evolution of the BMW M4 coupe, the BMW M4 GTS is one of the premium carmaker’s most track-ready cars, thanks to M technologies applied on its powertrain, chassis and lightweight construction front.

In an announcement in April 2016, BMW said it was launching the BMW M4 GTS limited to 700 units to celebrate the 30th year of the BMW M3. So, many believed that the final number of produced BMW M4 GTS available to customers around the world would be no more than 700 units. However, in the latest development, it turns out that the German company has produced a total of 830 units, and that includes 21 pre-production examples, six press vehicles and 803 customer cars. This information is derived from the actual VINs (vehicle identification number) of the produced BMW M4 GTS.

These 803 examples of the BMW M4 GTS include 278 left-hand drive units for Europe, 120 right-hand drive cars for Europe and 405 examples bound for North America (United States and Canada). The last GTS that came out from BMW’s assembly facilities – on November 29, 2016 -- is a model for North America, wrapped in Black Sapphire exterior color. Originally, BMW had planned for 700 units of the BMW M4 GTS, with 300 cars to the US, 80 examples to Germany and 50 models to Canada. But with the final count tagged at 803 units, the German premium carmaker has sure overshoot its production target for the BMW M4 GTS. This might have something to do with the law of supply and demand.
